The CW's steadily building the hype for the approaching premieres of their new series. Some new key art was released, showing off the lead characters of Arrow, Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, MD. Oops! Someone's not wearing a shirt!
First up among the new posters the CW released for their new Fall primetime series, we have Arrow (premieres Wednesday, October 10 at 8/7c on CW), which has the lead character Oliver Queen (Stephen Arnell) sporting a pair of pants and his arrows. He seems to have forgotten his shirt.
And without a top, we see that he's covered in scars. Injuries sustained in the shipwreck that left him stranded on an island for five years? Perhaps. I won't pretend to know much about the origin story of this super character. What I will say is that, muscles aside, he seems bit worn and torn. Much more so than the Beast in the CW's Beauty and the Beast, in fact.
Beauty and the Beast premieres Thursday, October 11 at 9/8c and stars Kristin Kreuk as the "beauty" of the story, playing a homicide detective whose mother was killed years ago. At that time, the "beast" rescued Kreuk's character and now, years later, she's about to cross his path again. The poster below shows Kreuk and "Beast" Vincent Keller, played by Jay Ryan. Do not be fooled by his dreaminess. Note the unruly hair, his glowy Twilight eyes and that scar on his cheek. Tell-tale signs of a beast… right?
Finally, we have Emily Owens, MD, which has Mamie Gummer playing the lead role of a young doctor attempting to navigate the high-school-like social atmosphere that is her hospital work environment.
This is actually a pretty cute poster, which has a nervous looking Gummer showing off an X-ray that reveals the butterflies in her stomach. Emily Owens, MD premieres Tuesday, October 15 at 9/8c on the CW.
