‘Can’t Be Stopped’ showcases Oliver’s new Team Arrow and the new threats in Star City
The countdown to Arrow Season 5 continues as The CW has released a new extended trailer today. Titled ‘Can’t Be Stopped,’ the trailer features a nice mix of previously released and new footage.
We get plenty of looks at the new Team Arrow in action, including Wild Dog in his full costume, complete with hockey mask. Oliver seems especially concerned about Curtis since, despite his status as an Olympic athlete, is not a fighter.
The trailer ends with Oliver tied up and assaulted by an unknown bad guy. With the rest of the team assembled elsewhere, Thea assures them that “Ollie can take care of himself.”
Here’s the official synopsis for Arrow Season 5:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. Oliver returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), former police captain Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum). Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.
