'Arrow' Season 2 Promo: Oliver Goes To War Over The Devastation In Starling City (VIDEO)

The Season 2 premiere of The CW's "Arrow" is just around the corner, which means it's time for an action-packed new promo trailer. Oliver (Stephen Amell) may have failed to save Starling City from Malcolm Merlyn's (John Barrowman) destruction in the Season 1 finale, but as our hero points out in the video below, "what doesn't kill me only makes me sharper."

"Arrow" Season 2 has been scoring guest stars left and right in recent weeks, with "Spartacus" star Cynthia Addai-Robinson cast as DC Comics villain Amanda Waller, and "Orphan Black's" Dylan Bruce set to appear as a co-worker for Katie Cassidy's Laurel. Next season will also feature The Flash in Episode 8, ahead of a potential spinoff; Caity Lotz has joined the show as Sara Lance, who will play an iteration of Black Canary; Michael Jai White will play the Bronze Tiger; Kevin Alejandro has signed on to play Sebastian Blood; Summer Glau will appear as Isabel Rochev; and John Barrowman and Kelly Hu will return as Malcolm Merlyn and China White respectively.

"Arrow" Season 2 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
