The CW is proving once again that it knows how to promote “Arrow.” The superhero series is using the tagline “Coming Back Strong” for its sophomore season, and its stars are not only coming back strong — they’re coming back shirtless! Four new posters show the muscular physiques of Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Colton Haynes and Manu Bennett. THIS is genius marketing all the way!
And anyone else notice that series star Amell looks more bulked up than he did last season — hey, man, you been working out or something?
Season 2 of ‘Arrow’ premieres Oct. 9 at 8pm ET on the CW.

“Arrow” star Stephen Amell reports that, as of last Friday, his 161,000 Facebook fans slightly outnumber his Twitter followers. With a preponderance of sexy photos and videos like this consistently being shared, is it any surprise the actor is a social-media sensation? This is how to gain notice for your fledgling TV series, celebs!
Here are pics and screen caps of videos posted in the past week as Amell and wife Cassandra Jean celebrated Canada Day and the Fourth of July, and as Amell began the first day of “Arrow” season 2 boot camp:
Also, Amell’s Facebook post from Friday promises many such goodies to come:
“Facebook Friends have surpassed Twitter. I did NOT see this coming a year ago when we started ramping up production for Season 1.
Many thanks, Facebook. There are exceptional things in store for the page.”
The bolding is mine, not Stephen’s, but did you really expect me to be able to control myself?
If you can’t wait either, it’s time to get social with Stephen:

Kudos to Team “Arrow” for giving the people what they want: more of star Stephen Amell’s stunning abs! And if they just happen to be on full display in the season finale of the freshman CW series, thanks to a set of chains? All the better! [Insert well-"Hung" joke here.] And all the easier for the public to picture the sexy Canadian as a potential Christian Grey in the upcoming “50 Shades of Grey” movie.
