The CW released the first Arrow season 3 trailer on Friday. On Saturday, Stephen Amell announced that Ra’s al Ghul will be the big bad in season 3, so The CW has released a new extended trailer that adds about 30 seconds of Ra’s al Ghul footage at the end of the clip. Ra’s al Ghul was referenced several times in season 2, so fans guessed this was coming. His presence in this footage is represented by camera pans across a faceless costume and ominous voice-over, so it will be interesting to see who the Arrow team casts as the immortal villain.
Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Wolland and Caity Lotz along with new cast members Peter Stormare, Devon Aoki and Brandon Routh, Arrow season 3 returns October 8. Check out the first look at Ra’s al Ghul after the jump.
