When it comes to the beautiful abs of Stephen Amell in “Arrow,” The CW is a little shameless. That’s OK. They are great abs, and the network has the responsibility to share them with the rest of us. A new video promoting “Arrow” Season 2 — including some footage from the premiere episode — highlights the beautiful and often bare chest of Oliver Queen.

If you don’t realize how great these abs are, the video makes that clear in the first few seconds. We also get a proxy on-screen to share our joy — Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) likes Oliver’s abs as much as anyone.

Need any more shirtlessness? Check out these posters for “Arrow” Season 2.

What new footage is there?

  • Oliver picks up his new bow in the new-and-improved lair.
  • Thea (Willa Holland) and Roy (Colton Haynes) start making out.
  • After an explosion in the woods, a half-naked Oliver lands atop Felicity (just after he saves her). Felicity’s response of “God, you’re really sweaty” seems appropriate.
  • Yes, that’s Diggle (David Ramsey) getting up in the background of the half-naked Oliver and Felicity moment.

Want more “Arrow”? Season 2 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
