Arrow, The CW's latest foray into the superhero genre, doesn't premiere until Oct. 10. But some new promo shots give us our first look at one of the baddies this dark new version of Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) will be facing—Deadshot.

Arrow will face off with the classic DC baddie, portrayed here by Michael Rowe, in the third episode of the new series.

In the comics, Deadshot is often portrayed as a "can't miss" assassin, and he has been a member of both the Suicide Squad and Secret Six. We're definitely curious to see how exactly he winds up in Starling City.

Costume design is admittedly different from his comic look, but it fits pretty well with the "gritty" style we've heard so much about.

The story of Arrow will follow former playboy millionaire Oliver Queen (Amell), who is shipwrecked on an island for five years and comes back as a hardened vigilante out for justice.

Check out the pic below (the other is attached above) and let us know what you think of Deadshot's faceoff with Arrow.
