Arrow makes its second-season debut this Wednesday on Time Warner 's CW network. If ratings remain strong, it could be another catalyst for the stock, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video interview with the Fool's Mike Finarelli.
Season One went well for the network, consistently drawing more than 2.7 million viewers and occasionally outperforming its top show, The Vampire Diaries. But now Warner wants to extend the franchise and use the show and its ratings success to introduce new characters.
In addition to DC Comics' scarlet speedster, The Flash, a recent report over at Comic Book Resources reveals that the show-runners plan to introduce the villainous android Amazo (or some form of the character) during Season Two of Arrow.
What are the chances Warner will be as successful as Walt Disney in expanding the appeal of its comic-book properties? Please watch the video to get Tim's full take, and then leave a comment to let us know where you stand.
