"Arrow" star Stephen Amell was joined on Saturday's panel by co-stars David Ramsey, Colton Haynes, Emily Bett Rickards and Katie Cassidy, as well as executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.

The panel launched with a trailer for the second season showing Amell's Oliver Queen contemplating a new nickname and a butt-kicking masked woman believed to be the Black Canary, the famous DC Comics heroine and Arrow love interest.

Kreisberg hinted that "one of the things we're doing this season is we're telling the beginning of the Black Canary story" but wouldn't say which character would be underneath the mask.

Season 2 of "Arrow" premieres Oct. 9. on The CW.
