The CW has released the first promotional poster for "Arrow" season two via Twitter, which puts the trio of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), John Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) front and center with the rest of the cast in the background.

Rickards and Ramsey joining Amell in the foreground of the poster certainly seems to indicate an increased role for their characters this year -- especially given the rise in popularity of Felicity Smoak and Rickards' upgrading to a series regular.

"She took over," Rickards told CBR at Comic-Con International. "It wasn't even in my thought process [that I would become a series regular]. I was so glad they wanted me on the show, and then they brought me back and then all of a sudden, the word 'regular' was getting thrown around. I wasn't really focused on the word or the title because I'd never been in that situation before. It's exciting, it's thrilling, it's busy."

Check out the new promotional poster below.
