On 18 January, 2012, The CW greenlit the pilot for a proposed Green Arrow series with Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg producing. The series, Arrow, will offer a fresh take on the character. Smallville's Justin Hartley will not be involved in the new project.

In Arrow, Oliver Queen will be in his late twenties. Dinah Laurel Lance will also be a featured character, though not as the Black Canary and using her middle name "Laurel." Oliver Queen's mother Moira is still alive in the present day, with Oliver Queen returning to "Starling City" after people believed he was dead for five years.
Moving at a seemingly rapid pace, the CW's "Green Arrow" television series, "Arrow", has cast its lead. Deadline reports that Stephen Amell has landed the Oliver Queen role, officially described in the casting sides as follows:

A 27 year old reformed bad boy, who after having spent five years shipwrecked on a tiny, brutally dangerous island in the South China Sea returns to town a different man. Or to be more specific, a tortured, thoughtful master of the bow with a ferocious determination to make a difference.

No stranger to television, Amell has appeared recently on television shows like "Hung", "90210" and "The Vampire Diaries".

Dating all the way back to 1941 when he made his first appearance in "More Fun Comics" #73, the comic book iteration of Queen is a billionaire who leads a double life as expert archer and costumed hero Green Arrow. Over the years, Queen has been a member of the Justice League and even Mayor of his hometown, Star City.

I'm surprised yet pleased that Green Arrow will be a spiritual successor to Smallville..............although I was hoping it would be Eric Kripke's adaption of Deadman.

    Setting expectations to low. I doubt that the CW can produce a watchable show based on Green Arrow.

    personally i think connor woulda made a far more dynamic and interesting character. an archer with world class martial arts skills trained by the shaolin(?). plus he'd have all that back history they could play with. it also leaves the ability to have smallville people who may play older characters come through.

    Connor was the only sidekick character I thought was useless, just Monk Arrow with a lame history and super badass Oliver Queen is good enough.

    I don't have faith in any CW produced superhero show and budget, so meh.

    No one includes her! Spoiler sucked, she was just a plot device from the Robin comics that somehow got attention.

    like i said she was a far worse sidekick. i mean i could skim through teen titans right now and pick out at last 4 worse sidekicks than kung fu connor. and its more the potential for awesomeness that i think would work. no one cares about a young oliver...its old man oliver thats the fun one. young oliver will just be angsty to be angsty.

    though it says he was trapped in china, so i have a feeling they may be putting in elements of connor. i would be surprised if he knows crazy kung fu and is on some buddist shit since he's a reformed badboy.

    As Connor ever been a sidekick? Even when he got branched when Ollie came back he was never used in a sidekick captivity from what I remember. I could care less about him. I always found him boring.

    As long as the action really exploits the awesomeness of trick arrows, this could prove interesting.

    You know, I really just thought I should add this video here you know? You know I was just thinking about this show and stumbled across this vid detailing how the show would be you know? You know I'm not sure if I agree with their vision but I am interested in seeing if they can make this into something fun you know?

    Anyway you know, I'm glad this thread was already made so I didn't have to do it you know. You know this joke isn't very funny. I'll stop now.

    I know people are watching it. Get on board.

    I dig it a bit.

    + Katie Cassidy is Dinah Lance
    + Her friend is hot and used to be on General Hospital
    + Katie Cassidy is in it
    + More hot chicks are coming
    + Lots of people dying (they even pretty much showed a suicide)
    - Green Arrow has killed at least 5 people from my count. I don't like my heroes killing people
    - Too many camera shots of Green Arrow with his shirt off but so far, I have yet to see Katie Cassidy's skin.
    + Katie Cassidy is in it
    + Black people have important roles in the show

    Katie Cassidy lights my fire.

    So Im just gonna share the love and post here as well. Pretty good so far, Im loving the flashbacks similar to everyone else and I love the steady exposition the show is using, while we have a general idea of what went down on the island we don't know exactly what the deal was so gradually finding out is fun. Really looking forward to where they take the numerous plot lines this season, we all pretty much know arrow and whats her name are gonna get it on eventually, but other than that, pretty much every other character/plot line is completely unpredictable for me particularly since I know so little of the character.

    Oh and the speedy nod in the first episode was cute, speaking of which, I wonder where they are going with the arc with his sister. Im liking it so far, I can definitely see where the sis is coming from despite not agreeing with her actions.

    So CW picked up Arrow for a full Season.

    Yeah...........I also have an issue with GA outright killing people.
    I hope it's not commonplace.

    - Speedy is cute but in a pornstar kind of way.
    - Can't wait for Dinah to go all blonde.
    - Dinah showed off some hand-to-hand. Me likey.
    - Diggy's sister-in-law looks like a piece
    - Looks like Oli killed Deadshot. Come on man...... I don't like that shit. I want my heroes to be more than just killers. But maybe next week Oli's mind will start to change about the killing he's been doing
    - There are POAs all over the place.
    - Show started off with Oli's shirt off again. I'm not a fan of that either
    - Mmmmmmmm.... Katie Cassidy

    Pros:

    Ollie doesn't pull punches.
    Dinah is actually blonde and has dyed brunette (see the photo of her and Ollie where she is blonde).
    Speedy is beyond tappable.

    Cons:

    Less than spectacular scripting.

    Ok first off long time fan of green arrow so huge skeptic about how this show would turn out. I got to say I enjoy it. Pacing is alright it could use alittle bit of a speed up. Now for the interesting stuff. It combines current run Green Arrow with Long Bow hunters post Hal and Ollie excellent adventures team up. What I mean by this is Ollie still has money like current run but kills people. Ollie killed people after Hal left earth to do space cop things. It was after Dinah got or almost got raped and he couldn't do anything and killed the rapist. Then he toured around the world by himself met Shado fathered another bastard outside of Connor and got trained by some league memebers kinda like how he did in later run green arrow pre 52 where Natas trained him. During this time he was killing people and green arrow went to dark horse I want to say or it might have been Vertigo because the content was no longer kid friendly. This has all since been retconned IE 52 but it is nothing new. Speedy reference was a nod to both Roy being a druggy heroin I think but it has been awhile and the last speedy was female, Mia I thinkwas her name but I can't remember. Merlyn being his best friend will be interesting as how will he get his training to be Ollies Rival? He was a league member and much older also. Ollies Dad and mom werent alive, also Ollie was basically a light hearted Batman when he was introduced. Second episode had a nod to Batman Beyond with the League assassin "Kirare" being the name of the poison that Dead Shot used on his bullets. Dead Shot might not be dead as he has been shot in the face before, kinda an easy fix if they want him back. Overall I am pleased as a green arrow fan as well as DC. Merlyn being used as a love interest foil akin to dark knight harvey dent for Bruce is weird but we will see were it goes. Ollie will get Dinah in the end, Merlyn will become a rival. If it makes it that far, heres hoping.

    New ep tonight......
    - There are just POAs everywhere. Dinah is The One, but the side candy is beautiful. That usually makes for a great show/
    - Ollie didn't kill anybody this episode. That's good.
    - Digs decided to be Ollie's non-sidekick. Which basically means he's a sidekick. Might as well call him Jerome.
    - This episode talked a lot about killing but Ollie didn't kill. I hope he doesn't anymore.
    - Looks like Dinah's dad found out who GA is and next wekk will "prosecute him to the full extent of the law!"
    - Also next week....... Ollie and Dinah kiss. :smooch:


    This has been THE INVINCIBLE SWORDSMAN saying:

    I paid no attention to whatever Ollie's mom and her boyfriend were doing....... except when that hot nerdy chick was on the screen.

    I can verify this statement is false. There do exist rare diamonds in the rough.

    Maybe the super rare "sort of"cute IT girl but not a girl like this....I doubt most girls in any technical profession come close to looking like her.

    Anyways after 4 episodes I find the show fairly decent. I wasn't much of a arrow fan outside the DCAU and I don't have his new 52 run, so my knowledge on his history is very minimal. However I think the show has all the makings of being a CW "hit"and so far I'm entertained and mused by what I'm seeing. It's far from perfect but it will be the only other show I will probably watch on TV(outside walking dead)that I can see myself having a good time with. I hope it doesn't get pulled off the air anytime soon cause I have the feeling it does have a lot of potential in future episodes. I should also add that the urge to fap whenever speedy is in her schoolgirl outfit is a powerful comic force, she makes every episode a good 3-4 mins longer.

    I think Ollie should just have a green mask like in the comics instead of a spray painted mask. I also wonder if they will give dinah a sonic scream or something, I can see this show mixing elements of superpowers without it seeming outta place.
