(Green) ARROW

Postby jinpei05 » Jan 19th, 2012 @ 1:23pm

Oliver Queen's returning to the CW. Kinda.

Simply called Arrow, the adaptation of the DC Comics character is written by Andrew Kreisberg (Fringe, Warehouse 13, The Vampire Diaries) and Marc Guggenheim (FlashForward, Green Lantern), based on a story by Greg Berlanti and Guggenheim, with all three executive producing. Arrow will have no connection to the Smallville incarnation of Green Arrow, played by Justin Hartley. There is one Smallville collaborator involved though, as David Nutter, who directed the Smallville pilot (along with the pilots to Supernatural, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and many other series) is expected to direct the Arrow pilot.

There needs to be a superhero show on TV. Hope it gets picked up.

I hear that show would have ruined every comic book franchise on the planet after one episode.

It was weird but fun. Biggest problem was aside from the tough buttkicker and savvy business mind, they added a third persona of totally lonely hottest chick of all time, which kind of overloaded the pilot. Given the total abundance of absolute horseshit I've been watching on television since fall 2011, it couldn't possibly have faired much worse, and it would have gotten a superhero show on TV. We really do need a new superhero show on TV.

How about a Swamp Thing reboot, only instead of just remaking OG Swamp Thing they do a new show with Animal Man based on Lemire and Synder's current runs? What's that? Not in a million hojillion years? Well, ok. :(

The new Green Arrow has been found.

Deadline reports that Stephen Amell will play Oliver Queen in Arrow, the new CW pilot. While the Canadian actor is not a familiar name, he's been working steadily the past couple of years, including recurring roles on The Vampire Diaries, Hung and Private Practice. He also guest starred in the Christmas episode of New Girl.

Amell's new high profile role will see him starring as Queen in the DC Comics adaptation, with the character described by Deadline as, "a wealthy playboy and billionaire industrialist-turned-outspoken politician in Star City."

Casting news for Dinah Lance:

The new Green Arrow has found his Black Canary. Well, his Dinah Lance at least, Canary's alter ego in the comics. Deadline reports that Katie Cassidy (Supernatural, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Harper's Island) has been cast as the female lead in Arrow, the new CW pilot based on DC Comics' Green Arrow.

Don't expect to see Dinah "Laurel" Lance in costume though, at least at the beginning. Deadline says the character is "a young legal clinic attorney who shares a romantic past with Oliver." There's no mention of her also having the Black Canary identity at this point.

Cassidy joins Stephen Amell (who had an amusing guest role on New Girl last night as Cece's shrooming boyfriend) as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow and Susanna Thompson as Oliver's mother, Moira Queen.

so they took the Smallville costume and gave it sleeves? This from an academy award winning costume designer.

Mine was pretty ugly (it was an Iksar) and I'd still consider it better looking than that pic.

Wasn't that what you called the lizard-people in EQ1? I can't remember what they're called, honestly. Just that they were an expansion-pack race that I played. I did a quick google search of "lizard people everquest" and pulled that title.

Yeah that's the Iksar but you couldn't be Iksar rangers in EQ1, poser. Warrior, Necro, SK, Shaman, Monk and Beastlord (post-Luclin). Wasn't til EQ2 that any race could play any class.

I could have sworn I was an archer, but it's been so long maybe I'm just talking out of my ass (that was during middleschool for me). I only got my dumpy lizard guy up to level 30 when I ragequit forever and repressed most of those memories.
