Plenty of good stuff has come out of WonderCon over the weekend, and now The CW has a nice piece of hype as the network has unveiled our first official look at the Green Arrow in their new superhero series Arrow. It shows Stephen Amell as the title hero, and I have to say, this image is pretty damn cool, and almost makes me wish this was the first look at a Green Arrow film as opposed to a network series. Either way, it looks like this will be a satisfying replacement for the now finished Smallville series so fans can still get their superhero fix at The CW. Check out the full image after the jump with a few details on the series.
First of all, the costume is designed by Colleen Atwood (Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, Chicago and more), and it looks pretty damn slick. Here’s what Arrow pilot director/executive producer David Nutter had to say about the show and the costume:
“When I directed the pilot for Smallville, I knew that making Clark Kent relatable would be the key to audiences believing in him as a hero. Arrow is a different show — darker and harder-edged — but it’s the same core idea. We’re creating a real, believable world in which Oliver Queen can do incredible things. Colleen Atwood’s great work on the Arrow costume reflects that effort.”
Arrow also stars Katie Cassidy (Supernatural) and David Ramsay (Blue Bloods). The pilot was executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg, and Nutter, who is directing from a teleplay by Kreisberg & Guggenheim, and story by Berlanti & Guggenheim. Melissa Kellner Berman is co-executive producer.
