Of all the DC Comics’ pantheon of characters—who many times resemble mythical gods more than they do actual human beings—Green Arrow is one of the more realistic “superheroes,” due to his street-level status (that is, if you can get past the fact that he shoots trick arrows to save the day).

This is one of the many reasons the CW’s upcoming Green Arrow TV show has a better chance of being picked up for production than Wonder Woman ever did. Today, we have a first look at star Stephen Amell (Hung) in the Green Arrow TV costume.

From what we can see of the uniform (obviously, he’s shrouded in darkness and shadow because he’s oh so edgy), the newest Green Arrow costume looks like a grittier version of The New 52 costume, which itself was a riff on the costume that appeared in Smallville. Or maybe they’re both riffing on the one that appeared in Smallville?

The new costume was designed by Colleen Atwood of Alice in Wonderland fame. Pilot director and executive producer David Nutter said of the look:

“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.”

It seems that the lesson DC has learned from failed efforts like the Wonder Woman pilot and the Green Lantern film is that everything must be dark and edgy like Batman to make $$$. Of course, dark and edgy fits well enough with Green Arrow, but what happens when they decide to make a Plastic Man movie? What happens when that Booster Gold TV show comes to fruition? Hopefully, this isn’t the beginning of a wave of exclusively edgy content coming out of DC Entertainment over the next few years. A little edgy goes a long, long way.

Are you guys looking forward to the new Green Arrow TV Show? Let us know in the comments.

If the pilot gets picked up, Green Arrow will likely premiere on the CW this fall.

  1. I was interested in watching it, until I saw that it was going to be on the CW; that put me off quick smart. It was horrifying enough seeing Clark, Lex, Oliver, Jimmy and Davis Bloome (aka Doomsday) having their balls cut off and their back bones removed in Smallville just so that Lana and Chloe could have the upper hand; every freaking time, and it makes me shudder anew to think what the CW will do to Oliver Queen in this show, that they didn’t already do to him in S10 of SV.

    NO THANKS!

    • Try the show. I was worried about what CW would do with it but I like the character so much I thought I’d at least give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. I think CW may have learned it’s lesson with Smallville and really brought the grit of Green Arrow to the screen.

    • CW doesn’t do anything…it’s the WRITERS & ARROW IS AWESOME!!!!

      • CW just airs the shows hey have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CAST OR HOW THE STORY IS WRITTEN…GEEEZ THOUGHT EVERYONE HAD SOME COMMON SENSE AND WOULD KNOW THAT! I LOVE ARROW IT’S FANTASTIC!

        • I MEANT *THEY* (NOT HEY) HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CAST OR HOW THE STORY IS WRITTEN…

  2. please..best idea ever.

  3. I think he’s a great character and very under appreciated. I’m looking forward to it

  4. Green arrow yes.. but CW?? Keep your money you corporate scumbags

  5. If they do it right and portray Oli like a edgy bad ass that doesnt play by the rules then this show could be a hit. but CW isnt my cup of tea for watching good super hero shows. But you know what they say, dont knock it till you try it.

  6. bad idea to get rid of the superpowers and change the names of star city and dinah lance. but will definently watch this show

  7. I sooooooooooo think this would make for the best show ever! course I’m biased because Green Arrow is my All Time favorite Hero

  8. I can not wait. I would love green arrow. We really miss smallville.

  9. dear friends why only cw channel we don’t get that channel on dish network that is the reason we missed it cw is a okay channel when i can get it with my antenna depends on the weather of course so would yaw maybe think about putting it on channel [6] maybe please so we can watch it when it comes on. sincerely virginia
