The CW/Warner Bros. has released your first official look at star Stephen Amell in full costume as Green Arrow from their upcoming superhero TV show “Arrow”.
First up, good to see they’re keeping with the traditional bow and arrow set-up, and not have him running around with some high-tech bow or crossbow doohickey. The green in the uniform is also pleasing, as it seems to indicate “Arrow” will still be about Green Arrow, and that they haven’t gotten completely rid of that part of the character yet (which, yeah, was something I had feared).
Amell stars as Oliver Queen, aka the Green Arrow on the show. Queen is a rich billionaire Playboy who, after a little run-in on a yacht and an island leaves him stranded from civilization for years, returns home as a vigilante superhero determined to make up for his past sins and help the downtrodden. And if that sounds like a show you might want to keep track of, feel free to head over to our Arrow: The TV Series fansite for more information, details, and goodies.
The cast also includes Katie Cassidy, Willa Holland, Paul Blackthorne, Jamey Sheridan, Colin Salmon, Susanna Thompson, Annie Ilonzeh, and David Ramsey.
