I wonder what direction they'll take it.

Will they even bother with any auditions for the lead???

Agreed. I'm actually shocked they didn't just spin Hartley out oof Smallville.

.....but not in costume. And if he's IN costume, he'll be either far, far away or so close you see nothing.

Heck, I'll save you and the show people some money, I'll give you a $ to rent Superman Returns. As you're watching Green Arrow, just skip to the dvd then back to the show, repeat when necessary.

In other words, in an attempt to get a wider audience, its going to "modernize" the Green Arrow concept to the point where even comic fans won't like it. Maybe it will work. It worked for Smallville somehow.

character was introduced on The CW's "Smallville" in 2006, with actor Justin Hartley appearing as a series regular from 2008 until its end in 2011. [...] Hartley isn't attached to the new project.
Hmm... they could have done worse than get Hartley back. We'll see who they get, no doubt he'll be compared to Justin.

I'd watch this....I'd be happy seeing them do Ollie in Star City as opposed to Metropolis.

Amell is Green Arrow

jafabian January 31st, 2012 09:21 PM

Was hoping it would be Hartley but doesn't surprise me the studio went with someone else.

thunderdude February 1st, 2012 02:55 PM

I wonder if they even offered it to Hartley. Of course I could make the obvious joke about letting him guest star as Aquaman;)

Maybe the decision is to set clear distance between this series and Smallville?

That would be my thinking; that they want to do a production without being saddled with another productions continuity.

jafabian February 2nd, 2012 12:49 PM

IMO, using Hartley in the role doesn't obligate them to use Smallville continuity. Heck, Smallville barely followed it's own established continuity. Water under the bridge at this point though.
