i find it counter-intuitive that DC-Warners want to distance themselves from one of the few things that's worked for them in greater media. Smallville ran for 10 seasons. kinda good by most standards. it'd be like wanting to get distance on the Batman movies.

but then DC does seem to be the Bizarro-Marvel when it comes to this stuff. Marvel makes it look so easy and pretty much makes movies that are better than comics, painfully evidenced when comics conform with the movies and don't do it as well when competing that way.

but this GA project.... from the writers of the GL movie--um. and with Andrew Kriesberg--who's GA run in the comics was not what you might call well-received.

Superman Returns, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow?

I suspect IF they used the same actor from Smallville in the same role, even with a whole new continuity , then WB would OWE someone from Smallville some $$$.

New Actor means no way for a legal claim.

That's a pretty cool photo. That could work. The hardest thing with superhero tv/film is getting a outfit that translates into the real world. That one does. Still not convinced by Captain America's helmet in the new film. They pretty much avoided it in the first one but this one looks wrong.

Costume looks good, but definitely not a fan of the name shortening.

You want realistic? Just show people around the world dubbing this "mysterious archer" dude "The Green Arrow" all over the internet and on television through some eye witness reports.

Most comic book heroes don't name themselves. It's usually established that someone in the general public comes up with something to call these mysterious characters by that eventually catches on with everyone else.

Exactly! Think about the phrase "Dont' taze me bro" and then apply that to a meld of a criminal calling him "that Big GREEN ARROW Guy" with massive you tube/facebook hits.

Super Hero code names made easy thanks to the prevelance of Intenet memes!

Default (GREEN) "ARROW" Gets Picked Up By The CW

GREEN ARROW Gets Series Order on CW

Some names have been changed but the premise remains the same, unless in the Nu52 Oliver's mother was responsible for his "violent shipwreck".

I suppose this means they won't be cancelling the comic for a while yet.

Laurel Lance? That sounds like one of Superman's girlfriends.

As I said on another forum, I'll give it a shot. But considering the shows the CW has picked up lately, not counting Nikita, my expectations are low.

I'm excited. Nikita is fantastic and I'm pleasantly surprised that it got picked up. CW has a bad rep but whether most people think their aimed at teenage girls or what not they actually tend to have more genre shows and variety than the major networks IMO who mostly just want to ram procedural cop shows down everyone's throat.

Happy that something live action not involving the Bat or the Red S is coming. I don't get why Warners has ceded the theaters to Marvel. Maybe we can get excited about TV.

But I can't say I expect this to be very good, given that the creative talents involved didn't do so well as comic book writers.

Still, as a diehard DC fan, I will be there. And Katie Cassidy was pretty good on SPN.

Is it this one? I ask because I didn't see one on that page. Some places do confound my PS3 though, so apologies if this is just reposting.
