Here’s your first look at The CW’s previously announced TV series based on the Emerald Archer himself, titled simply Arrow. The show will star Stephen Amell (Private Practice, Hung) in the lead role, which definitely seems to be yet another dark, brooding take on a superhero. The costume, designed by Colleen Atwood (Alice in Wonderland), seems like an interesting, modern update, but come on… enough with the hoods, people!
Arrow is being written by Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern) and it “centers on former billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Amell) who, after being marooned for five years on a remote island, returns with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime.” It hasn’t officially been picked up yet, and based on the low success rate of recent superhero shows, it might be a long shot. What do you think, does Arrow have what it takes? Check out a larger version of the image after the jump.
