First Look at CW’s “Arrow’s” Green Arrow

Warner Bros. has released the first image from its upcoming CW series “Arrow,” based on the DC Comics character, Green Arrow. Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen, a former-billionaire playboy embarking on a career of vigilantism after spending time stranded on a desert island for five years. The re-imagined character is being brought to the small screen by “Green Lantern” screenwriters Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim and “Fringe” co-executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. David Nutter, who helmed the pilots of “Smallville” and “Supernatural,” will direct, and the hero’s costume is designed by three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood.

“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,” Nutter said in text accompanying the image. “”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.”
