WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FIRST LOOK AT THE CW'S THE GREEN ARROW?
Included along with the press release, Executive Producer David Nutter says:
“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. 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. [Costume designer] Colleen Atwood’s great work on the Arrow costume reflects that effort.”
The official tagline for the series, meanwhile, reads:
After being marooned for five years on a remote island, former billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime.
