The void left by Smallville might actually get filled.
The first image of Stephen Amell (Private Practice) as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in the CW’s Arrow has surfaced.
It certainly evokes the “darker and harder-edged” tone that the producers have set their sights on.
The suit, designed by three-time Oscar-winning designer Colleen Atwood, appears to include some elements from Justin Hartley’s Smallville costume, while at the same time evoking the Green Arrow of the comics. Gone is the compound bow, thankfully. And is that a goatee I see? Finally!
Arrow is still only slated for production as a pilot, but we shall wait and see if it goes the way of Wonder Woman *shudder*.
