Yeah, this Green Arrow has to be the JLU version, otherwise it will probably flop.
My guess is you guys never read the comics, otherwise you'd know the JLU version is basically the comics version. Post-revamp, that is.

Yes, originally Ollie Queen was a poor Batman knock-off, but the revamp by Denny O'Neil & Neal Adams, turning him into a left-wing bleeding heart playing the conscience of the larger than life heroes of the DCU made him one of the most interesting characters in superhero fiction.
And the 52 revamp seems to have turned him straight back into a poor man's Batman.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

it could actually be pretty good tv if its handled right...

the original comic series where Ollie teamed up with Hal for the Brave and the Bold arc, with his ward Speedy becoming a cocain addict shortly after... those are the sorts of storylines i would love to see the show tackle properly...

I think Speedy was hooked on heroin, not cocaine.

I'm surprised that they didn't just make this a Smallville spin-off and get Hartley back. Having said that, I can see the attraction for a totally new slate.

Wonder if this means that the Supermax GA movie is dead?
Making it a Smallville spin-off would likely carry with it a lot of weight they'd have to deal with. The first being GA's relationship with Chloe, Queen's close friendship with Clark/Superman and, of course, dealing with Superman if even only in the background.

Indeed. Weren't Oliver and Chloe actually married by the end of the series? And you'd be constantly be running into the problem of "well, why doesn't he just get on the phone and call Clark . . . or Aquaman or Black Canary or Cyborg or Zatanna or Martian Manhunter . . . ?"

Better to start fresh, unencumbered by ten years of SMALLVILLE continuity.

This will probably get a pilot order, but I was really hoping to see Deadman move forward out of development hell.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I've enjoyed stories I've seen with GA, so I'll be keeping an eye on this. My only real familiarity with the character comes from Smallville, and a couple of anmiated appearances, but I do plan on checking some of his comics when I go back to reading DC stuff.

Really?! I actually had high hopes for that, with Dan Jurgens doing it. If that's the case, my disappointment in the New 52 is complete. Not that I had hopes of it being fantastic, but they pretty much screwed up completely.



Oh, well. At least The Flash turned out readable. For now.

Yep, he runs a massive multinational that rivals Wayne Enterprises and he runs around using lots of high-tech gadgets while his support team keep an eye on him from the arrow-cave (it's not actually called that but it might as well be).

Andrew Kreisberg was responsible for the second-worst run on Green Arrow after Judd Winnick, so I am not exactly excited.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

OMG....IS THERE SOME FRAKING REASON THAT THEY CANNOT SIMPLY MAKE A NIGHTWING SERIES!

Nightwing would be the ideal character for the CW. He's rich, insanely good-looking, with a troubled background, a complicated family situation, bizarre love life and cool friends. He'd be perfect for that network. Hell a show based on the New Teen Titans...former sidekicks that have grown up...would work well. Yet they insist on warping other less suitable caracters for that network. Why?

There has to be some reason why that character gets no love outside of the comics and an occasional appearance in the animated shows. He never gets used.

Cool. It'll be interesting to see who they cast as Olly, and what kind of a supporting cast they bring in. Would Black Canary automatically be included with rights for GA, or would she be her own separate thing?
