Re: Green Arrow (CW)

http://www.ksitetv.com/10888/david-n...-direct-arrow/

David Nutter, who directed the pilot episodes of Smallville, Supernatural, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and more, all of which went to series, is “expected to direct” The CW’s Green Arrow pilot, Arrow...
Should be okay with Nutter. About Black Canary JD...I wouldn't want to see her right away or as a regular to be honest.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Why call it "Arrow"? Way to hide the show from casual viewers who might actually recognize a show called "Green Arrow" from the comic books and who don't frequent sites like this. Is it possible the CW is telegraphic the fact that a "Green Arrow" movie is in the works? Maybe. Or maybe the fact some feel Green Lantern bombed has made "Green" a no-no word? I don't get it.

I don't have high hopes. Not that I expect a show to be about an archer in tights running around the place, but Smallville's take was really disappointing. Oliver Queen, remember, is DC's version of Tony Stark, and if the show doesn't follow through, it's going to be pretty weak. I hope they include Black Canary because that's like doing Superman without Lois.

I'm doing a though at them remaking Beauty and the Beast as a cop show (I'm sorry - "procedural"). Apparently it's not simply a new take on the fairy tale but an actual remake of the TV series from the 1980s. Can you say Grimm rip-off?

I believe there's one of each, a severe re-imagining of the overall product and a remake of the TV Series

Or maybe they just want to avoid confusion with Green Lantern and The Green Hornet . . . which is a real problem where general audiences are concerned. I can testify that my own next-door door neighbor couldn't keep Green Lantern, Green Hornet, and Green Arrow straight.

He actually rented a GREEN LANTERN cartoon thinking it was the Seth Rogan comedy version of THE GREEN HORNET . . . .

ABC might be doing a series based on the original fairy tale but there's been no pilot news about it...

I bet he mixes up green apples and green beans at the store, too.

No. Tony Stark is Marvel's version of Batman. Oliver Queen, who was created 22 years before Iron Man, is DC's knock-off of Batman.

Like Smallville did for 3.5 years when the show was surprisingly popular with viewers and fans?

I went to see The Muppets thinking it was going to be Green Lantern. Boy, was I surprised.

A failed gag, clearly. However, Green Arrow, for the first 30 years or so, was a poor-man's Batman down to the fact that he even had an Arrow-Cave and an Arrow-Car. It wasn't until the early 1970s that GA was revamped into a social crusader.

Rich guy with a young ward. Arrow Cave. Arrow Car. Do the math.

Most comics companies weren't shy about even ripping themselves off.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Well then, perhaps that's my failing. The social crusader Green Arrow that went road tripping across America with Hal Jordan is the incarnation of the character that I'm most familiar with.
