Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Agreed. Sticking rigidly to their "no tights, no flights" after say season 6 was just stubborn pride. Other heroes were appearing he should've felt comfortable doing so + at that point they weren't spending much time in Smallville anyway. They were early 20-somethings and it would've been prime to show the transference of boy to man but no they drug it out.

That's what I always assumed, so I eschewed it. I take it that's not the case?

He never wears the suit, right?
Did you not bother reading the rest of my post? Or did you just cut it off so you could make a subtle drive-by slam?

I asked a question. An honest one. I was respectful of your opinion and pursued it. Last fucking time I make that mistake.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I answered your question in the initial post. It was the part you cut off when quoting.

Given your reputation of previous drive-bys and utter disregard for anything that doesn't meet your high expectations, it sure as hell didn't come across as honest nor respectful.

Not until the final moments of the final episode.

But Green Arrow, Black Canary, Zatanna, Aquaman, Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad, Mera, Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Star-Girl, and other DC characters all wore their traditional costumes or variants thereoff.

(Which made it kind of odd that Clark resisted wearing wearing a costume for so long, but, oh well, the show was called SMALLVILLE, not SUPERMAN.)
Well, he did wear a "costume" of sorts. Most of the time when acting as a super-hero he'd dress in Superman's colors (usually a blue plaid shirt and a red jacket leading to him being called the Red-Blue Blur) then in the 8th or 9th season he actually had a costume he'd wear when acting as a hero but this one being an all-black suit with a cape-like trench coat and the "S-Shield" on his shirt (now he was called "The Blur.")

So, in a sense, he wore a "costume" and for all intents and purposes was a "costumed hero" like the others he just didn't wear a costume that stood him out as being Superman (unlike the others who had taken on their DC personas/names.)

He also had a spiffed up version of his red/blue costume in the last season with the \S/ on it.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Some hunky looking guy gets the lead role.

In a potentially star-making turn, Amell has been cast in the title role on the CW pilot Arrow. In the Warner Bros. TV project, described as a modern retelling of the story of DC Comics character Green Arrow, he will play the vigilante superhero who fights crime using archery, martial arts and technology under his secret identity as Oliver Queen, a wealthy playboy and billionaire industrialist-turned-outspoken politician in Star City.

You know, if you had told me decades ago, that someday two different actors would have played Green Arrow on TV, I would have never believed it!

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I need to hit IMDB and see who he's been on Vampire Diaries. I don't instantly recognize him. Is it the shaved head throwing me off?

I hope he gets to have a beard. It suits him and the character.
