Justin Hartley will also be on the CW next season. He's playing one of the young doctors in Emily Owens, M.D..

Yeah, you'd think they'd go with an already established, and I believe quite popular version of the character instead of starting from scratch.

Too much baggage and continuity. Wasn't Oliver actually married to Chloe by the end of Smallville? So you'd have to explain where Allison Mack is and why Oliver has a new love interest. Plus, you'd have fans constantly wondering when Clark or Lex or the rest of the Super Friends gang were going to show up.

Better to start over with a clean slate.

Not that much a stretch. DC and Marvel have been making heavy use of alternate realities for decades. So, this new one fits in a lot better than Trek09 or nuBSG.

If Arrow is stuck fighting street level crime or mob bosses for a season then this show will fail. Ollie is not known for his extensive rougues gallery so this would be a great opportunity to perhaps introduce the League Of Assassins or something similiar to expand the Arrows world.

I can definitely understand starting over. Too much baggage from Smallville. Not to mention the episode where Ollie was dressed as a showgirl is best forgotten! It's better to start over.

Though I have no idea why they're not calling him Green Arrow. He's a well-established superhero...you don't change his name. Arrow by itself sounds dumb...you need the full name for it to sound better. Also, why Starling City and not Star City?

To avoid confusion with Green Lantern and Green Hornet? That sounds silly to us lifelong comix fans, but, trust me, my own neighbors can't keep them straight. "Well-established" is a relative term.

And do know that he's not called "Green Arrow" in the show? Maybe "Arrow" is just the title.

I guess I can see that.
I'm wondering if the more realistic take on the mythos means Dinah/Laurel won't have her Canary Cry or the black leather and fishnets?

Trailer looks interesting, i will give it a shot, glad there is no smallville influence, atleast it wont take 10 seasons of deciding if he should don the hood and the bow!

Looks like Ollie is shaking up in the Luthor mansion again.

Got giddy when I saw Deathstroke's mask with an arrow through it near the end of the trailer.

Okay, it doesn't look like a Batman Begins clone anymore.

yeah why did they do that? I know it was something else before it was the Luthor Mansion, but really the show should be looking to set its own tone, it wont do that reusing elements of Smallville.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I got so disconnected from Smallville that if no one had said it was Luthor's place I wouldn't have known.
However, now that I know I don't guess it bothers me.

I'll try this out for a few episodes time permitting.
