I was just thinking that the Question appearing would really fit in on this show.

If the Huntress is in the show they could play it as a nod to the DCAU and have Huntress and Question as a duo/couple.


Do we know if superpowers exist in this universe? Or is it like the Dark Knight universe where powers don't exist?

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

It would open this show right up if Black Adam or the Reverse Flash shows up, maybe Sinestro... By accessing the rogues galleries of other heroes from the JLA, it subtlety admits that these criminal's brightly clad super powered Nemeses also exist too, which means that the JLA is on the horizon too in one form or another.

No indication so far, but they seem to be keeping to non-powered villains if that's any indication. Doesn't mean powers couldn't be introduced at a later point.

They may name drop a super powered character long before we see one. "Superman doesn't have to put up with this".

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I liked the line in Lois and Clark after the first villain noticed the effect Kryptonite had on him: "What's Superman without Superpowers? BATMAN! BWAHAHAHA!"

I've read several interviews with the producers and they've said that superpowers don't exist in the Arrowverse.

Someone built a Temple of the Five in Starling City...

They say that now.

But come sweeps, are they going to be so brave?

So...

A forced confession while been shot arrows by a maniac that killed or injured several people?

Yes, that is going to hold in court (?).
Actually if a cop had forced the confession it's not admissible but the police getting the confession from a non police third party often is.
People just assume the police can't use that kind of information.

I can live with the non power angle for now, plenty of non powered baddies and good guys could appear. Captain Boomerang would be near the top of my list.

Admissible or not (and I question its admissibility as well since it was given under duress), no defense attorney worth his or her salt wouldn't tear that confession to shreds in court. And big time corporate crime boss Captain Kelly from BSG guy doesn't strike me as the type to hire a bargain basement defense team.

It's all a moot point in these superhero stories, though, where due process and proper legal procedures fly out the window until the moment you want to make a story about them so the bad guy can get off (see: Lex Luthor in Superman Returns for one example).

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Shouldn't they want to go to jail so that Green Arrow doesn't murder them in their sleep?

I just saw that comment. It's funny, I said the same thing to my wife at the beginning of the episode and sure enough...

That would be awesome. I loved the Question back in the 80s.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I wasn't terribly impressed with the first episode, but the second one really did it for me. I was impressed with the casting from the get-go, but now the characters seem more interesting and the writing has some substance, more than I was expecting anyway. Looks like the show has come together pretty well and pretty quickly. It's probably my favorite new show of the season.

Smallville? The teen show that just happened to use the occasional comic character to justify the name?
Smallville went full out with the comic book stuff eventually, moreso than any televised version of Superman that I can remember. I can see the same thing happening with Arrow if it lasts long enough.

Deathstroke and now The Huntress? They're already going all out. Just found this article on Jessica De Gouw.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I'm liking this series so far. I wasn't sure if I'd like it when it was first announced, but the first two episodes have been good. I'm not a huge fan of Green Arrow acting like the Punisher, though. It really makes Dinah's (I'm not calling her Laurel) dad completely justified in getting this green murderer off the street. Usually, the cop trying to stop the vigilante in stuff like this is trying to stop them for being outside the law, but you're still cheering for the vigilante and hoping the cop doesn't catch him. In this, it makes total sense for this cop to spend a lot of time trying to get GA. Its not an obsession or vendetta or something, GA's a cold blooded murderer. I'm not a fan of heroes killing the criminals they hunt. Still, I'm enjoying GA, I just wish he was a bit less bloodthirsty.
