    Are China White, Deadshot, and Deathstroke only going one off characters? I had figured either one of, or all of them would be recurring bad guys.

    So are you guys saying GA won't be waiting until the series finale in season ten to finally put on the suit? :p

    Well, it's not like Warners will ever be doing a movie about Huntress...:rommie:

    I could see a Birds of Prey movie. Hell, that would make a pretty damn good TV series too.

    I was thinking about the cw first look article.

    'Arrow" is not about justice or even vengeance.

    He's just compelled to hunt shit.

    Hunt shit to death.

    Driven.

    BY A DARK PASSENGER!

    Oh, my.

    Doesn't that sound familiar?

    This is sounding better than I expected.

    Correct, she is so obscure I doubt that any Batman reboot would ever use her. If they want a female vigilante they would choose Batgirl or Batwoman.

    In the final episode of green arrow, if she becomes the love angle protagonist, we discover that huntress had been adopted as a baby and that her real name has always been Helena Wayne.

    I'm honestly amazed how much stuff they actually appear to be taking from the comics. I wasn't expecting anywhere near this kind of connection to the comics when this was first announced.

    Me neither. But it helps that executive producer Marc Guggenheim wrote for DC before this. That may be a first for a live action show. We had comic writers write a few episodes, but never in such important producing role from its inception.

    I am happy in particular with the Royal Flush Gang. Its such a simple concept in terms of playing card theme for criminals. Anyone who never heard of the comic characters will get it. Even the name, being a gang is very modern and timeless sounding.

    In addition to writing and/or co-writing four episodes, Geoff Johns was heavily involved on Blade: The Series.

    I'm disappointed I can't make fun of this show for its main character never putting on his superhero suit. :(

    ^Perhaps you will get lucky and he will lose his ability to shoot arrows every other episode.

    Never heard of it....


    Actually I did. But it was such a short run and so low profile I did not count it.

    I guarantee there will be people unfamiliar with the characters that will think it's a rip on the end of Batman Begins and the "calling card"

    What about The Walking Dead? The Graphic Novelist has been heavily involved since Day 1, and it's starting it's 3rd Season in a few weeks

    Okay, Superhero series is what I meant.

    While I aware of Blade and have seen very little of Walking Dead. I am not a fan of horror. I would not group this with either of those.

    Oh, OK, yea, Superhero Live Action Series narrows it down alot more than Comics Live Action Series

    Fuck that.

    My interest in this show just dropped another notch.

    If there's even a remote chance that I'll have to subscribe to the digital comic to get the whole story of what's going on in the show, then I may as well not even invest any time in watching it at all.
