Did the CW Hit the Bullseye? You be the Critic Courtesy of this First Look at Stephen Amell’s ARROW Costume

Move over Justin Hartley, there’s a new hooded vigilante in town with an affinity for the color green! His name is Stephen Amell and judging from this just released photo from the CW’s much-anticipated GREEN ARROW reboot appropriately titled ARROW, he’s not messing around.

According to ARROW pilot director/executive producer David Nutter, “When I directed the pilot for SMALLVILLE, I knew that making Clark Kent relatable would be the key to audiences believing in him as a hero. ARROW is a different show — darker and harder-edged — but it’s the same core idea. We’re creating a real, believable world in which Oliver Queen can do incredible things. Colleen Atwood’s great work on the Arrow costume reflects that effort.”

According to us, Oliver Queen may-or-may-not have spent a little too much time obsessing over Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) Either way — should the pilot which is currently shooting in and about the beautiful Vancouver British Columbia area get picked up to series — we’re in.

    Actually I really really like it! It’s just how I picture green arrow from reading the comics, and as a fan of Nolan’s Batman, I’m all in for a dark superhero tv show. And wjile not amazing this is definitely a huge step up from the costumes from Wonder Woman and The Cape…
