New ‘Arrow’ Clip Reveals Darker Take on Green Arrow Character


The premiere of CW’s new superhero thriller Arrow may still be a few weeks away, but already enthusiastic comic book fans are all a quiver (pun intended) with anticipation to watch the emerald archer take aim at crime. In preparation for its new superhero series, the CW has released an exhilarating new promo that shows the vigilante known as Arrow introducing some thugs to the pointy end of a longbow.

Earlier this year, Arrow writers and executive producers Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern) assured viewers a darker and edgier series by stepping away from some classic comic book elements in favor or more real-world components – and judging by this new promo, they kept that promise. While it’s not 100% clear, it sure looks like the new vigilante of Starling City will do anything to clean up his streets – including the use of lethal force.

Based on the DC Comics superhero Green Arrow, Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, whose perfect pampered life is forever altered when he is stranded on a mysterious island off the South Pacific, following a yacht crash. Returning after five years lost at sea, Oliver’s once carefree existence has been sharpened with the new purpose of eliminating crime in his home city.

Despite the Green Arrow roots, this version of the character appears to be taking on elements of another popular DC hero – Batman – by ditching the goofy trick-arrows and witty puns, and by pushing the character deeper into the shadows.

The DC comic book version of Green Arrow

While Batman won’t likely be swinging into Starling City during this season of Arrow, the series will however feature many well-known (and not so well-known) DC Comics characters – including Deadshot, The Huntress and Deathstroke the Terminator. Berlanti and Guggenheim also claim that Arrow will steer clear of the whole “super powers” component (at least for now), so most of the comic book characters who Arrow will be encountering this season will either be known for their acute martial arts skill, or will have any super power they possess in the comics written out.
