First look at the Green Arrow costume for the CW's pilot Arrow
The first shot of Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in the CW's new pilot for ARROW was revealed today and it's not too shabby. Designed by Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, who recently worked on SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, the design is more in line with the comic character and less like the version portrayed on SMALLVILLE.
Take a look:
Looks pretty good, but I'll still need to see a promo that knocks my socks off before I buy into this one. Anyone remember that AQUAMAN pilot with Justin Hartley (who played Green Arrow in SMALLVILLE as well...got all that?) and Ving Rhames? Yeah, nobody does. It's definitely a risky move, tackling another superhero property since SMALLVILLE ran its course (I'd still rather see a Superman show with Tom Welling, but whatever).
David Nutter, the director/executive producer of ARROW, had this to say about his version of Oliver Queen:
“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.”
Here's a bare-bones synopsis:
After being marooned for five years on a remote island, former billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime.
CW has yet to announce a premiere date for the pilot, but expect it soon.
