For all the Mike Grell/Dark Green Knight stuff, it looks like he'll also have a few
gadget arrows, which is a plus, but there is no Black Canary, which is a minus.

Green Arrow has been dark and emo for the last decade.
 
2012-06-07 09:59:39 AM  
Still think they should have did a spin off from Smallville.

I really liked the way they portrayed GA in Justice League Unlimited. It was very close to the character I remember from reading from the Green Lantern/Green Arrow comics in the 70s and early 80s, and pretty atypical for the genre.
 
2012-06-07 11:32:14 AM  
I thought you loved me but it seems you don't care.
 
2012-06-07 11:45:48 AM  
I was hopeful for an older Green Arrow:

That movie would make billions.

Started off interesting, turned into the usual crap at the end.

Actually, Katie Cassidy is playing Black Canary.

/Deathstroke!

You'd be emo too if your super power was shooting a bow and arrow. To add insult to injury, other archers get movies like The Hunger Games and The Avengers. He got a few guest spots in Smallville. Poor bastard.
 
2012-06-07 11:50:08 AM  
At least they don't have him using a wheelie bow, but Green Arrow *SHOULD* be using a Howard Hill-style longbow instead of a recurve bow.

That's my super power, and I'm not emo. Then again, I'm not *THAT* good either.
 
2012-06-07 11:51:22 AM  
Green Arrow vs. Slade? That could be pretty boss. Other than that, I'm not really sold on it. If you wanted to do a cheap, low tech crime/super hero drama, use the Rene Montoya version of the Question and use plots from Gotham Central. You could spin Batwoman out of it.
 
2012-06-07 11:55:31 AM  
I'll check it out, but won't get my hopes up.

Yeah but you're not surrounded by flying aliens, billionaire ninja detectives and super human Amazons. Even the guy who talks to fish laughs at him behind his back.

Ollie is also a billionaire ninja detective. He just chose to limit his weaponry because he's lazy or something.

Whoa! Looks pretty badass. And he has experience as a gadget-using crime fighter who's also a suave ladykiller. And since it's gonna be an older Ollie, you can have Connor too.

The Brosman is perfect for it.

Why do you hate wheelie bows so much. I love my Compound Bow. Think they are far more interesting to look at, and as far as the screen goes I prefer this:

Green elf shot the food.

Shoot I quoted the wrong line. I was responding to this actually:

"At least they don't have him using a wheelie bow, but Green Arrow *SHOULD* be using a Howard Hill-style longbow instead of a recurve bow."

Whoah! Why does Brosnan have the ridiculous but amazing Errol-Flynn look about him? Please tell me it's for a movie that isn't Percy Jackson!
 
2012-06-07 12:27:33 PM  
At least he's not some gay, transgender, cross dressing pedo like that other green guy

Huh. I was never much of a DC fan, and didn't recognize 'Laurel Lance' as a name.

I stand corrected, though there is nothing in the trailer to indicate that she was/is The Black Canary.

Actually, he has to wait until Batman does something original... Then Green Arrow copies it.

There'd better be a boxing-glove-arrow in the pilot, by God.

I'll watch it. Hope the boxing glove arrow makes an appearance.

Not that compelling of a trailer but I'll check it out anyway.

No, I like a simple stick and string.

I have a feeling this whole superhero business coincided with Americans' increased fear of foreigners and need to have a guarantee that theyll dominate the enemy with supernatural powers

How's that working for you?
 
2012-06-07 12:58:28 PM  
Green Arrow should be a forgotten, public domain superhero like the Spirit of 76 and Black Terror.

Actually, the golden age blooming of super hero comics is more about the absence of paternal figures due to the war than anything else.

In pre-We're complete, uncreative whores thanks to Didio and Johns DC Continuity, the Black Canary was Dinah Laurel Lance.

What's up with the guy club? Can't we have a show based on the females?!

I'm thinking Zatanna:

caveman fist bump.

compounds are cool and all but there's no better reward that game taking with a set of tools you crafted entirely with your own hands.

/yes, i even make my own arrowheads, both steel and stone.

2012-06-07 01:15:20 PM  
I never really got Green Arrow. Tell me if I'm misunderstanding the characterization here. He's a

radical-leftist ...billionaire,

anarchist... politician,

vigilante... outlaw,

etc. etc.? And I know that every comic book superhero eventually does everything, but with this guy they all seem to be going on at once.

I know the idea was to have a superhero who wasn't basically just 100% fascist-authoritarian or 100% loner/anti-hero. I think the idea was for him to be a "community organizer" with ninja skillz, which actually might have been pretty interesting. But it seems like the real political message here is that if you don't have a billion dollars for boxing-glove-arrow R&D, you can just suck it and let Superman tell you what's best for your poor ass.
 
2012-06-07 01:27:05 PM  

semiotix: I never really got Green Arrow.


Started as pretty much a Batman clone and wealth finances the super-hero.

Became a leftist counter to authoritarian spacecop Green Lantern when DC tried to catch up to Marvel in appealing to older readers in what were, for the time and medium, shockingly political stories.

Anti-authority, but anarchist? Really?

Not familiar with his stab at politics(in comics) but sure, why not?

Vigiliantes ARE outlaws. By definition.

It's the gritty, dark, 90s thing to do.
 
2012-06-07 02:08:31 PM  
We had Green Arrow on Smallville for 5 seasons.. he was as important as Clark was too. Why are they making a Green Arrow series?

What a waste.

I actually kinda liked Birds of Prey. It wasn't true to the comic, but it had a decent feel to it, overall.

/It's on DVD
//Cheap, too.
