The CW has released their first pic of Green Arrow actor Stephen Amell in costume from the pilot for Arrow via Deadline.com. And, unlike this time last year when Wonder Woman’s look from her doomed pilot was released, I don’t think anyone will be complaining this time about the costume. It looks pretty spot on, even if it is only from an angle. The suit was designed by Oscar-winning costume designer and frequent Tim Burton collaborator Colleen Atwood, so I’d hope it would look decent, as opposed to Wonder Woman’s outfit, which was designed at Party City.
The official synopsis for the series goes like this: “Billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Amell) who, after being marooned for five years on a remote island, returns with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime.” That too, sounds about right. Maybe this series won’t suck? Or is that hoping for too much?
Now, lets hope they don’t screw up Black Canary when she shows up.
