The CW Has The Green Arrow In Its Sights

14 Jan

This is officially the Year Of The Super Hero. With a summer full of caped crusaders (The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spiderman, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) the fall may have some vigilante justice of its own. The CW is about to order a pilot for Arrow, about the arrow toting Justice League member Green Arrow. I never through I’d write the word “arrow” that many times in one sentence.

Unfortunately, Justin Hartley isn't connected to the project yet. Sadfaces all around.

The CW has been woefully lacking in the superhero department since Clark Kent finally donned his suit and brought Smallville to an end. The network has already tried out the Green Arrow; Oliver Queen and his alter ego starred in 72 episodes of the origins story.

CW president Mark Pedowitz has been interested in developing a followup show since the summer, saying, “We’re looking next year to do a superhero show if the right superhero comes to be.” And Green Arrow seems to be Mr. Right.  David Nutter (Entourage, The X-Files) is rumored to direct according to DeadlineGreen Lantern co-writers Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim will write and executive produce with Andrew Kreisberg of Fringe and the ratings gem of the CW crown, The Vampire Diaries.
