New arrow details:
http://theouthousers.com/podcasts/why-i-love-comics/20090.html
Speaking to The Outhousers in a podcast, writer Marc Guggenheim talks in detail about his new CW show Arrow and what fans should expect---

On whether that's indeed Deathstroke's mask in the teaser trailer and if we can expect him to show up in the series?
Marc Guggenheim : That is most definitely the mask. I would encourage people to watch the show, particularly watch future episodes.

Will the show be similar in tone to Smallville?
MG: This is a brand new take. Smallville was an amazing show, it was an incredible vision of Superman and a lot of other DC superheroes including Green Arrow. This is a different take. This is taking Green Arrow from the ground up and making him the center of a show and we have to change the tone to fit the character. [The show] will be much more grounded, more realistic because he's a more realistic superhero than Superman, he doesn't fly, he doesn't have x-ray vision, he doesn't have super powers and our show reflects that.

It shares similarities with Smallville in so far that it's produced by Warner Bros., it's on the CW, David Nutter directed the pilot, Glen Winter was D.P. on Smallville, it shares certain talent. But apart from that it is a new and completely different kind of show. How many episodes will the show have in its first season?
MG: We got picked up for 13 episodes. The standard [network] order is pilot +12 and that's what we're writing towards. But we have plans for what episode 22 would be, what seasons 2 and 3 would be about and with any luck, we get to tell all those stories.

Who made the decision to change the name of Green Arrow's hometown to Starling City?
MG: Basically,the decision was made by me and my co-writers, Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, and was in keeping with the notion that the show should be grounded in the real world, as much as possible. And we asked ourselves the question, "Would there be a city named Star City, in this day and age?" It sounds very science-fiction and we made the decision that it took us out of the tone that we were trying to set with the book.

We thought about setting the show in Seattle because Seattle was where Mike Grell (Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters) had set his Green Arrow run but we steered away from that idea because we wanted a fictional city that we could blow up or get into its politics or create gangs, the artistic license a fictional city affords you. Originally it was going to be Starkton City but then to avoid comparisons with Iron Man, Andrew came up with Starling City and we all liked the name. If you check out the series, we tried to include references like Star City is what the tourist bureau calls the city.

Any other DC heroes appearing in the show? MG: I would say, watch very carefully and watch more than the pilot.

Tie In Comic for Comic Con Attendees:
http://www.tvguide.com/News/Arrow-Comic-Con-1049695.aspx
10 Page ARROW Comic Book Tie-In To Be Given Away At This Year's San Diego Comic-Con

The pilot episode of Arrow will premiere at this year's San Diego Comic-Con,and the have revealed plans to release a tie-in comic book at the event which fills in some of the gaps between that and the the second episode. Josh Wilding - 7/9/2012

"It's almost like a little mini episode after the pilot but before the next episode," Andrew Kreisberg (Fringe), who co-wrote the story with Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Geoff Johns, tells TV Guide. Mike Grell (Green Lantern/Green Arrow) pencilled the cover which you can see to the right, while the interiors have been handled by Omar Francia (Star Wars Legacy). "People tend to think of Green Arrow as a little more lighthearted and sort of a ladies man," adds Kreisberg. "And the Oliver Queen that we're doing a show about is a little bit more tortured, a little darker and lives more in the real world."

The story will apparently feature flashbacks showing more of Oliver Queen's past as a playboy before he became Green Arrow. There will also be a fair bit of time spent looking at Detectove Hilton; a character created by Kreisberg during his run on Green Arrow for DC Comics and played by 24 star Roger Cross in the pilot. They also go on to tease that Deathstroke (spotted in one of the trailers for the Arrow) will be involved somehow. "To us those 10 pages are canon," Kreisberg conludes, "and [for] anyone who grabs a copy: Hold onto it and as the series progresses, you'll appreciate it more and more."

Some reviews from pilot screening of Arrow during cw preview night at comic con:
http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/07/11/arrow-comic-con/
JULY 11, 2012 11:08 PM Comic-Con reviews The CW’s ‘Arrow’: Fans say… By James Hibberd

So what did the Comic-Con masses think of The CW’s Arrow?

Based on DC Comic’s Green Arrow,the new fall action-drama’s pilot seems ready-made for the fan event. The pilot just screened in Ballroom 20 and fans…

Pretty much loved it. The crowd not only applauded at the end of the episode, they applauded following a particularly intense fight scene. “It was fantastic,” says Gabi,35,visiting from England. Gabi enthused about star Stephen Amell despite having also loved Smallville‘s Green Arrow played by Justin Hartley. “[Amell's] really physical and his acting is great.”

“I really liked it; it had really good production values,” says Jamie,45,who watched the pilot along with Gabriel,12,who added: “It was really cool; it really kept you into it.”

“I don’t watch much TV,but I would watch this,” says Carissa,22,from Paso Robles,California.

Starring Amell as billionaire playboy Oliver Queen,the fast-paced origin story plays a bit like a TV-sized Batman Begins. Unlike The Dark Knight,however, this hero uses lethal force (a good thing —aiming arrows at bad guys’ legs every week would get silly pretty quick). The pilot also manages to tell a pretty ambitious story on a small-screen budget (some CGI-aided scenes involving a yacht at sea look a million times better than last year’s infamous Ringer pilot boat scene).

“It feels like a continuation of Smallville,only darker,it was really good,” says Alex,22,from San Diego.

A joke about the ending of ABC’s Lost went over particularly well in the room. So did this exchange where Queen —newly rescued after spending years isolated on an island —is told that a potential dating prospect “looks like the girl from Twilight.”

“What’s Twilight?” Queen asks.

“You’re so better off not knowing,” his friend replies.

Shelby,25,from Arkansas,says she really enjoyed Arrow,though had a slight criticism. “It was action packed,but if I’m being honest,it was just a tiny bit cheesy,” she says. Sounding just like an industry insider,Shelby then added: “I’m pretty sure it was just the pilot working the kinks out.”

SDCC2012:Arrow“Pilot”PreviewNightScreeningReview Jul 11th, 2012 @ 11:52 pm › Kroze Kresky ↓ Leave a comment
by Kroze Kresky, Media Editor

Ever since Smallville started branching out and including live action versions of the heroes of the DC Universe, fans of the hit television superhero show have clamored for a spinoff to feed their hunger of weekly comic book battles. One of the most requested spinoffs from fans was a series based off their favorite Robin Hood knockoff: Green Arrow. The CW heard these cries and have delivered…in a slightly different way than expected. Tonight at SDCC 2012, preview night attendees were treated to the pilot of Arrow! How does the Emerald Archer hold up in this new live action series?

Arrow goes back to square one with its brand new retelling of a playboy billionare and his fight against injustice (no, not THAT playboy billionare…) bringing a brand new version of Oliver Queen to the small screen. Stephen Amell (Private Practice, Heartland) brings a harsher, more rugged Ollie to life as we start with finding him surviving on a deserted island off in the middle of nowhere. Being rescued as the show begins, we slowly learn through a series of flashbacks how Ollie ended up there. As he finds his way back home, we find out in a way of how much he has changed being stranded on the island reconnecting with his family and friends. Secretly Ollie begins training on his own to take down some of the most corrupt business men in the city with his new skill set he gained while away.

If this sounds much like Batman Begins, well it does borrow a lot of cues from Nolan’s revisioning of a classic hero into a darker direction. But when it comes to Arrow, it works to the show’s advantage contrasting the more lighter take on superheroes we got from Smallville. Granted purests may nitpick over the such small (and weird) changes such as Star City being renamed to Starling City, and Dinah “Laurel” Lance, but overall the pilot episode feels very solid and is enjoyable to all fans of the hero genre. Check out Arrow when it airs this fall on Wedensday nights on The CW!

ComicsOnline gives Arrow “Pilot” 4 out of 5 tennis balls shot out of air with arrows.

David nutter on arrow:
http://www.greenarrowtv.com/interview-legendary-director-david-nutter-talks-about-launching-arrow/11358
Interview: Legendary Director David Nutter Talks About Launching Arrow

CRAIG BYRNE

When word came down that David Nutter would be directing the pilot episode of Arrow, folks who had watched as other comics to TV projects had been developed that fizzled could breathe a sigh of relief.

The very successful director, who early in his career even directed for the syndicated Superboy series, is notable for helming pilots for many well-known shows, including Millennium, Smallville, Dark Angel, Roswell, The Mentalist, Supernatural, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. In all, 17 of Nutter’s 18 pilots have gone to series after successful first hours. Already, Nutter lists Arrow as one of his favorites.”I’ve done a lot of pilots, and none better than this. This really just turned out wonderfully, he says. “The actors and the writing on this are just so fantastic and so rich and so wealthy with great storytelling, smart storytelling, adult storytelling… it’s a very mature subject in some respects, and the way they treated this show, it’s not a situation where often times with comic book TV shows, this is not ‘the TV version of…’ This is big time movie stuff, and it looks like that as well. We have a lot of crew from the Smallville series working on it, so it’s going to have a lot of scope and expand upon that, and the actors… Stephen Amell, who plays the character of the Arrow, Oliver Queen… I’ve never worked with someone so initially talented with such great instinct. He’s really amazing. Katie Cassidy is tremendous. She plays Laurel Lance. There’s great drama, and her best stuff is yet to come, for sure,” he says.

Arrow starts with an opening sequence that evokes Andy Diggle and Jock’s Green Arrow Year One comic series, and Nutter says that similarity is “very much” intentional. “The entire sensibility of the show is really based on Green Arrow Year One. We kind of took it from that as our perspective, in some respects, and the look of that opening sequence is one that I wanted to really mix it up. I wanted to make you feel like you’re a part of it,” he says.

“I’m a big believer in emotion involving the audience. In some respect, it’s all about point of view,” Nutter continues. “It’s always about ‘I’ve got to get the audience to lean in and care.’ And also, too, it’s a situation where to do that, you have to create a world that’s real; a world that people can access and understand, and be something that they can relate to. You want to set up that world, and then you get them to care. Then you can throw the paranormal at them, or throw things at them that are actually strong, and it emotionally affects them. I think with respect to the opening, we didn’t have an island in the middle of the Pacific to shoot this, so it’s all about ‘what do we not see, and how do we best affect the audience and make them think that he’s very far away,’ and I think it worked very well.”

As we will see on the island, there are some callbacks to other DC Comics elements, but Nutter insists that when we do see them, they will be steeped in reality. “You will be seeing DC Universe characters and Green Arrow characters in the series for sure, but it’s really going to be a ‘peel of the onion’ situation, and you’ll see them in a realistic light. They’ll be real people. They won’t be walking in the episode in a crazy outfit or something. We want to make this as grounded as possible, and make it as believable as possible,” he says. He adds that no mandates or rules were set down from DC Comics or the parent studio. “I think that, with respect to Warner Bros. and DC together as a team, there were never any mandates. Their only rule was ‘how do you tell the best story?’ And Andrew Kreisberg, who was one of the creators, of course, he wrote Green Arrow comics. Mark Guggenheim is very knowledged in that world, and Greg Berlanti is one of the best producers in Hollywood. They understand how to tell a good story, and what they wanted to do is ‘how do we make a story that can broaden out the audience base?’ Not just make it a superhero show, but make it a show about heroes, and make it about justice. One area we were leading toward more is not to try to do something in the air of a Smallville world, but more like The Equalizer, the old TV series. That kind of situation, to balance out the type and tone of the show. I think it really worked out so beautifully, with respect to the writing and the series and everyone’s involvement. It was about how to tell the best story, and they know how to do that,” he says.

Continuing the theme of keeping the show grounded, Nutter says the show’s maturity will “really give it a sense of weight.” “I know that there have been some superhero shows attempted in the last two to three years, with other people, that I thought were kind of juvenile in some respect in how they created the superhero. I’ve been involved in science fiction based stuff for a very long time, and you have to respect the audience, because they’re the strongest and the best. But also, true, if you’re not true to trying to tell a great story, they’ll spit you out in a second. So I think the object there was to really admire the intelligence of the audience, and play to that, which is the most important part of it,” he says.

The Arrow pilot afforded Nutter and his team to visit a location that was seen in the Smallville pilot but was never actually used beyond the exteriors – the Hatley Castle in Victoria, British Columbia. On Smallville, the castle was used for Lex Luthor’s mansion; now, we see it as the residence of Oliver Queen and his family. “What happened this year was when pilot season started, I went up to Vancouver very quickly, and I said ‘let’s get this location, this location, and this location before anybody else can get ‘em,’ and we got these locations, and we had a chance to do the castle on Victoria which was really primo,” he explains.

Nutter sees no end to the possibilities for the show after the pilot. “In the pilot, there is that list. There is that episode of the week situation. There is that situation where every week, there will be that part of the story. But also, what is really wonderful is that we’ll also be taking the series back into the world using flashbacks, and seeing, basically, what made him who he is today. We’ll be going back to the island, and really dealing with that, and finding out what causes his physical and emotional scars that turned him into he is today, and what changed him,” he says, comparing Oliver to a certain dark knight who dresses himself as a flying rodent. “The thing with Oliver Queen is the fact that, unlike Bruce Wayne, he was an @$$#ole when he was younger. So now, he has to wear so many different masks in his new life, that you’re going to be dealing with that emotional story as well. It’s also a family drama in some respects. You’re dealing with his little sister, his mother, and all the complications, and where that goes, as well. It’s very interesting how the show’s going to take off,” he says.

Arrow premieres October 10 on The CW. Read some of our other Arrow interviews here at GreenArrowTV – this concludes our run of Comic-Con interviews, but some more good stuff should be on the way between now and October!

JULY 30, 2012 12:47 PM ‘Arrow’ producers explain why Justin Hartley wasn’t cast By James Hibberd

Image Credit: AP Why did The CW’s Arrow producers not cast Smallville‘s Green Arrow played by Justin Hartley?

Well, if you’ve seen the pilot, you know why Stephen Amell was cast. It’s just a very different take on the character and a much more physical role. But let’s hear it from executive producer Marc Guggenheim: “We certainly wanted to chart our own course and destiny,” he told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour Monday. “Justin is a terrific Arrow.”

Guggenheim, noting he was borrowing the following comparison, added: “Michael Keaton [as Batman] doesn’t affect your love for Christian Bale and Christian Bale doesn’t affect your love for Adam West … multiple iterations are possible.”

For the role, Amell trained on a course often used to prepare athletes for Ninja Warrior and also learned free-running (parkour). And, of course, the actor learned archery, with his instructor starting off by showing him a 45-minute video of all the ways the archery had been executed poorly in TV and movies in the past.

Though Guggenheim made the comparison to Batman, one notable difference between the two comic book characters is that Green Arrow deliberately kills bad guys (pretty tough to use an bow and arrow and always aim for the leg).

“We’re exploring the nature of vigilantism … and well get into those [moral] issues,” Guggenheim said. “The Arrow always gives the bad guy the opportunity to do the right thing … when he kills, he kills for necessity … it’s not just random violence … we’ll face the issues of his morality head on…that’s part of the fun quite, frankly, when telling a story about a vigilante.”

Expect Oliver Queen’s liberal side from the comic books to not be entirely dumped either, though it sounds like it will be a bit toned down. “The people that Oliver is targeting are the wealthy and corrupt,” Guggenheim said. “There’s some echos of the 1 percent and Occupy Wall Street … he’s man of the people and taking it back for the little guy.”

Producers also gave a hint of how the series will end — now there’s something you don’t often get during an interview before a show has even premiered! Arrow‘s pilot features flashbacks to Queen being stranded on an island where he morphed from selfish rich kid to vigilant hero. Those flashbacks, producers say, will continue in every episode for the entire series.

“The last episode of the series will be [Arrow] seeing the [rescue] boat in the pilot,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “Every week is telling the origin story.”

Exclusive: Arrow Casts Deadshot!

The CW's Arrow hasn't even premiered yet, and already his list of DC Universe enemies is growing. First, fans saw a peek of Deathstroke's mask in the pilot screened at this summer's Comic-Con in San Diego, followed soon after by the announcement during the show's panel that Kelly Hu would be playing drug-cartel badass China White in the second episode. And now, TV Guide Magazine can exclusively report that Canadian actor Michael Rowe (not that Mike Rowe) will be playing the previously reported role of Deadshot in episode 3, titled "The Lone Gunman."

"Deadshot doesn't speak much, so he has to have that physicality," says executive producer Marc Guggenheim (FlashForward) of the Suicide Squad member who may be best known for battling Batman in the comic-book world. "And Michael certainly has that. He has that look." As for whether Deadshot is a one-shot gig, Guggenheim's fellow EPs Greg Berlanti (Political Animals) and Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13) both agree that Stephen Amell's Emerald Archer will most likely cross paths with newcomer Rowe's hitman beyond this first meeting. "I think that's very possible," hints Berlanti.

Arrow lets loose Wednesday, Oct. 9 on The CW. Are you planning to check it out? And what other supervillains would you like to see show up?

As much as I don't like face paint idea. Maybe for the start here ollie is using it like how military folks use it in combat. Plus who's to say over the course of the show he might change look up ie dropping the face paint to a real mask/goggle take. Say he has some close calls with the police or x baddie of the week. And he sees then just wearing face paint more so iff his hood gets pulled down doesn't work. Same with rest of the costume could change too like having no sleeves, to maybe making a bullet proof suit and other things. We are seeing him at the start of his hero career here.

Will Firestorm be coming to arrow?:
http://superherohype.com/news/articles/172111-firestorm-coming-to-the-cws-arrow
Firestorm Coming to The CW's Arrow? by Spencer Perry August 03, 2012 Share this story

The supporting cast continues to grow

With China White, Deathstroke and Deadshot already confirmed for the new CW show Arrow, it looks like Oliver Queen will have his hands full, maybe to the point that he needs help? We've gotten word from Kabookit that Emily Bett Rickards has been cast in the show as Felicity Smoak. That name might not mean anything to some of you, but keen observers will realize that this is the stepmother of one half of the hero Firestorm, Ronald Raymond. The part is described as a recurring role so maybe we will get to see Ronnie sometime in the show; however, that would go against earlier claims by the show's staff and cast that "no one in Arrow has super powers."

From Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern), Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13, Fringe) and David Nutter (Smallville, Supernatural, Game of Thrones), the hard-hitting action series reinvents the DC hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime. The series premieres Wednesday, October 10th at 8 p.m. ET/PT

The series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.

Arrow adds another to cast:

Arrow Adds Byron Mann by Spencer Perry August 10, 2012 Share this story

But who will he be playing?

Deadline is reporting that actor Byron Mann has signed on to the CW's Arrow. No word on the name of his character but he's described as, "an enigmatic man who has a complex connection to Oliver Queen/Arrow (Stephen Amell)".

One of two things can be taken from this, he's either playing a character that is an original creation for the show or someone from the DCU that the creators want to keep a secret. Though it seems more likely for him to be a wholly new character since the team behind Arrow haven't tried to hide who any of the DC characters that have been added so far.

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.

The show premieres Wednesday, October 10th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

'Torchwood’ star John Barrowman joins CW’s ‘Arrow’ —EXCLUSIVE By James Hibberd

Image Credit: AP

Captain Jack is coming to The CW!

John Barrowman is joining the network’s new fall action-drama Arrow.

The Doctor Who and Torchwood star has signed for a recurring role in Arrow’s debut season. Producers are not saying much about his character,only revealing that he will play a “well-dressed man” who is “as mysterious as he is wealthy … he is an acquaintance of the Queen family and a prominent figure in Starling City.”

Hmmm … one suspects the character is from the Green Arrow comic mythology. Philanthropist Stanley Dover Sr.,perhaps? Unless they’re doing a new twist on Brick or the Green Lantern…

Barrowman is a choice that’s sure to rally fans of his Torchwood work. The actor was also cast in Shonda Rhimes’ recent ABC pilot effort Gilded Lilys.

Arrow recently drew raves during a pilot screening at Comic-Con. The show debuts Wednesday,Oct. 10 on The CW.
