Yesterday we got to see a clip from the CW's show, Arrow, featuring Oliver Queen getting ready to become Green Arrow. Today we get to see a little more from the upcoming show. The guys at iFanboy posted this 'trailer' for the show.

It's an interesting take. Many have already questioned why the show is called 'Arrow' and not 'Green Arrow.' We just have to settle for the fact that at least we're getting a comic book TV show. It's looking pretty good so far. We'll have to see how it all fits together and how true to the comics it stays.

Arrow will be airing Wednesday nights on the CW. Are you planning on checking it out?

I'll see how it turns out. I don't have really high hopes, but they're still there.

At first I was resistant to the idea of this show, but after watching that trailer I'll give it a shot. The CW sure does like filming in Canada, cause that what the wilderness on that deserted island looked like.

I gonna give this a go, but to be honest I'm not hopeful.

I'm glad they changed the logo though.

Looks okay. Still doubtful about how long it lasts though. It's real hard to enjoy a show these days without worrying about cancellations. Hope it does well.

I'll definitely give it a try, but I doubt i will like it... honestly I don't like any of the live action shows except for maybe Birds of Prey! Buffy, Angel, Xena, etc don't count since they were shows before comics...but yeah...lol

C'mon man, you can't fault people for thinking like that. Hawkeye, for many people, is the superhero who uses a bow and arrow. You shouldn't call them stupid over something so minuscule.

It'll be canceled after the first season. And that's me being hopeful.

You mean like how Electra, Black Widow and Catwoman wears exactly the same outfit?

Besides, Long time fans of CW network would know who Green Arrow is.

He appeared on Smallville for 5 years. Smallville is also running now on TNT. The whole ten season. Green Arrow is also a huge part of the show, so I doubt people would think he is hawkeye.

Green Arrow has been on air for 5 years while Hawkeye only 3 hours.

Not bad really. The costume is very Mike Grell inspired. I'm not expecting much from this show so even if it's watchable I'll be happy.

The guy who plays Green Arrow does a much better job than Justin from Smallville. Glad they replaced him.

I'm definitely going to have to check it out. Hopefully it'll be better than a lot of the 'comic book shows' have been in the past...

Lol he says "nobody can know my secret" at the end of the trailer. Give it 2 seasons and he will tell his girlfriend. I'm sure of this.

So, Green Arrow vs. Red Skull - interesting..LOL

Trailer looks better than the clip posted earlier... but all-in-all doesn't look very good. Kinda wish they had stuck with Justin Hartley and just fast forwarded to after he lost all his money

Feels like a cross between "Batman Begins" and ABC's TV show "Revenge" meets "Robin Hood".

Looks like this is the updated trailer from CW.

I guess we'll be expecting a longer trailer with more edits.

I'm definitely going to check it out and it looks pretty promising, but a small part of me fears that it'll turn out to be "The Cape' all over again.

If this is based on a comic book character then WHY IS IT SO HARD TO GIVE HIM A MASK?

Without the mask he's just robin hood.

Continues to look surprisingly good.

Though... and this may be nitpicking from a huge Green Arrow fan, where is Ollie's snark? I know it realistically would be difficult for someone who has gone through what he has to keep his sense of humor, but part of what differentiates Ollie is his snarkiness and 'take-no-guff' attitude. Definitely feels like they're going more for the post-Longbow Hunters / pre-Quiver Ollie.

who gives a shit if he is or isnt wearing a mask. Makes no difference.

@1fearless1: Oh and besides, the teeny little mask that GA traditionally wears, doesn't protect his identity in anyway whatsoever.

Besides, you wouldn't wanna cover those beautiful cheek bones do you.

This looks amazing! I'm a huge fan of Smallville but this is gonna blow that show away in my opinion.

I'll give it a try. The designe of it all looks decent enough, though depending on how long it goes on for it could end up re-using the same sets over and overain as smallville did. but other than that let's give it a watch :)

finally someone can use the same person who plays green arrow to make it into a movie and form a justice league movie.

Looks better than I would expect, but still not too sure...let's see how it'll turn out! (I just have a feeling they'll completely butcher his character)
