The CW has released an extended look at the upcoming Green Arrow TV show, Arrow. This longer look gives us a better feel as to what the show's tone will be like. It doesn't look like they'll be holding back on the production. The more I see, the more I excited I get.

It sounds as if he might just be calling himself "Arrow" instead of "Green Arrow." We'll have to see if that's really the case. I'm still not exactly sure why they wanted to drop the "Green" in the title. I understand "Green Arrow" makes it clear it's a comic book character and maybe they want to separate themselves a tiny bit from that. The show does appear to be taking a more serious and darker approach rather than a campier one. It definitely doesn't look as light as Smallville was.

Thoughts? Was that Deathstroke's mask at the end?

Color me all sorts of pumped. I wish his name wasn't just Arrow but I can overlook that. Can't wait until this Fall.

If they're dropping Green it may be to distance themselves from Green Lantern. That film didn't do anywhere near as well as hoped.

It actually looks pretty cool. I hope it ends up actually being really good.

It could be true, but its not bcos the film under performed. Its because there were too many characters with a Green in them, Green Hornet, Green Lantern, so the audience got a little confused.

I love how the arrow is going through the eye of the Deathstroke mask.

looks good but I really don't understand why WB and DC have this problem with just keeping things the way they are...why can't they just call it Green Arrow?

I think they drooped the "Green" from his name to seperate it from the Smallville Green Arrow. It looks cool.

Looks really good. That has to be Deathstroke's mask right? Half black and half orange. But why would his mask be on the island and with an arrow through it? Maybe they are hinting at a possible villain who could show up on the show later, and give him a connection to the island before he shows up to give him a greater connection to Arrow.

I like how they are showing how much his time on the island effected him.

And my favorite parts are when he looks all scruffy with a long beard from the island, like the comics.

It looks to me like they're hinting that Deathstroke had something to do with Oliver Queen winding up on the island. He's a wealthy playboy - it makes sense that the boating accident would have been a hired hit.

Horrible how? I mean for a commercial for the CW which most of its general audiance are ages 13-21 and most of them probably watch more gritty shows than anything else. This seems like a very nice line up in their programming. cause remember webjaker. in order to sell and idea to the general public, you have to treat them like idiots by having fast images, violence, sex and a hard rock soundtrack. Though it dumbs people down, it makes money in the end. Though the show to me looks interesting ill see how long ill be watching it. oh and on a side note.

Unless Deadpool jumped ship again, than that's definitely Deathstroke's mask.

If they were gonna make this they might as well have made a Batman live action show. Guy with something horrible happening to him. Check. Comes back home to clean up his city from crime. Check. Dark moodiness. Check. Deep growl in voice when in costume. Check.

OMG Deathstroke. I am SOLD!

This is only the trailer for the pilot, but I hope they eventually change his name to Green Arrow like how it's supposed to be.

I also hope they incorporate some of his rogues gallery like Merlyn, Count Vertigo, Catman & Prometheus. And occasionally have guest appearances by other DCU heroes and villains like Smallville did.

I also hope Black Canary has her powers. I would also like to eventually see further down the line they incorporate Speedy (Roy Harper) into the series. Maybe for season 3 or something.

They don't have to put as work into a Green Arrow show because not everyone knows who he is. If they made a Batman show for TV, and it tanked than that would hurt the good will from the movies he's gained. Also a Batman TV show would need a huge budget to make it edgy enough, money they might not get back. Arrow is a burst into the public eye for Green Arrow and if it tanks, it isn't that big of a deal because they already didn't know who he was. If it does well, than DC has another popular character to profit from. So it's a lot less risk for them to make this show, in my opinion.
