Warner Bros. today unveiled the first official image from Arrow, the pilot now shooting and starring Stephen Amell. (If you’re already reading GreenArrowTV, you probably already knew that was coming!)
Here’s some more information that Warner Bros. has released:
- A brief plotline: “After being marooned for five years on a remote island, former billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime.”
- The Arrow costume was designed by three-time Oscar®-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood.
- We’ve also got a quote from pilot director David Nutter, who also directed the first episode of Smallville eleven years ago: “When I directed the pilot for Smallville, I knew that making Clark Kent relatable would be the key to audiences believing in him as a hero. Arrow is a different show — darker and harder-edged — but it’s the same core idea. We’re creating a real, believable world in which Oliver Queen can do incredible things. Colleen Atwood’s great work on the Arrow costume reflects that effort.”
Arrow is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter, who is directing, from a teleplay by Kreisberg & Guggenheim, story by Berlanti & Guggenheim. Melissa Kellner Berman is co-executive producer. Arrow is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television and is based upon characters appearing in comic books and graphic novels published by DC Comics. © 2012 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved. Photo Credit: Joseph Lederer
