The CW has released the first image from Arrow, starring Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen and Arrow.
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.
Arrow’s suit was designed by three-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood.
Arrow pilot director/executive producer David Nutter said: “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 based upon characters appearing in comic books and graphic novels published by DC Comics.
