'ARROW' Gets A Mask

The latest image and video clip gives us a closer look at Green Arrow in the upcoming CW television series.

Although 'ARROW' won't be streaming on television sets across America until the series premieres on Wednesday, October 10th; the CW has been making sure to release some information, images and clips to get us geared up for the upcoming show. The latest image gives us a peek at 'Arrow' with his mask on -- but is it us, or is that face paint? Up until now we haven't really seen images of actor Stephen Amell -- who will be playing Oliver Queen on the upcoming television series -- in full Green Arrow costume, and it seems he'll be taking a more unconventional approach to hiding his identity. We kind of like the look, but what do you think?

Also, don't forget to check out the latest teaser clip from the show where we get to see Oliver Queen kick some major butt and do his best to keep his true identity a secret. Are you looking forward to the CW show? Of the footage we've seen, do you think this show will have a darker tone than 'Smallville'?

Looking forward to this show, the trailers have been really decent

Yeah it looks alot darker then Smallville plus...a better version of Stroke

Posted by sethysquare

LOL, This will shut all the complainers up now that theres a mask (which I honestly don't care for)

Posted by DDangelico

phew, I was beginning to think that this version of Oliver didn't care about concealing his identity. We all know how telling cheek bones can be!

Posted by AweSam

I hope Green Arrow and Deathstroke get some recognition, finally. Although, I dislike the idea of Ollie beating Slade.

Posted by Press Oblivion

Yeah man! I'm really looking forward to this! He's got a lot of Batman appeal and I think that they're trying to capitalize on it here and it's looking great!

Looks good, except needs more beard

Cool clip I guess. Nothing in it screams Green Arrow though. Also, not a fan of Ollie killing even if it is for his identity.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I like that they are straying away from Justin Hartley's costume in Smallville

This show looks awesome. Mad I missed the pilot screening at Comic Con. But I heard people talking about it and saying its a grown up dark version of Smallville. Sounds perfect for me.

Well aside from laughing at the ridiculous jump Oliver completed at the 1:29 mark,i enjoyed that clip.I could actually see myself watching this for many seasons as I did with Smallville.Seriously anybody not think that jump was a little awkward?Okay hes not cool...yet,he'll get there.

I am actually pumped. I really can't wait to see if any other DC character will play important roles like GA, and the "Justice League" did in Smallville. That would be awesome.

Posted by NightFang

Looks good, but I still hate the killing thing.

Posted by Trixie

The mask is much better than the sunglasses. And that clip was funny.

What was wrong with it? That's how it's preformed in Parkour

China White will appear in episode 2.

Deadshot will appear in episode 3.

Deathstroke will probably be the main villain for season 1.

Definitely Face paint but not a bad thing at all! Looks decent. and doesn't have to worry about it falling off.

Posted by Bestostero

I think it's face paint, it looks like the stuff Black Canary had in Smallville.

Posted by The Finality

I really dont like that he killed him

Posted by LoganRogue24

i still don"t get why green arrow gets two tv shows and kara gets none. green arrow had smallville season 6 7 8 9 and 10. why can"t kara get her own show shes a great charater.

Posted by BlackArmor

The black......it burrrrrrrns us

Posted by Planewalker

I like is fighting style has a bit of parkour and stuff cool never though Green Arrow could be so cool. Anyway I like him in the new world that old beard really tick me off it seemed a 18 century character instead of a 21st century

Posted by RedOwl_1

Waaait, Did he said 'en serio'?!? Having some spanish words around seems nice

Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7

I loved Smallville, so hopefully I'll love this.

Why are the pictures on the site clickable? When you click to see a better view and the picture is the same size, what is the point? If you are not enlarging the pic than just have a static image.

Posted by sethysquare

Stephen Amell loves Aquaman!!!!

Posted by Savage_Hawkman

It looks like he's wearing a Fruit Roll-up on his face.

Posted by ssejllenrad

DEEEEAAAATTTHHHHSSSTTTRRROOOOOOKE!

Posted by _Black

Deathstroke and Deadshot will hopefully make up for Ollie killing.

Posted by KEROGA

I hope Roy Harper is in the show ,even if his not a archer or a sidekick....i would be cool if he was just a civilian friend or something

Posted by batman_begins

Oliver Queen kills. He isn't Bruce with his code of ethics and morals. Queen maims but need be, he does step that line as well.

Posted by Metron144

Mask? Looks like he just painted around his eyes.

Posted by Metron144

"hey so listen, we need you to spit during the torture to give it a grittier vibe you know? Like it's so painfull that you just have to show your teeth, breath heavy, and have spit fly out of your mouth. OH OH, be carefull now, don't look like you're in pain, well look like you're in pain, but keep a mean expression on your face. That way you know, you're still tough and cool."

Posted by fluffypigeons

looks great, i love the way death strokes mask looks.

Posted by Madame_Mist

I get that it's edgy, but the paint is just rather odd.

Posted by CaptainLantern76

This looks great.

The masks the thugs wore freaked me out at first.

Posted by Bobsjonjon

Never was an archer fan, but this Green Arrow looks good!

Posted by pingclang

The painted look actually makes me pretty happy. In Mike Grell`s run, which this seems to take heavy from, he wore paint instead of the mask. I love the mask and would like to see it on the show, but that is definitely a close second.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

I do like that they're using the hood costume version, that's the coolest Green Arrow costume.

Posted by StayclassyMarvel

For the love of god, just call him Green Arrow.

Posted by CrimsonCake

I wonder if we'll see Speedy (Mia).

Posted by MrMazz

Looks surprisingly good for the CW. That said I did have a nice chuckle at him using a dragon sleeper to break the dudes neck.

Posted by JamDamage

hmmm. so he kills? on primetime t.v.. not expected.

Posted by Fetts

This really looks like a great show. Can't wait.

Posted by druzod2501

I swear I've seen that same building set used in Fringe, Alcatraz, and a bunch of other show

Posted by blueninjapanther

I can't wait to watch this. He could be green arrow if anyoe decided to make a justice league movie.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Man, this is REALLY making me yearn for this show now. If I was on the fence about it before, I'm now convinced this will be great!

Posted by rafaeldutrabrito

did I see he shove a knife on the guys neck/chest?

what the hell!!!!!

DC doesnt KILL BITCH!!!!!

i sure hope thats not a new age begining for DC (changin dc ultimate heroes to killers superheroes like mavel) , we all know comic superheroes change a LOT but that would suck so much!

the only reason for that, would be the lack of imagination that people making stories for this heroes today have!!!!!

Posted by landau_corinthian

Looks like that thug went to the Galactic Empire's school of sharp shooting. Show looks good though. Actually a bit excited.
