Check Out The Huntress In Upcoming Episode of 'Arrow' TV Show

Images of actress Jessica De Gouw on the set of the CW show in full Huntress regalia have hit the web.

This Wednesday we will be seeing actress Jessica De Gouw make her first appearance as Helena Bertinelli on the hit CW television series, Arrow. However, if you're hoping to see the actress don full Huntress regalia, you might have to wait until next week's episode titled "Vendetta," which premieres Wednesday night, November 28th. If you were one of the fans hoping that this version of the Huntress wouldn't have to show off a belly window, well, you're in luck.

De Gouw will grace the small screen in a small mask (smaller than Huntress' mask in the comics), and a long trench coat and boots. So how much of this version of the Huntress will be the same as what we've seen in the comics? Well, her penchant for the color purple, for example as well as her weapon of choice; the crossbow; are two characteristics that will remain consistent. We've got plenty more pictures below, but what do you think? Does De Gouw look like the Huntress? Do you like this more conservative looking costume for the character as opposed to the big mask, combat boots and belly window?

Based on the images, it is clear that these two characters are going to be fighting crime side-by-side, and that begs the question what other DC characters do you think would fit into Arrow's world? Do you think other Bat-Family characters like Red Robin or Nightwing should appear on the show? What about super-powered characters like The Flash? Could they fit into Arrow's world?

Why does she have a mask and Ollie just has dumb face paint!

AWESOME!!!

This show just keeps getting better. Coming from someone who's never liked the character, that's saying something :)

As for other cameos, I doubt we'll ever see powered characters appear, but luckily DC has a hearty roster of unpowered ones, so hopefully we'll get to see some of them.

Posted by Robrat93

damn i thought it was gonna be helena wayne ugh baretenelli is gone out of the new 52 for a reason should of made her wayne. booooo

Posted by blueninjapanther

if Ollie dosen't want to be seen you should have a mask not just some lousy green face paint. It so cheap. Since his family is rich buy a mask.

Posted by Ravager4

As long as those boots don't have stiletto heels...

Posted by SupBatz

Definitely a step in the right direction. I always liked Huntress (Bertinelli moreso than Wayne) so this is exciting. Maybe she could even eventually lead up to Laurel becoming Black Canary.

Posted by Reignmaker

These stills look kind of dorky. Hopefully it feels more legit when everything is moving.

Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy

Meh. I can't get into the show. And I love some Green Arrow.

Posted by Dark_Vengeance_

You smell that? I think it's a Batman appearance in the way.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

AWESOME but they could have found a thicker girl for huntress :D

Posted by _Black

Is it just me or is that the puniest crossbow you've ever seen?

Posted by They Killed Cap!

not a fan of her look...and I like Olie's mask

Posted by whiteknight67

bout time she looks hot GA isn't Smallville but it is taking some time to get going

Posted by fodigg

Simple enough take on the character, but why give her an honest mask if you're going to shy away from that with GA himself?

Posted by Miss_Garrick

That's the best Huntress costume in the last ten years.

Posted by Crom-Cruach

awful, just awful.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

She kinda has the look Bertinelli had from the Nightwing/Huntress crossover in my opinion. Just strange that she has an actual mask and yet Ollie doesn't :/

Posted by BoyWander

Maybe she'll teach Ollie the ellusive concept of wearing a mask. She's too black in my opinion. Needs more purple.

I'm sold

Looking forward to watch this episode!

Posted by zackattack529

So im guessing there has to be mention of Batman or Catwoman soon.

If nto im okay with it, I like the idea of a new, fresh, huntress.

But does anyone cringe at the idea that all of green arrows villains are batman based?

Hnestly I like Arrow, but it feels TOO BATMAN to me.

I hate how DC thrives on the success of batman, it buggs me. just my opinion.

Here are a couple more pics for anybody interested. Huntress

Yeah, I feel like they should have just played it straight and made a Batman show.

Posted by Cole_Mercer

@Seafarinhare: I would not be surprised if this was originally suppose to be a batman show

Posted by cloudzackvincent

looks great... i like the show inspite of never really liking GA

Posted by geoff2005

hahah maybe Dick Grayson will appear.

I know its not the same Green Arrow but do you think the Blur will make an appearance?

Posted by Eyz

Looking pretty nice!

This show just keep on getting better.

Actually I could see a Green Lantern appearance - as Hal Jordan did in Mike Grell's run on the series , which the show draws a lot from - aka not-in-costume.

Posted by VioletPhoenix

Yay! I really do wonder if they'll head into the super-powered world direction. The scene with Laurel's fighting skills at the club showed there's more to her than just law skills, possibly a canary cry too? Here's hoping!

Posted by jointron33

Damn it, they've blatantly said Bertinelli, not Wayne. And they also said no super powers.

Posted by Jmacq1

@jointron33: Yeah, they might change their minds eventually but for now? No powers.

Let's not forget that for a good 10+ years Black Canary didn't have her Canary Cry except in the form of sonic grenades (something that would be very in-keeping with the show).

Huntress looks like she fits the aesthetic of the show just fine.

I doubt we'll ever see Batman (or Nightwing for that matter) on this show. Smallville could have gotten away with it because Superman is an "equal" character to Batman, and because in a super-powered world there are ways to have other characters "equal" Batman without overshadowing him or being overshadowed. Batman in Arrow would just mean Ollie would be completely overshadowed, as Bruce would be better at every single thing Ollie does except shooting arrows. Not to mention that he'd kick Ollie's arse and turn him in to the cops for his lethal methods. Plus, as persnickety as WB is about sharing Batman amongst their various properties, I'd imagine some executive would veto it so that "it doesn't cause confusion" with the inevitable Bat-reboot, whether as part of a JLA film or in a standalone.

More likely guest star? The Question/Vic Sage.

Yes, so far this show is the love child of Smallville and The Dark Knight trilogy. It's definitely still finding its' footing, but has potential to be awesome.

THe actress looks cool but her costume is awful.

That's been the constant problem I've had with the show. Instead of it feeling like a Green Arrow show I keep feeling like I'm getting a watered down batman.

I’ve been happy with every other DC character on Arrow, so I’m sure that Huntress making an appearance for a few episodes will fit nicely into the storyline. A few friends that work at DISH with me are comic book fans too, so we all look forward to the small screen interpretations of characters. Every episode has been awesome, and I know that I’ll get nostalgic between the new ones, so I’m saving this entire season to my DISH Hopper. A DVR with a 2TB hard drive is exactly what I need for this fall TV lineup. Cheers to Starling City being shaken up by Huntress.

Posted by GeekyEverAfter

Eh..... its okay but the crossbow is too small looks like a plastic toy.

Posted by Helena_Bertinelli

I'm honestly just happy she's getting actual screen time.

I'm a big fan of the show, [And obviously her.] and I look at how we all should; 'in cannon and non form'. So it keeps me grounded so to speak on all the ideas it runs with. Granted every single time a true comic moment happens I fan girl like no other, and just want to roll on the floor flailing with little comic hearts floating around my head. I just take it all with enjoyment and hope that it lasts more than just one season.

Posted by Stormbox

Looks cool

Posted by HexThis

I'm truly thrilled. Huntress, Bertinelli's Huntress, is amazing. For me, this show and my ability to continue watching it hinges heavily on her being well written/acted. I think she may be able to save the show seeing as how everyone else appears to have been messed with when it comes to their origins. They're sticking pretty close to her character apparently and the producers all seemed very excited about her inclusion.

Make her a regular or something! Give her her own show, dammit! Okay, well, I should see this episode first before making such demands...

Posted by jorgeareizaga

 she looks cool!

Posted by blastaar

Do you guys remember that show 'Birds of Prey'? Don't you think if it had come out today it would've been an instant hit? Especially coming off the heels of Nolan's Batman trilogy.

Edited by Oasis95

I am ok with the set up ^_^ she looks pretty good to me, because this more of her character starting., she has the hint of purple and she just start learning to use the small bow gun. so if the show picks up more season . i think down the line they show a full upgrade version ,being that she still starting new in that arrow tv show world.

as someone said batman..damn....that would be nice..but it will never happen.. because movies people will be freaking out that the tv batman will mess up there view of batman for the movies.. over all its just the whole license thing..

any how here my wish fan thinking..hm..maybe at least Bruce wayne popping out..would be neat..or heck..have someone else from the bat family make a guest star...talking about the dark knight or wayne ... =D here big fan idea which will never happen... Kevin!! the voice of batman..using his voice in the background .. i dunno arrow hear batman talking but you just never see him. haha

No belly window? Awww, that sucks.
