These are 2 of the more realistic worlds based on a comic book so I want to know which one you guys think is the more realistic one. For me it has to be Arrow's, the simple fact that in Nolan's world they at least refer to Batman as Batman and not "the vigilante" or "the bat guy" makes it seem more comic booky. Also Oliver is pretty much the only unrealistic part of his world, whereas Nolan's has Batman, Bane, microwave emitters, Ra's al Ghul and the League of Shadows.

Which do you think is more realistic.

So far it's batman that's the most unrealistic but as arrow grows and has to one up themselves with villains and story lines then arrow well end up just as unrealistic or even more

Hulk never saw the Green Arrow show, so Hulk don't know.

Pretty much what I think.

Batman has bigger, more unrealistic themes, but it still feels more realistic because CW can't help but insert its trademark gossip-girl-like characterization in every show it produces.

CW Arrow.

CW's Arrow. Though I still for the love of me can't figure out why no one is able to classify Oliver as Green Arrow on the show. So you mean to tell me that some green spray paint over your eyes mask your identity. Hell Laurel's dad was face to face with him, and you mean to tell me he couldn't decipher whom Green Arrow really was? It isn't like he wears a mask.

He literally uses a regular phone that scrambles his voice, but as far as we know, its location is still traceable.

Not to mention he gets hurt/messes up in every single mission he goes in (arrows hitting him by rival archer, shot by his own mother, etc. etc.)

But yeah Arrow is a lot more realistic. They actually use regular Window computers in his hideout, while Batman has huge waterfalls, advanced technology that we don't have yet (but only barely beyond our grasp), and unrealistic themes.

Going with Arrow. The most unrealistic thing about that show is his accuracy with a bow and arrow haha.

If you watch him when he talks to people he knows he never looks them in the eye. He always keeps his head down and his hood forward. Plus the voice changer, makes it a pretty good set up. Better than Superman or Spider-Man or Batman.

Batman. He did his own stuff and did a better job of shipping equipment in. It also makes no sense how he can get across town without a vehicle.

Arrow is an awful show. Who the f**k uses a bow an arrow to take out people in a fire fight? It's ridiculous that he always manages to load and fire and duck before getting shot.

Nolan's Batman universe is more realistic because Arrow is in the same universe with Flash.

Nolanverse easily.

@jack_donaghy: Arrow shares the same world with Flash, Captain Cold, and a time traveling genius.

Also Batman can be shot down and reliess on gear and ninjitsu. Basically, Japanese guerrilla warfare.

Arrow can dodge objects traveling at 250 miles per hour. He survived being kicked by a man who left footprints in concrete.

Nolan created the most realistic universe.

Batman. It isn't like every TV superhero who finds his bad guys through a magical hacker who can do anything they want for the sake of plot.

Also...

-Arrow has mirakuru that turns people into instant super soldiers

-Oliver has magical island powder from a plant that apparently gets rid of poison

-Arrow has Flash

-We can assume Arrow has Lazarus Pits

-In Arrow, you can find out who purchased a product by simply calling the business and asking them. That's not a breach of privacy or anything...

-Arrow will likely have the Atom soon

-Captain Boomerang

-Arrow can beat Flash

Etc etc

Nolanverse by far. Even if you go back to series one before the Mirakuru, metahumans etc, Ollie would stand a couple of feet in front of people he has known his entire life with a hood on and they couldn't tell who he was, he was suspected of being the vigilante by the Police Force and this wasn't a major headline for the next 5 years, Diggle runs around without any kind of mask on 95% of the time and Felicity Smoak is used as a go between, but nobody has deduced the Arrow is Oliver Queen other than Wells, because he's just 'so smart' . I could go on.

Also, Slade being so childish, it's just silly, if you want to make the twenty somethings CWfied, that's fine... but not Slade, never Slade.

Fortunately Manu Bennett is a demi-god so he saves the performance with sheer force of will.

Quentin must know, at the end of the show, they have to say Quentin has known since season two but just represses it or doesn't say anything.

Nolan film in real places, Arrow location lookslike if they were made out of cardboard.

Nolan Batman I mean its to hard to even imagine the Flash in that world. Sure there are some unrealistic things in the movies, but are still really grounded and realistic.

Nolan's Batman by a long shot. I don't remember resurrection of long dead characters and gossip girl / teen drama characterisation in each installment in that one.
