If you've been watching Arrow, you know that Ollie hasn't been using a mask. He's been putting on the makeup or face paint around his eyes and pulls his hood down low. I've always joked that applying all that makeup, or removing it, adds unnecessary time that could compromise his secret identity. It does look like he won't have to apply as much.

Stephen Amell Tweeted the following image from an upcoming cover to Entertainment Weekly showing the addition of a mask.

What are your thoughts on the mask? It does give him more of a 'superhero' look rather than the gritty street vigilante. But more importantly, how would he have time to apply all that makeup when lives are in danger and a quick change is needed?

I like it.

They could probably incorporate night vision / thermals / etc into the mask at some point too. W

Cool , makes his costume look much better .

Looks pretty cheesy in the light, but it probably works better in the dark and with the hood's shaddow.

I like it hopefully he gets a new costume and adds night vision to them

Great! Now no one can find out his secret identity by splashing water in his face and ruining his make up.

@fallschirmjager: I know that, but it looks good. His current is pointless, IIRC.

Ever since Marvel announced that deal with Nexflix, Dc had to counter with something. Giving Arrow a mask is to combat the onslaught that Marvel is gonna bring. Iron Fist, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Drew, and a Defenders Tv show.

Yeah, Dc you better strap up.... Cause all you got is this show and Jim Gordon in the works. Marvel is gonna own you in the Tv entertainment side as well.

Your information is wrong buddy.

DC has announced, Flash, Gotham PD, Hourman and Constantine.

And then Marvel announced all its netflix shows.

Lmfaoo WHAT? Marvel shows are going straight to netflix. Dc announced a couple of shows before Marvel. Agents of sheild alrady sucks so i see no real threat if they go the comedy route.

Awesome. Now grow out the beard and mustache.

@vincethekid: Could you be more wrong? DC had also announced a Constantine, Flash, and Hourman show BEFORE Marvel announced its Netflix plan. We haven't even seen the DC response to that yet. DC will continue owning Marvel in the TV world for the forseeable future especially if SHIELD shows what theyre capable of.

Looks silly, but then any mask that obscures a person's face less than a pair of aviators would. Ah well, comics everybody.

Maybe now he won't have to have his head dipped so much when he's talking to people.

#31 Posted by DCVibe (37 posts) - - Show Bio

Good move, now give him a sense of humor and then we have Green Arrow!

@wolverine08: The whole Lemire/Sorrentino run has been badass.

They need to give Lemire a shot at a bigger character soon. He has absolutely killed everything he's done recently.

smallville did it better

Smallville GA costume looks like he bought it at Wal Mart, this looks much better

I'm happy for it still not a big identity hider but better then the pain and its got to be a hell of a lot easier to take off.

Wha?!?! Hey! Where'd Oliver go?? That guy who has his eyes kinda covered looks nothing like him!

#41 Edited by knightofthechronicle (638 posts) - - Show Bio

I like it, kind of wondering when they were going to give him one. Can't wait for the next episode tomorrow!

#42 Edited by patrat18 (8479 posts) - - Show Bio

Justine was a better Ollie. Stephen is a better Green arrow.

#43 Posted by MaccyD (3395 posts) - - Show Bio

He still has eye-make-up, so now he has that and the mask to put on during emergencies :P

So have they ever explained how Ollie has his voice modulated ? It's just like a thing that happens and I have no idea where it comes from

just surprised no one actually realized it was Oliver queen this entire time

i remember in season 2 episode 1 when some thugs kidnapped Thea and he rescued this one thug falling off the banister he was looking directly into Ollie's face i was like WTF do you not see who this guy is?

#48 Posted by ravisher (665 posts) - - Show Bio

now the goatee

#49 Posted by Lurkero (173 posts) - - Show Bio

It's about damn time he got a mask. The questionable practicality of the makeup was sometimes too much to bare.

Too bad they didn't give him a stylish mask. Some kind of techno-goggles would have been nice. This mask looks too cheap.

@fallschirmjager: What annoys me? I have the GA run up until the Lemire took over. I can't get that trade until the end of March. So I get to read Nocenti and pals. Yay.

As per the article, I get more and more hyped. Getting a better nickname the the Hood and a domino mask? Steps in the right direction.
