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?
