In case you've forgotten, there's a new superhero TV show coming this Fall. The CW will debut Arrow, a show based on Green Arrow, on October 10th at 8 pm ET/PT.

A poster for the show has been released but it looks like it might have been a little rushed.

Guess he forgot to put on his actual costume before this pic was taken. The show stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen and is under the creative control of Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter.

The synopsis appears to be sticking close to the actual comic origin with Ollie being marooned on an island and learning to survive on his own for five years. You can bet you'll be hearing a lot more about the show around here in the coming weeks.

Sooo, what was he attacked by?

#2 Posted by Reuelthomas (15 posts) - - Show Bio

That seems like it's distancing itself from the comics quite a bit.

A cross between Wolverine and a badger so horrible that no words could ever describe it.

That's good, get people that are buff, because superheroes are. The first right step.

looks like something bit him in the stomach.

#14 Posted by Happy_Evil_Dude (8 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't fugure out why they changed small things like him being referred to as "Arrow" instead of "Green Arrow" and the show being set in Starling City, not Star City. These changes are so insignificant, unnecessary and thus bothersome that it boggles my mind

I know the man's in shape, but really?

But what are the chances of viewers actually seeing all these really defined scars... Or is it just a metaphor?

#17 Posted by Icon (2044 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, TV shows like always get posters. That's not new. Anyway, really looking forward to this.

#28 Posted by BatWatch (2332 posts) - - Show Bio

Definitely looking forward to this. I just hope that Ollie is less of a douche bag than he is in the comics.

#29 Posted by Herx (366 posts) - - Show Bio

topless guy. yep, you can deffinatley tell that this is a CWE show :P

Im suprised that they actually gave him a beard in the trailers. I mean, it covered up that face for like 5 seconds :P

I joke, but im still interested in the show. :)

#30 Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7 (1005 posts) - - Show Bio

Not bad. And he's probably not in a costume because CW probably thinks the show, and the actor, is more marketable without one.

At first, this looked like one of the old "Got Milk" ads.

Well since he was marooned on an island I am going to guess the wily land shark.

Just like Batman. Tons of scars on his chest and back but not on his face or arms. What could be seen... lol

That would be pretty amazing. If Bruce Wayne was COMPLETELY MESSED UP in a perfect square on the lower half of his face.

#42 Posted by TheMess1428 (2176 posts) - - Show Bio

@SimonM7: That'd be pretty hilarious.

#43 Posted by TheMultiverse (121 posts) - - Show Bio

Honestly, my only nit pick so far is.. Why not call it Green Arrow?

I need the Errol Flynn look, damnit :( I'm still gonna watch this but man, just isn't the same without the Errol Flynn look, but then again Hartley didn't have it either. Ah well, I stand by what I said regardless.

oh come on guys, this is totally objectifying males. As males we should..... oh who am I kidding!

#49 Posted by blueninjapanther (664 posts) - - Show Bio

the scars are probably when he was in the island. I can't wait for this.
