DC Comic’s legendary character Green Arrow will be heading into his first small screen solo adventure this fall on the CW Network, but for now you can watch the first trailer to get a feel for the pilot that will star Stephen Amell and Katie Cassidy….
On 18 January, 2012, The CW greenlit the pilot for a proposed Green Arrow series with Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg producing. The series, Arrow, will offer a fresh take on the character. Smallville’s Justin Hartley will not be involved in the new project. Actor Stephen Amell will portray Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in the pilot.
In Arrow, Oliver Queen will be in his late twenties. Dinah Laurel Lance will also be a featured character, though not as the Black Canary and using her middle name “Laurel.” Oliver Queen’s mother Moira is still alive in the present day, with Oliver Queen returning to “Starling City” after people believed he was dead for five years. It has been recently reported that actress Katie Cassidy will portray Dinah Laurel Lance in the pilot episode. Colin Donnell is cast as Merlyn.
