For those of us who were massive fans of Smallville this is pretty amazing news. After the failed attempt of the Aqua Man pilot and the more recent Wonder Woman show DC and CW are at it again with a rather epic looking Green Arrow series.
In favor of leaving Smallville in the past no matter how good it was this wont be a spin off but an all new stand alone series.
So far the first season script is complete and a screen tests with Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen / Green Arrow in the series. What excites fans the most will be the addition of David Nutter to direct the pilot. David was the brains behind the Smallville pilot, Sarah Connor Chronicles and some of the bloodiest bits of Game of Thrones.
The new series is titled “Arrow” and is set to be darker than Smallville as Oliver Queen had a no mercy policy when it comes to crime.
Fans who wanted a Smallville spin off may be slightly disappointed but it’s likely some of his Smallville background will leak through.

The first series of Arrow was very much inspired by the Dark Knight movies but looking at the latest promo for season 2 this run could totally rival Batman movies.
With a legendary ending to the first season Arrow will be back with what will be an even bigger second series with even more ties to the DC comics. CW have just announced the air date for the start of the second series.
Moving into episode three of CW’s Arrow the death count of villains continues to grow this time adding DC comics super villain Deadshot to the list of bad guys Arrow has brought to justice.
It’s official the Arrow TV show was inspired partly by Christopher Nolans Batman movies, but its cool because it works pretty well.
The first episode of Arrow has just aired on CW and as the latest TV show based on one of DC comics icons its made big waves, Arrow is well worth keeping an eye on.
Thanks to CW we have a new extended Arrow trailer which makes the series look epic. After Smallville made it to the ten season mark we might actually have another super DC TV series.
When Smallville finished it wasn’t clear what DC could do to fill the spot. Wonder Woman was a major flop and the Green Arrow may be the dark horse of TV shows this year.
The new series. has been created by Jeremy Slater with Mohamed Diab directing the first few episodes. Oscar Isaac will be playing Marc Spector aka the Moon Knight.
Clark Kent / Superman and Lois Lane return to Smallville with their sons Jonathan and Jordan. It’s a new take on Superman and we see a side to him we’ve not seen before in a live action movie or show.
