It seems that the lead role in CW’s planned TV series about DC character the Green Arrow has been filled.
Deadline is reporting that Stephen Amell, who has appeared in shows such Hung, 90210 and The Vampire Diaries, will play the “27-year-old bad boy, who after having spent five years shipwrecked on a tiny, brutally dangerous island in the South China Sea returns to town a different man”.
Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg are supposedly the men behind Arrow which would concentrate on Oliver Queen and his double life as a billionaire and the expert archer and costumed hero.
Created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp, the Green Arrow first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 in November 1941.
Elsewhere in the DC universe, plans for a Booster Gold pilot is believed to be in development.
