Arrow-dynamics, Streamlining Green Arrows Jump to TV

This week a new teaser trailer for The CW’s Arrow has been released, giving us more insight into the backstory, art direction, and (hopefully) overall style of the upcoming show. We are treated to some island shots of his origin, the first shot of one of his trick arrows, a quick action sequence of close quarters combat (which shows just how a guy with a bow and arrow can evade and take down those with guns), some humor, and the obligatory hero shots; that’s a lot to take in in just 30 seconds!

The survivalist aspect during Ollie’s island exile has been GA’s origin story since Jack Kirby; but it was really brought out and set the tone for our modern age understanding of the emerald archer In Andy Diggle & Jock’s Green Arrow Year 1. Just watching the few island shots we were privy to in this teaser it’s clear that from the beginning that the CW is trying to appeal to existing fans by at least acknowledging his comic roots story wise and stylistically.
