Deadshot Confirmed for The CW's Arrow

by SuperHeroHype

July 30, 2012

Oliver Queen hasn't even graced our TV screens yet and he's already building up quite the rogues gallery in his first season. Already confirmed for the show are DC villains Deathstroke and China White, but this weekend it was confirmed by ksitetv.com that Deadshot will be coming to the all new CW TV show. No word on who will be playing the character, but he is set to appear in the show's third episode appropriately titled 'Lone Gunman.'

GreenArrowTV caught up with star Stephen Amell and asked him how things are going to go down between Oliver Queen and Floyd Lawton: "Unfavorably, for Deadshot, I would suspect. I can tell you that they are going to be after some of the same people. Oliver does have a code. Obviously, it doesn’t include ‘no killing,’ as we’ve established so far, but there is a code. I don’t think Deadshot has it. I don’t think he respects his methods, which puts him in Oliver’s sights."

From Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern), Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13, Fringe) and David Nutter (Smallville, Supernatural, Game of Thrones), the hard-hitting action series reinvents the DC hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime. The series premieres Wednesday, October 10th at 8 PMET/PT

The series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.

Arrow's Deadshot Has Been Cast

by SuperHeroHype

July 31, 2012

Yesterday, we reported to you that Deadshot is set to appear in The CW's upcoming DC show Arrow. The character will appear in the third episode titled "Lone Gunman" and now we've got word (via TV Guide) that Michael Rowe (Not Dirty Jobs' Mike Rowe) will be playing the character.

When talking to Green Arrow TV about the character, producer Marc Guggenheim took the time to let the fans know he is in good hands.

"In the same way that the pilot is a more grounded and realistic take on the material, our Deadshot is a more grounded and realistic take on the character than the fully costumed and masked super-villain that you see in the comics. You’ll definitely see the red eye piece, which is the most distinctive, iconic feature of that character, and I will say that with no slam to Smallville intended, it’s a much more faithful version of Deadshot than the Deadshot that was in Smallville."

The series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.

Arrow premieres Wednesday, October 10th at 8 PM ET/PT.

Firestorm Coming to The CW's Arrow?

by SuperHeroHype

August 03, 2012

With China White, Deathstroke and Deadshot already confirmed for the new CW show Arrow, it looks like Oliver Queen will have his hands full, maybe to the point that he needs help? We've gotten word from Kabookit that Emily Bett Rickards has been cast in the show as Felicity Smoak. That name might not mean anything to some of you, but keen observers will realize that this is the stepmother of one half of the hero Firestorm, Ronald Raymond. The part is described as a recurring role so maybe we will get to see Ronnie sometime in the show; however, that would go against earlier claims by the show's staff and cast that "no one in Arrow has super powers."

From Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern), Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13, Fringe) and David Nutter (Smallville, Supernatural, Game of Thrones), the hard-hitting action series reinvents the DC hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime.

by SuperHeroHype

August 06, 2012

YVRShoots has some set pics from the upcoming CW series Arrow which you can see here. They said the crew was filming a sequence at CBC Vancouver late on Friday night that involved the Emerald Archer jumping through a window into a room where gun fire had recently erupted. Actor Michael Rowe, who was recently cast as Deadshot in the series, tweeted that he was on the set leading us to believe that a confrontation between the assassin and Green Arrow was being shot.

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.

The show premieres Wednesday, October 10th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Arrow Adds The Huntress

by SuperHeroHype

August 21, 2012

The series set to premiere on The CW in October, EW has learned that Arrow has made plans to add another popular DC Comics character to its cast, at least temporarily. Actress Jessica De Gouw will play The Huntress in a multi-episode arc.

Dating all the way back to Sensation Comics #68 in 1947, The Huntress has been reinvented quite a few times over the years. The magazine says that this take will be the Helena Bertinelli version of the character (who debuted in 1989) and that the casting occurred with the following official character description:

"Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father’s organized crime empire. But Helena’s blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow"

An alternate version of the character was the focus of the short-lived live-action television series "Birds of Prey," which ran on the WB in 2002. Ashley Scott played the Helena Wayne version of The Huntress, the Earth-Two daughter of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle.

De Gouw joins Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.

From Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern), Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg ("Warehouse 13", "Fringe") and David Nutter ("Smallville", "Supernatural", "Game of Thrones"), the hard-hitting action series reinvents the DC hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime.

The series premieres Wednesday, October 10th at 8 PM ET/PT.

Arrow is the Most Watched CW Show in 3 Years

by SuperHeroHype

October 11, 2012

The CW has announced the ratings for their new DC show Arrow and it looks like the premiere was quite successful. Here's the press release:

Last night's premiere of ARROW was right on target with the network's goal of broadening out and bringing new viewers to the network - it drew 4.02 million viewers, the most watched telecast on the network of any show, on any night, in three years (11/12/2009).

ARROW was the most watched premiere on the network since THE VAMPIRE DIARIES (9/10/2009).

This was the most watched show in the Wednesday 8PM time period in more than three years (5/13/2009)

Versus last year's premiere of H8R in the time period, it more than doubled its audience (4M vs. 1.3M) and was up 57% in A18-34 (1.1/4), and 117% in A18-49 (1.3/4)

The ARROW premiere also gave SUPERNATURAL a boost last night, it was SUPERNATURAL's most watched episode (2.6M) since 10/15/10, and was its best A18-34 rating since 3/4/11 (1.0/3)

Last night was The CW's best Wednesday night in total viewers (3.3M) in more than two years (5/12/10) and in two years in A18-34 (1.0/3, 12/10/10) and in A18-49 (1.2/10, 10/13/10)

ARROW tied NBC's original comedies in the 8-9PM hour in total viewers (4M) and in A18-34 and A18-49.


Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.

From Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter, the hard-hitting action series reinvents the DC hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime.

The show airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT. You can watch the pilot online by clicking here.

So who watched it on here?

I liked it. It's a pretty gritty take on the character, but then again, I'm not a big GA fan, but he may have been portrayed this way before.

Spoiler: show
Right off the bat, DEATHSTROKE!!! Hope it turns into something real and not just an Easter egg. And, wow, Ollie kills when he has to. Has he done this before? Any Ollie experts in the house? I know things went dark during the Long Bow Hunter days, but did they get that dark? What other cameos were there? I recognize Merlyn, but that's about it. Who's the chick with the white hair in next weeks episode?


Nice work with the Parkour. Hope to see more of that in the future.

I don't know much about the character in comics either. But I really enjoyed the show. There was another easter egg in that his sister's nickname is Speedy.

All the DC fans on this board and nobody's talking about this show? :shock:

I'm really enjoying it. It's a lot darker than Smallville and (so far) the action scenes are pretty darn good. The recent episode with Deadshot was much more true to the character than the Smallville episode.

Of course,
Spoiler: show
Ollie made short work of Deadshot with an arrow to the friggin' eye! Ouch.
