    So he won't be known as Green Arrow then?

    Doesn't seem like it, can't say I particularly mind them shortening it to Arrow.

    Still sounds interesting enough to me; though at the same time it has that very CW vibe to it.

    Sounds interesting, at least there seems to be a better creative team attached to this than the Wonder Woman pilot.

    Guh? David E. Kelley? OK, so he might not have know what the hell he was doing with Wonder Woman, but he's made a hella lot more compelling television over the years the the people on Arrow.

    In other words, what StoneGold said.

    I meant as creative team for a superhero comic character based show, I am just comparing from the results of the Wonder Woman pilot, I did not intend to disparage David E. Kelly's work on other TV shows.

    I'll check it out, but I have very low expectations. I wish they'd release that WW pilot already, I'd love to see it.

    OK, that potentially works. But mostly, I wanted to post Denny Crane.

    "Green Arrow" is a better and more distinctive name than "Arrow". This smells like the "Birds of Prey" series. Stink.

    Err, you're using the fact that this show has an abbreviated version of the source material's name to say its going to stink.....like a show that used the exact same name as its source material?

    I mean, it might very well suck, but if so I doubt it'll be because of the name.
    My favorite character can beat up your favorite character.

    Loser.

    Such changes usually are good indicators of (1) someone has decided that by Gosh he's going to put HIS MARK on this show, so there will be all sorts of unneeded and unnecessary changes to justify someone getting a salary when really all they need to do the vast majority of the time is to open up a comic and say 'OK, storyboard is done'. Or, (2) someone has decided that they need to wash the 'comic book stink' off the character to make him appealing to Aunt Minnie in Peoria, so she won't get all confused and stuff.

    Eh, what do I know. I never would have bet in a million years that Smallville would last 10 years.
