Deadline reports a Green Arrow pilot is in development at The CW (deadline.com) but not affiliated with the people who produced Smallville. It is being run by some of the people who produced the Green Lantern feature film. Nor is Justin Hartley, who played Oliver Queen on Smallville, involved.

It'll just be called Arrow and will not be linked to the character from Smallville or to what's happening in the current comics, where Green Arrow is a "James Bond meets Steve Jobs" global crimefighter backed by the technology of Q-Core.

Huh.

It seems like a bad idea to produce a Green Arrow show when Smallville and Justin Hartley are both so fresh on the minds of viewers. But other than that, I like the idea. Ollie Queen's always been one of DC's more interesting characters...when you put aside the terrible Judd Winick runs, of course.

Whatever happened to the "Green Arrow locked up in Super Max prison" movie?

So, basically, they are turning the current series into a TV show.

I'm cool with that.

That is, without question, a Warner Brothers initiative. "Nothing we do should be in any way connected to anything else we do. Otherwise, people who like things will get confused and stop liking things." Those people couldn't cross-promote themselves out of a paper bag.

Basically, they are in fact not doing that.

To borrow a line from the Funkasaurus, they are doing two things with that: nothing and loving it.

I can't imagine it being worse than Smallville, but Green Arrow was one of the few bright spots of that show, so who knows. Why not do Emerald Knights with Green Arrow and Green Lantern? We all know there is very little chance of Green Lantern 2 coming soon or at all. Make it a buddy show with some of the other DC characters. At least we get Sinestro Corp. War or Blackest Night since Arrow's rogue gallery is pretty small.

Yeah, they might as well use someone in GL's rogues gallery. Marvin and Wendy from the old SuperFriends cartoon could take this group. (OK, not Deathstroke, but the rest of them.)

And the comic will get Ann Nocenti as the new writer. Nice potential spotlight for her.

I have been waiting for her debut on the comic ever since I heard about her taking over at #7. I have never been excited about Green Arrow before - I am now.
