Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have green lit the development of yet another superhero television project; this time focusing on the emerald archer who made his live-action debut on the long running Smallville series.
Created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp and first appearing in 1941, Green Arrow (whose secret identity is billionaire Oliver Queen) is an archer who dresses like Robin Hood and patrols the streets of Star City. He creates and utilizes trick arrows with various special functions to deal out vigilante justice that conforms with his left-wing, ultra-democratic principles. In 2006, Justin Hartley began portraying the character on Smallville and eventually starred in over 70 episodes.
Green Lantern movie screenwriters Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim are on board as executive producers/writers for the planned Green Arrow TV series, though Justin Hartley is not involved. Berlanti and his production company are also behind two of the aforementioned DC TV properties currently being developed
