‘Arrow’ Succeeds In Capturing The Spirit Of DC Comics Source Material


Airing tonight on The CW, ARROW is arguably one of this TV season’s more satisfying guilty pleasures. Inspired by the venerable DC comic book character THE GREEN ARROW, the story centers on billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, rescued from a remote island in the Pacific five years after being thought killed in a violent shipwreck. Returning to his home in Starling City, Queen secretly creates the persona of Arrow, a vigilante, to right the wrongs of his family and fight the ills of society. Created by GREG BERLANTI, the cast includes STEPHEN AMELL, PAUL BLACKTHORNE, COLIN DONNELL, SUSANNA THOMPSON and KATIE CASSIDY. Fielding questions at a recent Television Critics Association press conference, CW honcho MARC GUGGENHEIM talked about how the show hews closely to the spirit of its source material.
