They should use Green Arrow: Year One as the pilot.
Arrow isn't abt better than Green Arrow so I don't see the need to change the name.
The guy on Smallville wasn't very good so I'm glad they're changing that.
I hated that guy. And I hated that version of the Green Arrow.
I mean, don't get me wrong...I hate the Green Arrow (and Hawkeye), so in general, I'm just not a fan of the concept. But Smaville GA was just so...douchey. It was like, "nigga, you can't be talking shit to Superman when you haven't even caught on to the idea of gunpowder yet. So Clark's wasting his talents just sitting around the farm fucking Erica Durance? Just imagine how much more crime you could stop if you used your nigh-uncanny sense of aim with a gun."
Not really opposed to a GA TV series, because there's always the chance it won't suck, I reckon. But I certainly won't miss the Smallville version.
