It’s been a while since I’ve worked on a Super Sunday post so this Green Arrow draft sat in my folder for months where it remained… until now. I was a fan of this character in Smallville (even before I knew who he was) but wasn’t a big fan of his costume at the time. His gadgets and weapon of choice kind of made up for it though as well as the actor they used to portray him.
Then with the new Arrow series, I’ve been able to watch the first two episodes and I’m liking what I see. David Nutter (who also directed Smallville’s pilot episode) wanted more of a darker undertone for the series – much like the Dark Knight movies – and the new costume certainly fits this idea.
However, with such a limited choice of bows in the game, I decided to wait until some new designs were added. A while ago, Cool linked this unique model which made me think of Green Arrow again so following the darker and harder-edged version of the series, I gave it another go. Turns out, the design didn’t quite fit with what I had in mind but feeling inspired, I had a play anyway.
Update: Season 4 is airing soon so to celebrate his new costume, here’s an updated model and suit.
