First Thoughts: CW's Arrow

Finally got around to watching the preview trailer to the CW's new series Arrow; based on the DC Comics' Green Arrow character.

Just being a teaser we didn't get much, but it was enough to get us interested in seeing an episode or two if nothing more. Still too early for us to tell how this one will play out.

However we still have to wonder if the CW is doing the right thing. Think back a little less than a year ago and one of CW's biggest shows was Smallville; a show about a young Clark Kent (Superman). And in this show there was a Green Arrow; played by Justin Hartley, who in his own right was a fantastic Green Arrow.

It just seems that it would have made more sense to stick with what they already had; an established Green Arrow with backstory already in place, an easy way to bring in other heroes and guest stars, and probably the most important thing for any show, fans. A lot of people liked the Smallville Green Arrow.

What do you guys think? Should the CW have stuck it out with the Smallville version of Green Arrow? Or have they done the right thing by rebooting the character?
