Can't wait till they foul up the Flash with this sort of thinking. Vomit.
Yep. They actually call him "The Hood".
However, they did say they want to give him the "Green Arrow" name at some point. They said Season 2 will be all about Oliver trying to find a new identity for himself and will become more like the Green Arrow of the comics. Not just a new identity as in a new name, but also as in the way he operates and does things.
Now whether or not they planned this from the beginning or are doing it due to backlash is something that remains unknown.
