Default Re: Green Arrow Series Coming to the CW? (Hartley not attached)

I would love a GA show that is based on the comic books where he has an actual relationship with Black Canary. It's the perfect opportunity to do a GA show that is comic book based and not a "new take" or "reimagining". That said, I also don't like the line about the show being set in a new world and not based in comics. Honestly, I think they should have gone with a different superhero altogether in order to avoid the mess.
I would accept a show like this set outside the Smallville universe too, if they adapted more from the comics, but they're not doing that, they're going to apparently do someting completelly original
