    For me dour and humorless, really don't equal fun.

    I'd say the show is very humorous in a good way

    I just don't get what they have against calling him Arrow.I mean even in the Hulk's 70's show (which pretty much discarded any and all comic book references) they had sense enough to have Mcgee actually call him "The Hulk".

    I don't think Ollie gives a **** what people call him, so unless he starts telling people to call him that there's no reason for them to know it.

    Honestly, seeing as they want to drag out the origin for five years, it'll probably either happen in the season finale or some time in season two.

    I'm guessing they'll actually call him "Green Arrow" at the end of the series,but I expected them to just call him "Arrow" by now.

    No, he'll never be called Green Arrow, it's too comic book-ish according to the showrunners. I know, who'd have thought something based on a comic book would be comic book-ish.

    You're probably right.I was just taking "smallville-ization" into account.I figured maybe the last shot having a newspaper headline saying "Green Arrow sightings continue" just so they can say,"see,he had to become green arrow during the series" or some such nonsense.:oldrazz:

    so is anybody going to even acknowledge the pics that were posted? you know, the pics of the character for whom this thread was created...
    anyway, I like the direction they went, I wonder if they'll give him an eastern european accent, to honor the count aspect of his character.

    ^I would be good if they avoided the accent unless the actor can do it convincingly. The actors trying to act italian in the last episode was tough enough to watch, lol.

    Vertigo's never had a great costume so whatever they do is fine with me. Although I do remember the batman cartoon wasn't bad.

    The guy looks fine. He can do a sort of eastern european accent if he wants, but doesn't have to. They can just explain it by saying he was schooled in the states and part of the U.K. which explains him not having a thick accent or something. I think he will be fine.

    They're not going to do that, because he's not Vertigo.

    Starling City's reckoning is brought to you by the letter V.

    in all seriousness though, can't wait for this episode, it sounds really cool.

    All the eps have been good though. Each time I get excited about an episode the next ep makes me even more excited lol.

    Nevermind, I saw the pics of how they're doing his character. I still think it'd be cool if he shows up in later episodes in a green, and black suit to match his comics counterpart better.

    I agree with this. Or his father comes and is the REAL Count Vertigo. Either way I think his character is fine.

    There are set pics of Arrow's version of Vertigo ?!?!?!

    I'm excited to see how they re-interpret the character. I originally thought that Vertigo was involved in the upper-class conspiracy/list that papa Queen was also part of.

    Instead, it's Merlyn who's heavily involved with the List.

    Now that another character has fit the niche of upper-class aristocratic villain, I guess they chose to re-interpret Vertigo as a Joker-type villain.

    I think its funny that Seth Gabel also admitted to using Wikipedia as a reference, lol.
