Comics: Arrow Screenwriters Taking Over DC's Green Arrow In October

4 July 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

If you've been enjoying the excellent run on DC Comics' Green Arrow from writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino then I have bad news for you. Lemire and Sorrentino's last Green Arrow issue will be October's Green Arrow #35. The duo will have one more Green Arrow special, a one-shot titled, Futures End: Green Arrow #1, which will be released in September, but that their swan song. Replacing Lemire and Sorrentino will be Andrew Kreisberg and Ben Sokolowski of The CW Arrow. So is the Green Arrow comic book going to essentially turn into an extension of The CW television show (even though there's already a digital tie-in for the show)? Said Sokolowski, "This is more about cross-pollination. How can we incorporate what is working so well for Arrow into the New 52 Dcu, while at the same time, keeping what makes the original 2-D Oliver Queen so special? To »

Arrow Season 1 Episode 222 'Streets of Fire' Review: "I Have Failed This City"

9 May 2014 12:21 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Wow. Just...wow. 'Streets of Fire' picked up seconds after 'City of Blood' ended and didn't let up for an hour. There was action on multiple fronts, people died, and the focus shifted to what will be an incredible finale.

For now, here are the 6 Qs of this week's 'Arrow.'

1. What is it?

Arrow Ep. 2.22 “Streets of Fire” is more table-setting than storytelling

7 May 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Arrow Season 2, Episode 22 “Streets of Fire

Written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski

Directed by Nick Copus

Season finale airs Wednesday, 5/14 at 8pm Et on The CW

 

The last few weeks have seen a dramatic crescendo on Arrow, with Slade’s plan to destroy Oliver’s entire universe coming to light (or reveling in new found darkness, however you’d like to put it). With it has come a host of changes to Arrow‘s world: the death of Moira, Laurel learning the Arrow’s identity, and Thea’s disenchantment with her family and love life, major shifts in world dynamics that needed to occur to both push its characters into new stages of development, but also to neatly arrange the dominoes of the season’s endgame. “Streets of Fire” exists in the shadow of that endgame, an hour attempting to maintain momentum heading into the finale – but outside of a few inconsequential developments, »

Arrow Ep. 2.15 “The Promise” underwhelms at times with love triangle dramatics

6 March 2014 6:25 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Arrow Season 2, Episode 15 “The Promise”

Written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski

Directed by Glen Winter

Airs Wednesday nights at 8pm Et on The CW

 

Every time a character on Arrow mentions “the island”, I can’t help but shudder a bit. From the pilot episode, Arrow’s struggled mightily to make the many, many flashbacks to Oliver’s post-crash adventures engaging in any sort of way. Season two’s taken a small step forward, thanks to the introduction of Sarah and a genuine attempt to deepen the connection between Oliver and Slade in early episodes, but the material that takes place on the island and the freighter is constantly fighting to justify its presence, hanging onto superficial “reveals” to keep the audience interested, something “The Promise” tries to do in just about every single scene. When its not, it is trying to give dramatic weight to the show’s silliest »

The CW's 'Arrow' promises to change the game with biggest episode yet

5 March 2014 4:11 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) In a preview video posted last week by The CW, "Arrow" executive producer Marc Guggenheim stated the following about this week's installment, "The Promise": "This is the biggest episode we've ever done on the show to date." Those are very bold words from the veteran TV and comic book writer, and Cbr News spoke with him to find out exactly what he's so enthused about in the flashback-heavy episode written by Jake Coburn and Ben Sokolowski. Following the ending of last week's "Time of Death," which saw Oliver (Stephen Amell) discover that Slade (played by Manu Bennett and better known to DC Comics fans as Deathstroke) was not only alive but in Starling City and meeting with Moira (Susanna Thompson), "The Promise" is set to detail exactly how things went so terribly wrong between Oliver and Slade on Lian Yu. "Slade's presence just changes everything," Guggenheim told Cbr. »
