Here’s the first look at the Green Arrow from CW’s new series “Arrow” based on the DC comics character Green Arrow. The costume was designed by Academy Award winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (Alice in Wonderland). And the series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Arrow. Amell has played continuing character is a number of high profile shows, including “Private Practice”, “Hung” and “New Girl”. At this time it appears the series has dropped the “Green” from the characters moniker. It also are no links to Oliver Queen/Green Arrow character featured in “Smallville” and played by Justin Hartley.
So what does everyone think of the TV series costume?
Yup, the much ballyhooed DC relaunch begins today. So this afternoon, head to your comics store, or get the first issue online or via your Comixology iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows Phone 7 app. As the ad above proclaims, Justice League #1 will be available online this afternoon at two o’clock.
We are still not sure of what we think about the relaunch. But we’re firmly behind the day-and-date digital release of the comics.
Check out this promo for the new CGI “Batgirl” television series! It aired after the season finale of “The Brave and the Bold”. Pretty cool, huh? Can’t wait?
Not so fast.

Here’s the cover for Superman #1 by Georges Perez. We must say we aren’t crazy about the costume changes. (Jim Lee was responsible for the redesign.) Superman’s costume is iconic. Leave it alone. Some have suggested these costume changes are a way to get around the court decision in DC’s case with Siegel and Shuster estates. We don’t think so. The changes we need to be more significant.
Superboy and Supergirl after the jump …
Superman usually gets in the mainstream press because he’s dying or getting married or changing his costume. But this week he’s all over the news for his political views. Yup, you read that right, his political views?!? Or, to be more precise, a discussed action. In this case, the notion that he’s going to renounce his American citizenship. This has caused a furor online and off. For a good rundown of all that you might want to look at Bleeding Cool’s coverage.

Stan Lee was on the set of Captain American: First Avenger yesterday and shared the experience with his fans via a series of tweets. He started by sharing this bit of news:
Marvel Studios has upgraded my cameo for the Captain America movie! They’ve given me one more word of dialogue than originally planned!
Underlined the point:
As you know, I never ever brag, but it’s obvious they must have felt a star such as I deserves a bigger role.
Then told us what this would mean:
Of course, that extra word of dialogue means I have to re-study my role. I’ve only a few hours before my eagerly anticipated performance
Then he informed us when the great event would come:
Harken ye, my warriors! The moment hath come. The director calls. All eyes my way do turn as upon the set doth fall an expectant hush.
Then wrapped the whole thing up:
Rejoice, my brave Brigadiers! Thy beloved Generalissimo hath returned from his hazardous Captain America cameo, victorious and unscathed!
Isn’t it embarrassing that an eighty-eight year-old man is better at using Twitter than everyone in Silicon Valley combined? That was meant as a rhetorical question. But if you have anything to say about this, share your thoughts in the comments section!
Okay, we’re getting excited about this now. We especially dig Reynolds’ first reading of the oath. He (cue emotional vocal tremble) had us at “brightest day”.
Bob Harras has been named as the new Editor in Chief at DC Comics. Harras was the Editor at DC’s competitor Marvel from 1995-2000. Since then he has been working at DC subsidiary Wildstorm, before moving into the DC collected editions division earlier this year. This seems to be a safe but uninspired choice. But at least they chose someone from the world of comics.
