Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.
DC's slate of Arrowverse shows is ever-expanding, and so is the list of actors who almost snagged a role. Which Arrowverse superheroes were almost played by someone else?
This is the second time Brandon Routh portrays a superhero, here he stars as Ray Palmer/the Atom after starring as Clark Kent/Superman in Superman Returns (2006).
My name is Oliver Queen. After five years on a hellish island, I have come home with only one goal: to save my city. But to do that, I can't be the killer I once was. To honor my friend's memory, I must be someone else. I must be something else.
In the promotional picture for the series it shows a shirtless Oliver. The scars from his time on the island are visible, but there is no tattoo. During the series Oliver has a tattoo on his chest, a tattoo that plays an important role in at least one episode (1x03 "Lone Gunmen") and has been visible in every other episode.
The DC Comics logo is colored green and features a comic-book image of Green Arrow.
