Forget the character from Smallville. The CW is preparing a reboot of DC’s The Green Arrow and we’ve got the first image!

The “Arrow” pilot is currently in production, written by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg and directed by David Nutter. The latter was the director of the pilot and first episodes of Smallville as well as many other genre fiction favorites like Supernatural and The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Deadline Hollywood quotes Nutter: “When I directed the pilot for Smallville, I knew that making Clark Kent relatable would be the key to audiences believing in him as a hero. Arrow is a different show — darker and harder-edged — but it’s the same core idea.”

We can’t wait. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
