First picture of The Green Arrow from CW's new superhero series Arrow

Here it is — the first look at the new superhero series Arrow, all about the rich boy who's survived on an island, only to become a hooded vigilante, the Green Arrow. Here is your very first look at main character Stephen Amell (Hung, New Girl) in the infamous green hood, and with a bit of the Arrow beard as well!

If you're wondering how this series will fit into the DC TV world, Smallville alum and Arrow executive producer David Nutter says, "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're creating a real, believable world in which Oliver Queen can do incredible things. Colleen Atwood's great work on the Arrow costume reflects that effort." So a darker Smallville? Maybe, we'll see.

For those of you unaware, here is the official synopsis:

After being marooned for five years on a remote island, former billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime.
