The Arrow is getting a makeover. Oliver Gets a Heroic New Look
A new suit for the titular character was revealed at Arrow‘s Comic-Con panel on Saturday night.
Star Stephen Amell — who came out in his new “Green Arrow” duds — gave credit to Maya Mani, who has “made every single suit on our show since the original Arrow costume,” he said. “She nailed it.”
The new getup signals a big transformation for the titular hero. “We’ve always said the progression for Oliver is very much from the Arrow to Green Arrow,” executive producer Greg Berlanti described. “This is first real stop in that direction.”
With that evolution also comes a new attitude, although “the show isn’t going to suddenly become a comedy,” EP Andrew Kreisberg said. “When the season starts, he’s in much a better place. He’s happy. He’s in love. That feeling infuses all the characters. There’s a little bit more fun [and] more humor.”
Added EP Wendy Mericle: “We actually get to have Oliver make some jokes in the lair, which is a first,” and get to see what it’s like to have him in a relationship.
