A look at movies, especially films based on books (Yes that includes comics); Opinions, facts, movie charts, production news and, when possible a look at the movies VS their source material. I may also champion books I've read that really should be movies. I've also used it to display the unedited versions of my blogs for SyFy; (The sci-fi channel UK website.)Feel free to let me know about any stories that you think deserve the big screen treatment.

Green Arrow is cast: Stephen Amell is to play the Super Hero in the new TV series...
Green Arrow is one of DC comics better known characters: all
the more so after major parts in both the animated series Justice League
Unlimited and Smallville (played by Justin Hartley).
Amell; as seen in Hung.
Arrow is a pilot, with a series naturally hoped for at the
end, for US TV network the CW. Although Smallville was also on that channel
this show will have no connection to that one. According to Deadline Canadian
actor Stephen Amell will take up the title role of Green Arrow, A.K.A Oliver
Queen; a billionaire who turns his mind to environmental and other political
ideal; as well as costumed adventuring with a variety of conventional and "trick" arrows. See pic below.) The tale is expected to be updated.
