Here’s the First Pic of Deadshot from Arrow, a TV Series That May Possibly Be Related to a Comic Book (Probably Not)



After the featurette we all enjoyed so much this morning, in which we learned that Arrow is a superhero story EXCEPT IT’S TOTALLY REAL and has comic book origins TO A VERY SMALL, ALMOST NON-EXISTENT DEGREE, The CW has released this pic of Michael Rowe as the assassin Deadshot, or, as I like to call his Arrow counterpart, “Shot.” I knew he wasn’t going to have a mask — actors hate masks — but I’m a little impressed he even has the little eye thingie. I think we should probably count it as a win. (Via superheroHype)
