The first image of Jessica De Gouw as the Iconic Huntress has been released.
Take a look:

Am I on glue or does she look a little too much like Selina Kyle from The Dark Knight rises?
Sigh...

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Australian up and coming actress Jessica De Gouw has been cast a Helena Bertinelli on the upcoming Green Arrow series that will premiere on October 10.

Bellow is a text taken multiple pages from the web:

"Fans have known for awhile that The CW's Arrow will come stocked with villains like Deathstroke, Merlyn and Deadshot for Stephen Amell to face as Oliver Queen on the soon-to-debut live action series, but now it appears he could be getting some help in his fight against crime in Starling City care of a certain hero from Gotham. Entertainment Weekly reports that relative newcomer Jessica De Gouw has joined the cast of Arrow as the Helena Bertinelli version of Huntress.

According to Arrow's official character description for Huntress, "Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father's organized crime empire. But Helena's blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow."

Judging from this description, this version of Huntress is pretty in line with her pre New 52 status quo, which is interesting considering how many versions of the character have existed across various DC Comics continuities and their respective adaptations in TV, animation and video games.

The whole "potential love interest" thing could prove vexing to fans rooting for Laurel Lance (played by Katie Cassidy) and Oliver Queen to follow their comic book counterparts' lead in the ways of romance. Of course, it remains to be seen if the show's version of Laurel Lance will wind up with a Black Canary persona... although CA's own Andy Yen had some potentially spoiler-y thoughts on the matter after catching a version of the Arrow pilot at SDCC last month.

Arrow debuts on The CW on October 10, and Huntress is expected to show up around episode six (probably in November) and continue to appear through a multi-episode arc."

What do you guys think?
Isnt she a bit too young and sweet looking for the role?
She is beautiful, not doubt but she doesnt have anything that says "Helena" to me...
I have a hard time believeing she can beat multiple men up.
Guess well have to wait and see :iconthinkingplz:

Actually its a good show. I have to separate myself from DC continuity to enjoy it. But seeing DeathStroke and some robbers resembling the Royal Flush Gang its entertaining. Sorry for the spoilers for anyone yet to view the show.

I haven't seen the show, but a superheroine can look young and sweet when she starts her crime fighting career, so she can portray idealism and naive hopes from the onset.

Later, as a fully mature superheroine in her 30s, she no longer has to fight that image.

Our comic books are perpetually stuck in a history-agnostic phase where the superheroes and superheroines all look timeless.

Huh... yeah I'm seeing some simularities... is it so hard for live-action superhero media to give people with purple in their costumes something close to their usual look? They can still look badass...

What, an example of another hero that had their purple omitted or a live-action example of badass purple attire? Because the latter is pretty tricky when no-one is giving the idea a shot.

Batgirl in the Adam West show did, and it looked rather silly

Everything in the Adam West show did, that's not really definitive proof that purple costumes can't work any more than it's proof any and all batman stuff will look goofy in live-action.

The pilot episode was terrible, and the second made me recoil in horror. Nothing in this show has done anything for me except convinced me that CW's creative teams are just saying "Hey, Nolan's Batman was great, let's just use all his ideas!" Arrow is nothing like Green Arrow ought to be, Huntress isn't even in the right city, Dinah isn't Black Canary... Blegh. For Wonder Woman's sake I hope this doesn't get renewed for a second season and they reconsider making a show about her.

Exactly! Or at the very least black hair and very dark purple outfit.

One thing this one has and Ashley S. did not was the crossbow, so they got one thing right ha.

Black hair would have helped. I would have liked it more fluffy, too -- more...Italian. Is that the word? I would have liked some purple, yes. And a gold cross.

My favourite Huntress costume was always YEAR ONE: [link] , [link]

AnyaUribe Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
Ethnic perhaps, because these days when you say "italian" the worst examples come to mind :iconsnookiplz: :iconscaredplz:

You know? Your favorite costume seems to be the most fitting choice for live action purposes.
Minus the cape of course :D

My fav is her 90s costume.
The one she wore in her brief JLA run.

Die, Snooki, die!

Hey, she's part of the Bat Family. She should have a cape. That's another thing about this ARROW Huntress I don't like. Where's the cape?

The 90s costume is beautiful, too! But always preferred the ears on her mask.

:iconanyauribe:
AnyaUribe Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
But live action removes all the liberties animation and Illustration have.

Imagine how unpractical and how much of a disadvantage it would be in combat to wear a cape.

Unless it had all the benefits that Bat has with his: heat resistant, bullet deflecting. etc.

Hrmmm she does look a lot like Selina from TDKR maybe if they gave her a dark purple jacket with light grey bands instead? However if she in the plotline along the way brings out the Black Canary in Laurel then that's a plus for me :D

No doubt "Love interest" means they'll draw out plots of him deciding between Huntress and Canary.

Kinda annoying that every hero HAS to have a love interest or several love interest. It's like hey girls will only watch the show if the hero has a girlfriend...>.>
How about hero just kicks butt, and gets a female partner from time to time. Or reversed if this show was called the Huntress.

Agreed except Helen wont be his love interest, this Huntress seems like a teenager.
A highly trained vigilante teenager.

Dinah tho will be his love interest.

Altho in Ollies case, well the thing is.. he is a bit of a .. whore :D
So more than one for him is plausable :lmao:

But youre right, it does nothing for the character :giggle:

However, Ashley Scott was awesome as Helena! :D
Im a HUGE fan of Ashley.
Saddly they didnt give her any real good material to work with but given the proper equipment, she could easily become the best Huntress!
