YUP. It’s Justin Hartley as the uber-hunk millionaire Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. And he’s back for Smallville season 8… as a series regular! Which means, we will see more of him on the show. Justin Hartley has a talent holding deal with CW, which means the network is paying him to stick around since they don’t want to lose him to another network. Good for us, right? And good for Clark Kent too!
If Clark Kent has a big brother, it would be Oliver Queen (and not Lex Luthor!). Several times in the past seasons, Oliver had challenged Clark to use his powers for doing mankind good, and not just hang around Smallville waiting for lightning to strike. Oliver has seen some of Clark’s powers but he still doesn’t know Clark’s true identity. I think if he does, the hero in green tights would push for his younger bro’ to wake up and gets his arse off the Smallville farm. Who knows, the Green Arrow just might save Clark from the clutches of Lex Luthor at the Fortress. But that’s just my speculation. Who knows what the writers come up with. I’m just really happy to know there is another regular superhero on Smallville. The Justice League is back again!
