‘Arrow’ Score: ‘Our Version Of The Dark Knight,’ Says EP
Green Arrow targets the small screen October 10th at 8pm, and like all good superheroes, Arrow hits the bull’s-eye in the music department. CW gives you a closer look in the creation of Arrow’s beautiful, yet haunting, score in a featurette.
Co-Writers and Executive Producers, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim talk about the tone of the show and how composer Blake Neely captured the essence with a “cinema quality score.”
Upon creating the music, Neely was hesitant in which direction to take. He says, “Unless I go really dark, and really, you know like, Dark Knight-ish and that kind of new modern sound on superheroes, it could be campy.” But have no fear! Guggenheim suggested to go dark. The result is an eery sound that throttles your pulse.
Kreisberg says Arrow is “our version of The Dark Knight and Man of Steel every week.” And the best part, you don’t need to go to a theater to see Green Arrow. Lounge at home every Wednesday to catch a show that’s reminiscent of your favorite superhero films.
I’ll be watching. Will you?
