An Open Letter To The Creators Of Arrow

Chad White, Wants To Workout With Stephen Amell, Had Horrible Protein Farts Writing This


Dear Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg,

You do not know me but I know you. Wait, I’m sorry. That came off way too creepy. What I meant to say was I love you guys. Okay. Now it’s just weird. Let me start over.

Hello. How are you?

Damnit, you won’t be able to respond to that. Alright, final time, I promise.


Let me begin by saying that the show you three have created, Arrow, is by far one of the best shows I have ever seen. I’ve haven’t been so engaged in a drama for a while. This show has everything that I want in a superhero based TV series: action; adventure; sex; really, really ridiculously good looking people and so many more attributes that I want to type but can’t because my palms are too sweaty.

I want to give a big thanks to the writers who have done a phenomenal job with the series. Every episode matters and characters are always given something to do. The island backstory is given enough time to develop but the audience is only given just enough to keep them coming back for more. The way characters are also introduced is just astounding. That multi episode arc with the Flash was so good, it made me love my number one favorite superhero (duh, the Flash) even more. Even the introductions of important mainstays in the Green Arrow’s history like the Black Canary and Roy Harper or some of Batman’s rogue gallery of villains such as Ra’s al Ghul and a Harley Quinn cameo stand out as among the best things in visual comic media.

Get to the point, Chad.

Well, I’m writing this heartfelt, albeit, jumbled letter to offer you my services as a character that I believe you should introduce: Cyborg. Think about it. You could set up a live action Teen Titans episode. The kids in the group could be inspired by Ollie/Arrow and what he’s doing. A field trip from Gotham to Starling could be the whole set up.

I really like Cyborg. A guy that’s made of computer parts and works out AND is black? Sign me up! But in all seriousness, I want to be a part of this big movement in the DC Universe. Marvel owns movies, at the moment, but I can see that DC is ready to put up a fight. DC Comics has always had the best shows with Smallville, Justice League, Static Shock and so many others. Marvel has yet to have a cartoon, or even live action show, that can hold a candle to the likes of Batman: The Animated Series. All of these shows connect in a modern way too.

They just so happen to take place in the same universe. That’s what Marvel is doing so well right now. Man of Steel is the first step with this whole cinematic universe that’s all the rage these days. After the sequel, there’s no doubt the Justice League movie can do the same things The Avengers did. Stephen Amell standing next to Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck is going to be the coolest thing I will see in my life, ever.

But, for now, we start small. And here I am. You can’t get any smaller than this. Give me a chance to be part of the biggest thing in DC history.

P.S. I included an audition tape. I promise, it gets better. No really it does.
