Stephen Amell Irked by Arrow Rip-Off Alyas Robin Hood?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Dark hooded vigilante that prowls the night with bow and arrows as his weapon of choice.

The brain-drain for prime time shows continue. This is making me cringe! Barry Allen, or the Flash, must have fucked up the timeline and created the Alyas Robin Hood universe. Lol!

Whether they like it or not, this show would be ripped to shreds for being an Arrow ripoff. C'mon man! There are lots of local heroes waiting to be discovered.

Stephen Amell, the actor portraying the superhero Green Arrow on CW Network's TV Series known as Arrow, personally reacted to GMA Network's upcoming TV series entitled Alyas Robin Hood. Most of the comments states that GMA's TV series doesn't have originality and even the design and concept were just copied, especially the promotional but rumored-to-be fan-made poster which came out showing Dingdong Dantes wearing a similar outfit worn by Amell in his role as Green Arrow.

'Uulitin ko para malinaw po: ang lumabas na artikulo mula sa Lionheart tv na may kasamang poster daw ng Alias Robin Hood ay misleading kasi ang ginamit na poster doon na rip off mula sa Arrow ay hindi po materyal na galing sa Gma7. Hindi po ata ito niresearch na mabuti ng nasabing blog page at inassume agad na ito ay mula sa Gma7. 
Ang nasabing poster po ay maaaring fan made. O di kaya ay ginawa lang para siraan din ang Alias Robin Hood para palitawin itong rip off ng Arrow. So useless na pagdebatehan na ito ay rip off kasi hindi sa Alias Robin Hood ang nasabing poster. 
Wala pa po kaming inilalabas na poster nito liban sa teaser na napanood na sa aming network. 
Ibang iba po ang kwento ng Alias Robin Hood sa Arrow. Malayo.
Ang Alias Robin Hood ay homage / inspired sa Robin Hood, at ito ay Filipino modern retelling nito lalo't ang nasabing Briish Folktale na tumatalakay ng social injustice ay napapanahon pa rin. Hindi ito gaya sa Arrow (na palagay ko ay mula sa Green Archer/Robin Hood at Batman hehe) o sa Green Archer na pawang mga inspired din sa dakilang obra na Robin Hood pero binigyan din nila ng ibang twist.
Salamat po!" - Suzette Severo Doctolero
The writer 's statement implies that there was failure of a certain blog to state that the poster was fan-made and did not came from GMA 7 or was probably created to give Alyas Robin Hood a bad image.

English Translation from the page of the writer herself, Ms Suzette Severo Doctolero:

"For the record and again the article that came out from a showbiz site accompanied with a poster associating "Alyas Robin Hood" IS MISLEADING because the poster that was ripped off from the Hit TV series Arrow is not in anyway associated with GMA7. 
It is possible that the said material is fan made or was created to spread rumors against "Alias Robin Hood" to make it look like it ripped off Arrow. It is useless to debate that it is a ripoff because the said poster is not a material used nor created by GMA7. We haven't released any poster or any print ads except for the show's teaser which can be viewed on GMA7. Alias Robin Hood is a homage/ Robin Hood Inspired show, it is a Filipino modern retelling of the said British Folk Hero, especially the said folk tale tackles social injustice which is sadly felt in this modern age, it is not like Arrow or Green Archer that were also inspired by the great Folk tale that is Robin Hood. Salamat po! (Thank You!)"

GMA 7 writer Suzette Doctolero called someone "gago" online over criticisms on "Alyas Robin Hood." Shouldn't GMA Corp Comm intervene?

It was said that Dingdong Dantes has no stunt doubles in this upcoming primetime series which will feature the story of Robin Hood with a Filipino touch. Will this be enjoyed by the viewers who would like to know how the creators will present the Pinoy version? Probably out of curiosity, but for sure this will be merely a source of a lot of laughter in the end after seeing how the Pinoy TV series rips off the concept from the original.

For sure, there will be several variations from the original but this copycat will surely wiggle its way out with so many excuses like referencing Robin Hood instead of Arrow which is obviously the more popular topic known by the current generation rather than the story of Robin Hood, or the Green Archer.

GMA 7 should realize that the popularity of "Arrow" would obviously connect to Alyas Robin Hood since it's the most recent image of the original, may it be Robin Hood or any other hooded hero with a bow and arrow. It is not surprising that people will think first of Arrow, and accuse Alyas Robin Hood as a copycat even if the story is totally different.

LionhearTV should not have used GMA 7's logo in their own poster because it somehow implies that they are in partnership with the TV station in the creation of the poster, or even the TV series itself.

Alyas Robin Hood will also feature, Megan Young, Andrea Torres, Paolo Contis, Sid Lucero, John Feir, Lindsay De Vera and Jacklyn Jose.

"My name is Dingdong Dantes. After five years in hell, I came back with only one goal: to save my city. But my old approach wasn't enough. I had to become someone else. I had to become something else... I had to become Robin Hood."
