DC Showcase: Green Arrow is a 2010 short animated film, directed by Joaquim Dos Santos and written by Greg Weisman, featuring Neal McDonough as Green Arrow, who must protect a young princess at an airport. The film, which was released on September 28, 2010 as a bonus feature on the Superman/Batman: Apocalypse DVD, was the third of the DC Showcase series and was included on the compilation DVD DC Showcase Original Shorts Collection in an extended version.[1]


Green Arrow waits outside an airport for the arrival of his girlfriend, Dinah. He was delayed in traffic due to the arrival of Princess Perdita.

Count Vertigo has hired Merlyn to assassinate Perdita, who is Vertigo's niece. Perdita will soon become queen of Vlatava following her father's assassination by her uncle. As Merlyn attacks his target, Green Arrow discovers the plan and is forced to intervene. He dispatches several of Merlyn's henchmen before getting Perdita to a place of safety. He is forced to duel Merlyn himself, and defeats him.

Count Vertigo arrives and attempts to kill both the hero and Perdita, incapacitating them. Dinah, revealed to be Black Canary, arrives at that moment and knocks Count Vertigo unconscious with her "Canary Cry". Afterwards, Green Arrow proposes marriage to Black Canary. Canary accepts Green Arrow's proposal and they share a passionate kiss.
