ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, new details about 'Avengers 2' are spilled, new rumors about 'Batman vs. Superman' arise, and 'Arrow' casts a bunch of new actors.
Just when you thought 'Arrow' season 3 had only a few more castings in its tank before the October premiere, The CW's DC-adapted drama adds even more familiar faces to fan-friendly roles. Latest to enter the fray are 'Supernatural' alum Amy Gumenick in the loving role of DC villain Cupid, and 'Glee' star Nolan Funk as a face from Felicity's past.
'Arrow' season 3 fans have been eagerly anticipating a certain major DC casting, to the point we hadn't noticed one of its existing roles in jeopardy. To wit, where previously 'Sin City' star Devon Aoki had been cast in the role of DC superhero Katana, we've now learned that 'The Wolverine' sword-slinger Rila Fukushima will replace Aoki in the role when 'Arrow' season 3 debuts this fall.
Fans of The CW's 'Arrow' have been on pins and...well, arrows in waiting for the casting announcement of Ra's al Ghul, but the League of Assassins head won't be the last DC villain to cross paths with Oliver Queen this year. The latest to enter the fray is 'Tron: Legacy' star Matt Ward as DC archer Komodo, while we've also learned that Felicity backstory episode "Oracle" may not have as significant a title as we'd hoped.

The CW's 'Arrow' made some season 3 waves with the news that dastardly DC villain Ra's al Ghul would show his face as our new big bad, but the hit superhero drama still has a few new characters to add before we learn what actor heads the League of Assassins. In the meantime, 'Medium''s David Cubitt has joined 'Arrow' season 3 in the role of DC's Manhunter, alongside 'NYPD Blue' alum Charlotte Ross as Felicity's mother.
Believe it or not, there was a time when Iron Man was a C-list superhero who no one outside of a small niche particularly cared about.
And then Robert Downey Jr. was cast in 'Iron Man' and the Marvel cinematic universe exploded, instantly becoming one of the definitive franchises of the 21st century
This past weekend saw The CW's 'Arrow' dropping plenty of season 3 intel, between its Ballroom 20 panel, fresh new trailer and a surprise villain announcement, but the emerald archer still has a few arrows left in his quiver. Joining the extensive roster of DC figures in season 3 is 'Emily Owens' and 'Power' star J.R. Ramirez, playing the 'Arrow' incarnation of Ted Grant, also known as DC superhero Wildcat!
