Ladies and gentlemen, Ra's al Ghul has arrived! After two seasons of 'Arrow' teasing, an epic Comic-Con 2014 reveal trailer and more, the DC drama has finally cast its iconic DC baddie. Per series star Stephen Amell, meet the new head of the League of Assassins, Ra's al Ghul, as played by 'Riddick' star Matt Nable!
Yesterday saw 'Arrow' season 3 opening its quiver a bit with the first photos from October 8 premiere "The Calm," as well as a sexy new trailer for Oliver and Felicity. As it turns out, photos were only the tip of the arrow, as The CW has released a brand-new full-length season 3 trailer teasing more Olicity action, Arsenal, the Atom, Vertigo, Komodo and more!
The CW's proposed 'Supernatural' spinoff may not have panned out, nor do we have any idea when the series itself may come to a close, but after the ninth season finale's shocking final second twist, the Winchester boys are in for a hell of a ride in the October 7 premiere. See Dean adjusting to his new life, while Sam looks the worse for wear in our first photos from season 10 premiere "Black"!
It's been a day for DC TV to be sure, but nothing quite gets geek blood flowing like a new look at 'Arrow' season 3! Check out "The Calm" with our first new photos from the October 8 season premiere, plus a brand-spankin' new teaser that ships some major "Ollicity" movement, and reveals a major character's violent new path!
We've always adored 'Arrow''s effort at crowd-pleasing casting, and it seems CW spinoff 'The Flash' has inherited the gift. Following 'Prison Break' alum Wentworth Miller's casting as Captain Cold, onscreen brother Dominic Purcell will also menace 'The Flash' as DC villain Heat Wave, reuniting the two stars.
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.
Yesterday we learned that the CW's 'Arrow' had continued expanded its roster of DC rogues, and its spinoff series 'The Flash' certainly isn't trailing behind. Not only has the speedy new superhero drama added a 'Star-Crossed' alum as metallic villain Girder, but 'Sleepy Hollow' star (and former Lex Luthor!) Clancy Brown will play DC's General Wade Eiling.
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.
We're still admittedly on the fence about 'Arrow''s upcoming 'The Flash' spinoff, even with favorable reactions from Comic-Con 2014, but we have to give it to the DC drama for swinging to the fences. In addition to a plethora of DC villains already lined up, 'The Flash''s first season has added 'Arrow' baddie Robert Knepper to reprise his role as The Clock King, along with yet another DC metahuman, and a stylish new trailer to wrap it all up in.
