‘Arrow’ Season 4 Casts Neal McDonough as Damien Darhk
We’ve been eagerly awaiting news of Arrow’s Season 4 casting, particularly with regards to a certain Darhk-sided baddie. With CW hitting Comic-Con this week, it was only a matter of time before the beans were spilled, and it looks like they’re some good ones. Arrow has secured Neal McDonough to play the role of Starling City villain Damien Darhk in Season 4.
Per Deadline, Arrow has cast McDonough in the major recurring role for the upcoming fourth season. The actor is already quite familiar with the realm of superheroes, having recently appeared on Marvel’s Agent Carter as Dum Dum Dugan.
Darhk was teased in the final episodes of Season 3, while some speculated that the misspelling of “Damian” in reports indicated Batman’s Damian Wayne, the character’s description as a major, formidable foe for our favorite hooded vigilante indicated otherwise.
Thus far of Arrow Season 4, we know the fourth year is expected to somewhat creatively revamp the series after its Season 3 finale saw Oliver retiring the vigilante lifestyle, at least with his current costume. In addition to a focus on DC villains H.I.V.E. and Damien Darhk, Season 4 may also feature flashbacks amid Green Lantern’s hometown of Coast City, while creatively current Co-EP Wendy Mericle has been elevated to co-showrunner alongside Marc Guggenheim, and Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander will helm an episode.
We’ll have more updates for you on Arrow Season 4 as well as The Flash Season 2 from Comic-Con this week. Stay tuned.
