‘Arrow’ Season 5 Sets Rick Gonzalez as New DC Vigilante Wild Dog
Months out from its premiere, Arrow Season 5 has played reasonably coy with new heroes and villains populating Star City this year, until now, at least. The next Arrow run has revealed that DC vigilante “Wild Dog” will make things difficult for Oliver Queen, with Rick Gonzalez taking the part.
Entertainment Weekly confirmed the Arrow Season 5 addition, describing Gonzalez’s Wild Dog to arrive in the premiere as “a new vigilante in Star City whose reckless and cocksure nature prompts Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) to take him under his wing.” Prior reports also listed the character as an ex-Marine.
Elsewhere of Season 5, we know that Oliver’s tenure as Star City mayor will pit him against an “apex predator” crime boss influenced by The Wire villain Stringer Bell, with a hint of Jason Momoa. Stephen Amell has also downplayed the likelihood of The Flash’s time-turning twist affecting any Arrow chronology, while we’ll also have Echo Kellum elevated to series regular as Curtis Holt, and Colton Haynes reportedly returning as Roy Harper for a number of episodes.
We’ll likely hear more of Arrow Season 5 on the road to Comic-Con 2016, but what make we of the new heroes and villains joining the ranks?
