DC Comic Characters Set To Appear On CW’s Arrow

Submitted by on September 10, 2012 – 1:00 pm Comments

Comic book fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Arrow on CW this fall. Another mouth watering prospect is the fact that, the show besides Arrow shall see a slew of other DC Comic characters. The anticipation of which all, those characters will be, is a fact tantalizing enough for any fan to lose sleep over. Well one revelation that might come as a bit of a disappointment is the fact that, characters like Superman, Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter might not make an appearance, as many might have sincerely hoped.

This was confirmed when Andrew Kreisberg the executive producer of the show revealed “Aside from the characters that wouldn’t fit into our conception of Oliver’s world, like some of the more fantastical aliens or superpowered people, everybody is really sort of up for grabs”. But the statement made by him also gave hope to the fact that, many an interesting character from the DC universe can possibly make an appearance on this show. His justification too makes a lot of sense, as an appearance of someone like Superman or Green Lantern would take the attention away from the central character around who, the show is based.

The show shall witness villains like Deadshot, who is actually a Batman villain, Deathstroke who is a frequent nemesis of Arrow and also China White a South Pacific drug cartel leader. In addition, the show through its season shall surely witness many more villains and evildoers, but the three villains are the only names that have been revealed at the present moment. Also, joining Arrow’s crew will be the Huntress the daughter of a mob boss, rather than the other Huntress, Helena Wayne, the daughter of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. “She’s going to be a match for [Oliver], both in skill and in matters of the heart”, Kriesberg reveals. “It’s a new take on The Huntress that no one has ever seen, but definitely feels Arrow-fied for our world”, he further adds.

Arrow’s inner circle shall also see Felicity Smoak, who in the DC universe is Firestorm’s stepmother. “On our show, she’s a brilliant IT girl at Queen Consolidated and she’s become a little bit of Oliver’s unknowing Scooby gang,” Kreisberg says. “She’s brilliant, but tough and sarcastic and doesn’t relate well to people. Oliver is constantly coming to her for computer problems and whether she knows it or not, she’s actually helping him solve some of the cases” he then adds. The premise that has been set up seems tantalizing enough, here’s hoping the execution matches it.
