Arrow Casts Jimmy Jean-Louis In A Mysterious Role With An Amazo Connection
Last week it was announced that Dylan Neal would be joining season 2 of Arrow as Dr. Anthony Ivo, better known as Professor Ivo in the comics. Ivo is the creator of the villainous Amazo android that has the ability to mimic different super powers. The powerful bot has been a thorn in the Justice League‘s side for years in the comics. Today a new addition to the Arrow cast has been announced with ties to Amazo.
Comic Book Resources revealed that Heroes alum Jimmy Jean-Louis (The Haitian) has joined the cast in a mysterious role. Jean-Louis will play a character called The Captain in a multi-episode arc. The only details released about the character is that he “is a mysterious and deadly associate of Anthony Ivo and has a connection to a mystery of Season 2 called the ‘Amazo’ — which will be a familiar name to DC Comics fans.“
It really sounds like Amazo will be a part of season 2. Whether he will be under construction or actually completed and terrorizing Arrow (and maybe Flash) remains to be seen. Jean-Louis could even be the basis for Amazo. We’ll have to wait until October 9th when Arrow season 2 kicks off to find out, but big things are obviously in store. What do you think about the new casting announcement? Do you think we’ll see Amazo sometime this season?
