Dylan Neal Joins Arrow Season 2 As Dr. Anthony Ivo
Arrow continues to add big comic book characters to its second season. We’ve already heard about The Flash, Bronze Tiger, Metamorpho and The Atom references, Amanda Waller, Brother Blood, Sin, and the League of Assassins. If that wasn’t enough DC characters for one season, they’ve added another big villain. Screen Crush is reporting that Dylan Neal (Percy Jackson, Dawson’s Creek) has signed on to play Dr. Anthony Ivo.
Dr. Anthony Ivo, better known as Professor Ivo in the comics, is known as the creator of Amazo. The android that has the ability to mimic powers has given the Justice League a run for their money on several occasions. Neal will appear in a four-episode arc starting with episode 5 titled “League of Assassins.” After those four episodes there is an option for Neal to become a recurring character. Screen Crush describes the character as “a brutal but ruthless scientist who will stop at nothing to unearth a breakthrough that dates back to the latter days of World War II.” Arrow season 2 starts October 9th. What do you think about Dr. Ivo getting added to the show’s ever expanding DC character list?
