One Villain Has CW’s Arrow In His Sights


When we first started hearing about CW’s Arrow, we were told that there wouldn’t be any real connections to the larger DC universe. It turns out that wasn’t entirely true. The first trailer showed a Deathstroke mask, and now we know another big bad is coming to Starling City.

We had heard at Comic Con that Kelly Hu had signed up to play China White from the comic Green Arrow: Year One. Now there is confirmation on Deadshot appearing, making that three DC characters lined up for the show. confirmed reports of a “dead shot with a sniper’s rifle” appearing in the third episode of Arrow. The episode is entitled Lone Gunmen and will introduce Deadshot to the Arrow universe. The Batman villain and Suicide Squad member will be shown in a different light according to Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg. He hinted that the third episode would show us a different Deadshot than we saw in Smallville. Arrow has no connection to Smallville, he is just comparing the portrayals. No word on who will play Deadshot.

With the episode being the third in the season, it should be aired on October 24th. How do you think this version of Deadshot should be portrayed compared to Smallville? Would you like to see something like the Arkham City version,  the Batman: Gotham Knight version, or something completely different? Arrow debuts October 10th.
