We got some more casting news today, as TV Insider has revealed that actress Carly Pope (The Tomorrow People) has been cast as DC comics character Susan Williams. While that name might not sound familiar to you right away, she is a cool character that they’re bringing into the “Arrow” universe, because in the comics Susan Williams is married to Jim Jordan, the young brother to Green Lantern Hal Jordan!
While it’s unclear if they will use her being married to Jim Jordan as part of her story in “Arrow,” here is how TV Insider describes Susan Williams will first be used in the show:
The CW has revealed to TV Insider that Carly Pope will be taking on the recurring role of Susan Williams, a journalist from nearby Coast City who comes to Star City “looking to make a name for herself” by targeting Oliver Queen for a big story.
Bringing in Susan Williams could be the third of some pretty big teases we got of Hal Jordon on both “Arrow” and “The Flash.” As we saw someone in the season four premiere flashback sequence wearing a bomber jacket with the name Jordan on it while Oliver was in Coast City, and in the first season of “The Flash,” Barry mentioned a test pilot who has been missing while at Ferris Air.
Could the appearance of Susan Williams be the start of them introducing Hal Jordan into the series? Nothing would make me happier, but let us know if you think this is the start of finally bringing in Hal Jordan into the DCTV Universe!
