TV Line is reporting that they have learned that casting is now taking place for four new characters who will show up in the third season “Arrow.” Below are the names and descriptions for these four possible characters from TV Line, but if you want to avoid knowing anything about what you can expect to see in season 3, some of the information may contain spoilers:
‘DANIEL’ | Though Daniel could be a fake name to throw off spoilerholics, this 20something gent — a major recurring character for Season 3 — is a handsome, enigmatic and highly intelligent entrepreneur developing groundbreaking technology. (Picture a business magnate in Ryan Gosling’s body.) Though exuding charm and confidence in public, he privately harbors a tragic past that will drive him to become a tech-powered superhero. Watch for this formidable fella to be a love interest for Felicity and a rival of Oliver’s – both personally and professionally.
‘SETH’ | A well-educated criminal with grand ambitions and a knack for chemistry, this potentially recurring character gains power over his enemies by exposing them to a drug that drains their willpower. Oh, and he is very much a physical match for The Arrow.
TOSHI | Majorly recurring in (at least) the Hong Kong flashbacks, Toshi will serve as Oliver’s teacher and handler, and eventually become a friend. A well-trained operative, skilled in weaponry, combat and intelligence gathering, he is also a devoted father and husband.
AKIKO | Toshi’s wife is another of Oliver’s Hong Kong caretakers, and is herself highly skilled in martial arts.
This information gives us a lot to speculate on until we hear some official announcement from The CW. But until we do, it will definitely be fun to speculate if any of these characters (Especially if those names are just there to throw us off) will be ones we’re familiar with from the DC universe!
Daniel kinda sounds like a version of Dick Grayson but some extra stuff added to him like the business.
