Rejoice Helena Bertinelli fans! Your Huntress lives on in the the CW‘s upcoming series based on the Emerald Archer, Arrow. Entertainment Weekly is reporting Jessica De Gouw will don the persona of The Huntress in a multi-episode arc this season. Huntress has been re imagined a few times in DC Comics, with the current incarnation being Helena Wayne from Earth-2. As far as we know Helena Bertinelli, note no obvious relation to Batman here, is M.I.A. in the New 52 and is most likely non-existent. So this news is surely going to delight many of Bertinelli’s fans.
Here’s how Huntress is described for Arrow,
Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father’s organized crime empire. But Helena’s blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow.
Really, they’re calling him, “the Arrow”? Every time I get excited for this series they have to go and throw in something ridiculous like that. And of course she’s a potential love interest for Ollie, who isn’t?
Arrow premieres October 10th at 8 PM on the CW, will you be watching? How about after the news Bertinelli will be seen kicking mobsters butts? Ooh, I hope she’ll have her crossbow!
