CW is certainly bringing the heat to the second season of Arrow with the series opening the flood gates for lots of new villains and superheros. The latest tidbit of news is this picture of Michael Jai White as the Bronze Tiger. Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim had this to say about White’s Bronze Tiger:
He is such a badass. His performance, our kick-ass stunt department, our incredibly talented costumer designer, and our very gifted props master…they’ve all combined their A-games to create a really great representation of this DC Comics character.
Bronze Tiger makes his debut in this season’s second episode, where we find Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) drawn into battle with Suicide Squad member Bronze Tiger (AKA Ben Turner).
He’s basically the best of the best, so he has come to Starling City to see if the Hood can give him a challenge. To that end, he has aligned himself with China White (Kelly Hu) and the Chinese Triad.
If you’re a fan of the character from the comics, you are going to really happy with his Arrow-fication.
You can expect that everyone will be kung-fu fighting this season, testing Oliver to his limits and beyond. That’s probably why he’ll take on new allies to help. We’ve already seen some clips hinting that Oliver wants to change his nickname from the Hood to something else. I expect the reason and the choice of Green Arrow will be one of the highlights of the second season.
What are you most excited about seeing this second season?
Arrow‘s second season premieres on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8/7c on The CW.
