Let’s be honest, last night’s episode of Arrow was about as near perfect an episode as they’ve had yet. And this season, as I’ve mentioned over and over, is already a vast improvement over its first. “Deathstroke” is the icing on the cake (which is saying something considering there’s still four more episodes to go). It’s thrilling, tense, and keeps you guessing at where its heading the whole time; an impressive achievement for the often heavy handed show. (more…)
As DC struggles to hold its own against an all-powerful Marvel/Disney alliance, one of their top dogs in the fight is the super hero show known as Arrow. Based off the Green Arrow character, the show has been met with more praise than Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and has spawned a legion of fanboys/girls (as well as a Flash pilot). One thing that the writers of Arrow have done very well is their commitment to introducing a ton a familiar faces. We’ve seen Deathstroke, the Suicide Squad and a host of other baddies. Now, it looks like one more favorite will be coming to arrow – Ravager. (more…)
Back in 2011 Summer Glau got her first taste of being a superhero outside being a terminator or a gifted intellectual with psychic abilities on NBC’s failed series, The Cape. A lot of people cursed the show and it resulted in an early cancellation, and a lot of bit parts for Summer. Now it looks like DC and The CW are welcoming Glau to Starling City.
According to TV Line, Glau will join the second season of the CW series, Arrow as Isabel Rochev, who fans of the comics will recognize as a strong villain in Green Arrow’s Rogue gallery. This marks a substantial role for Summer and will be her second role in the DC Universe, the first being her role as Supergirl in the animated Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Fans of the series will recognize Rochev’s name as it was referenced once in the first season of Arrow. In Season 2 she is described as, “the beautiful and dangerous Vice President of Aquisitions for Stellmoor International, a company looking to take over Queen Consolidated. Per DC lore, Isabel fancies herself a bit of a rightful heir to the Queen family business, and as such she will be eager to get Ollie out of her way.”
Summer should fit quite well into the role, as she’s played many characters in the past are who soft-spoken, but highly dangerous individuals. No word on when she will begin filmingto , but look for her to be possibly present at this year’s SDCC as Arrow will be highlighted at the convention next week.
Arrow Season 2 premieres on the CW Wednesday, October 9th.
