Season 2 of The CW’s Arrow is getting bigger. We already know The Flash will be debuting at some point (still no word on who will be playing him).
It turns out Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad will be joining the show and some of the characters have been cast.
First up we have Amanda Waller. She used to be nicknamed The Wall as she was a tough cookie, but also a rather large lady. Then, during the DC 52 change about, the character was slimmed down and became a former member of Team 7. The character has been played by Angela Bassett, Pam Grier and CCH Pounder in the past.
For Arrow they have got Cynthia Addai-Robinson. She starred in Spartacus and was very bad-ass in that so she has got the intensity that the character needs.
In Arrow, Amanda Waller works for A.R.G.U.S. — Advanced Research Group United Support — a clandestine agency that has a mysterious agenda and possesses key information about the Arrow. In the comics, Waller runs the Suicide Squad, which will be introduced in Season 2 as Deadshot (Michael Rowe) teams up with Bronze Tiger, who will be played by Michael Jai White.
In addition to Waller and Bronze Tiger, the second season will feature more comic book characters and will include Caity Lotz as Black Canary, Kevin Alejandro as Sebastian Blood and Bex Taylor-Klaus as Sin.
Arrow Season 2 premieres on Wednesday, October 9th at 8 p.m. You can watch a trailer below.
