Here's a round-up of all the big Arrow news that hit last night.
First and foremost: sizzle reel for Season 2, featuring Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev and Caity Lotz as...the Black Canary.
Now onto the rest of the news:
- Bronze Tiger and Brother Blood will both appear in Season 2. Michael Jai White will appear as the former, and Kevin Alejandro will play the latter.
- Here's character descriptions for the pair:
Michael Jai White plays Ben Turner, a claw-wielding assassin better known as Bronze Tiger, who’s well known to DC Comics fans as a member of both the League of Assassins and the Suicide Squad. On Arrow, he’ll form an unholy alliance with fan-favorite villain China White (played by Kelly Hu), another well-established character in the DC Comics universe.
Kevin Alejandro plays Sebastian Blood. Drawing inspiration from the iconic New Teen Titans nemesis Brother Blood, Sebastian is an alderman who rises to power in the wake of the earthquake that devastated Starling City in Arrow’s first-season finale. Blood’s “man-of-the-people” popularity instantly places him at odds with Oliver Queen, whose family he blames for the quake.
- Diggle will pop up in the Green Arrow comics.
- Ollie journey to become Green Arrow will be helped along "by a few heroes".
- Producers stressed that Caity Lotz is "just the beginning" of Katie Cassady's journey.
- Detective Lance is now a beat cop.
- Viewers will get a clue as to what happens to Slade Wilson in the opening moments of Season 2.
And that's about everything!
