Source: Devon Aoki Joins CW’s ‘Arrow’; Syfy’s ‘Ascension’ Rounds Out Cast
Well, it looks like another DC hero is going to pop up on Arrow next season. Deadline reports that Devon Aoki (Sin City, DOA: Dead or Alive) has been cast in a recurring role as Tatsu Yamashiro/Katana. She'll appear via flashbacks mentoring Oliver in Hong Kong and (to quote Deadline) "a critical influence" before he becomes a vigilante. No word yet if she'll be paying a visit to Starling City in her Katana guise. Though it's more than likely she will.
This is the second major multi-media appearance of the character in the past two years. The character also showed up as Batman's "side-kick" on the ill-fated animated series, Beware the Batman.
