BREAKING: Comic Book Television Show Casts Actor as Comic Book Character

Arrow will feature a New 52 villain this season.

Arrow has its...Komodo.  The rival archer to the New 52's Oliver Queen will be played by Matt Ryan (Tron: Legacy, Hellcats) in the second episode of the CW's show's third season.  In the comics, Komodo, better known as Simon Lacroix, was not only as dangerous of an archer as Green Arrow, he also had a secret past with Oliver's father and helped usher in a new version of the Outsiders to the New 52.  With Katana, another DC character with connections to the Outsiders, already set to play a major role in Arrow this season, it's very possible that the show is setting up its own version of the Outsiders War, a major arc of Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino's recently concluded Green Arrow run.
