Arrow has found its Katana...again.  Deadline is reporting that Rila Fukushima, who played Yukio in The Wolverine, will be replacing Devon Aoki as Katana.  Aoki is departing Arrow due to a scheduling conflict.  Katana is set to have a major role in this season's flashbacks as a mentor for Oliver, and producers have hinted that she could appear in scenes set in the present day as well.  Considering Arrow has already filmed several episodes ahead of next month's premiere, it'll be interesting to see how Fukushima's casting impacts the show.
