4 new characters being cast for Arrow season 3
Find out who's joining Arrow's third season thanks to the online casting call below...
Warning: potential spoilers for Arrow season three.
TVline has published a casting call for four new Arrow roles, including at least one of season three's major recurring characters. Here they are, with some thoughts on which DC creations, if any, they might line up with...
First up is "Daniel", a handsome, enigmatic, highly intelligent twenty-something entrepreneur "developing ground-breaking technology" who harbours a "tragic past that will drive him to become a tech-powered superhero". Assuming that the name provided is to throw us off the scent, our best guess is that "Daniel" could turn out to be Ted Kord of Kord Industries, and DC's second Blue Beetle. According to reports, this chap is going to be a love interest for our Felicity, and a rival to Oliver.
Then comes "Seth", an educated crim with a knack for chemistry. Seth is described only as a "potentially recurring character" in Arrow season three, and one whose drug-development skills will put him on the wrong side of Oliver Queen.
Third is "Toshi", a character due to feature in Oliver's Hong Kong flashbacks as his teacher, handler and eventual friend.
He comes joined by Akiko, a skilled martial artist, Toshi's wife, and another of Oliver's Hong Kong handlers.
