David Cubitt joins Arrow as Manhunter Mark Shaw
Medium star David Cubitt will play Manhunter in Arrow season 3...
Arrow season 3 looks set to be an interesting one, with a crossover to the new Flash series, Brandon Routh back in a heroic role and the centralisation of previous background threat Ra’s al Ghul all primed to spice things up nicely.
Another new addition Team Arrow will be facing has now been cast – David Cubitt (who you may recognise if you watch police procedural Medium) will play Mark Shaw, aka Manhunter.
Cubbitt will make his debut in episode three of the new run, so we’ve heard. It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first Manhunter nod the show has included either. Season two’s District Attorney Kate Spencer also held the role at one time in the comics, despite never taking the mantle in the show.
This is the first time we’ve seen a bona-fide Manhunter overtly on screen though, and seeing how the relatively-grounded Arrow writers handle an ancient sect of crime-fighters should be quite interesting. Odds are probably short on Manhunter being unimpressed with Oliver’s long list of crimes.
