Solomon Grundy is Coming to Arrow!

Arrow star Stephen Amell just tweeted something that should make DC Comics fans very happy...

It just never seems to stop with Arrow, does it? So far, the entire second season has been a seemingly endless parade of recognizable characters from the DC Universe, but in recent weeks, they’ve really stepped it up. Between the impending appearance of Barry Allen/The Flash (by far the biggest name DC Universe character to come to live-action outside of Superman or Batman in years), the mentions of Ra’s al Ghul, recurring characters like Roy Harper, Black Canary, Brother Blood, and Slade Wilson (and there are more), and the recent casting of Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter, Nyssa…well…who needs a Justice League movie?

Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen on Arrow, is usually chatty and friendly on Twitter, and this evening he sent out a not-so-cryptic hint that could only point to more big names coming to the show!

Yes. Solomon Grundy. Born on a Monday. Premiered on a Wednesday. Or something like that. I guess now that we know The Flash is coming, the show won’t shy away from superpowered villains, either! Now, the comic book Solomon Grundy is, essentially, a zombie. But the description of the December 11th episode (which will also feature Barry Allen) confirms that a character named Cyrus Gold is the villain of the week…and that sure is Solomon Grundy!

OLIVER IS VISITED BY GHOSTS FROM THE PAST — After a fight with Cyrus Gold AKA the Acolyte (guest star Graham Shiels), Oliver (Stephen Amell) is drugged and left for dead.  Determined to cure him, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) makes a risky decision.  The cure causes Oliver to hallucinate, and what he sees forces him to confront his past.  Meanwhile, Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) continues to help Felicity, and their connection grows stronger.  The Arrow asks Lance (Paul Blackthorne) to look into Gold, but when the stakeout on Gold goes bad, someone is killed.  Roy (Colton Haynes) is captured and tortured by Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro).  John Behring directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Geoff Johns & Ben Sokolowski (#209).
