J.R. Ramirez Is Wildcat in 'Arrow' Season 3

29 July 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, Arrow producers revealed that another hero will be emerging in Season 3, with the addition of Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, although the producers didn't announce who will play the character. Today, Deadline reveals that J.R. Ramirez has signed on to portray Wildcat.

Wildcat, who was created by Bill Finger and Irwin Hasen, first appeared in Sensation Comics #1 in 1942, a former boxer who doesn't have any superpowers, but uses his advanced fighting skills. There was a point in the comics where he was given the ability to return from the dead nine times.

In Arrow, Ted Grant runs a Starling City gym where he helps underprivileged children, who is hiding a mysterious past. He will have a pivotal impact on Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) and her story line this season. The role is being envisioned as "potentially recurring," but it isn't known how many episodes he is currently slated for, »

The CW Adds Ra’s al Ghul Footage to New Arrow Season 3 Trailer

28 July 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The CW released the first Arrow season 3 trailer on Friday.  On Saturday, Stephen Amell announced that Ra's al Ghul will be the big bad in season 3, so The CW has released a new extended trailer that adds about 30 seconds of Ra's al Ghul footage at the end of the clip.  Ra's al Ghul was referenced several times in season 2, so fans guessed this was coming.  His presence in this footage is represented by camera pans across a faceless costume and ominous voice-over, so it will be interesting to see who the Arrow team casts as the immortal villain. Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Wolland and Caity Lotz along with new cast members Peter Stormare, Devon Aoki and Brandon Routh, Arrow season 3 returns October 8.  Check out the first look at Ra's al Ghul after the jump.  Some background on Ra's al Ghul from the comics: Ra's al Ghul »

The villain of Arrow season 3 is Ra’s al Ghul, new promo released

27 July 2014 2:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After much fan speculation about Arrow‘s “Big Bad” for season three, it’s finally been made official: the Demon’s Head himself, Ra’s al Ghul, is making his way to Starling City.

The news was announced at San Diego Comic-Con during the Warner Bros./DC TV panel in Hall H late Saturday night. The announcement was followed by some comments from executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who stated that the seeds for Ra’s’ arrival had been planted very early on:

“It really happened very organically in the sense that we had this notion that in episode 16 we were going to reveal that Malcolm Merlyn was trained by the League of Assassins and that’s because that’s because of the comic book. We were like, you know what we’re going to do? We’re going to get away with a little reference about a guy in Nanda Parbat who changed his life. »

Wildcat to appear in Arrow season 3

27 July 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that DC comics character Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, would be heading to Starling City for an appearance in Arrow‘s third season.

For those unfamiliar, Ted Grant is a championship boxer in DC Comics, who became entangled in the criminal underworld and developed the costumed identity Wildcat to clear his name. Created by Batman creator Bill Finger and artist Irwin Hasen in 1942, Wildcat is a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and trained several members of the Justice League including Black Canary and Batman.

Nothing is known about his part in Arrow, such as when it will take place, how long he’ll be on the show, or who could play him, but executive producer Marc Guggenheim stated that he’ll have “some interaction with Laurel,” meaning he’s probably tasked with training her »

Wildcat And Ra’s Al Ghul Are Heading To Arrow

27 July 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One things fans can never complain about the CW’s Arrow is a lack of DC Comics characters. Over the course of the show’s two seasons we’ve seen countless villains and heroes from the comics, and that trend will continue as we head into year three. We’ve already seen characters like Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom (played by Superman ReturnsBrandon Routh), the New 52 version of Count Vertigo (Fargo‘s Peter Stormare) and Katana (Sin City‘s Devon Aoki) join the ranks, and now we have two more names to add to that list.

The first new addition is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, a championship boxer who served as a mentor and trainer to several younger heroes including Black Canary and Batman. He’s a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and has been seen in several DC animated series like »

26 July 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While the superhero genre has blossomed on the big screen over the last decade, the small screen has seen relatively fewer attempts at the genre. One notable exception, however, is the CW show Arrow, which has garnered both commercial and critical praise over the course of its two seasons, leading to excitement at the announcement that the show had been renewed for a third season. Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards, and David Ramsey reprise their roles in the new season, with Brandon Routh and Devon Aoki joining the cast. Following the show’s panel at Comic-Con 2014, a trailer for the third season has now been released, and can be seen below.

Edit: A second version of the trailer has also been released, with a new ending, which can be seen below.

Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teases season 3′s new villain

22 July 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen has tussled with Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) across the past two seasons of Arrow, and so far the producers of the DC superhero show have been keeping the new villain for the upcoming third season under wraps. However, that may not be the case for much longer, with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg telling EW that the new bad guy will be cast “soon”, as well as teasing their motivation.

“Slade had a very specific agenda—he was out for revenge and had set up this elaborate five-year plot. What’s interesting about the villain in season three is that he doesn’t necessarily disagree with [Oliver]. He doesn’t have any personal animus towards the Arrow, and he actually in some ways has a very similar worldview. [But] the Arrow is thinking too small. In some ways, as Oliver is struggling with »

New TV Spot ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

22 July 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Comic-book movies have mostly focused on the superhero world as of late, but in the early 2000s Hollywood was taking bigger chances on darker and more independent comics such as Road To Perdition, Ghost World and arguably the biggest of the bunch, Frank Miller’s Sin City. As a twisted anthology of noir tales set in the fictional Basin City, it gave us a cruel and violent world which brought the comic to life via the use of excessive green screen, allowing director’s Miller and Robert Rodriguez to stunningly recreate the graphic novels.

This latest TV spot seems to try and convince us of a more heroic feel with the line “When outlaws become heroes.” The big stars of the original’s impressive cast return with  few changes, the late Michael Clarke Duncan and the pregnant Devon Aoki are absent while Michael Madsen and Clive Owen have been replaced »

Once he was Superman. Now he's The Atom. Brandon Routh, who took the lead in Bryan Singer's Superman Returns in 2006, is joining The CW TV series Arrow for its third season, in the recurring role of one Ray Palmer. He joins the also recently arrived Peter Stormare (playing Count Vertigo) and Devon Aoki (playing Katana).In the original DC comics, Palmer was a professor of physics who developed a shrinking apparatus using matter from a white dwarf star. Naturally he ended up using it on himself (to escape a spelunking tragedy - damn that spelunking!) and was left with the permanent ability to reduce his size to a subatomic level. Accepting his new-found power, he decided to use it for superheroic good guy antics.His role in Arrow has been described as "an unrivalled scientist and inventor who will play an unexpected role in [Green Arrow] Oliver Queen's life".
