Attempting to fill the void left by Smallville's departure from its primetime line-up, The CW is focusing all its energy on upcoming series Arrow.
As revealed by EW.com, the network has added another DC Comics vigilante to the cast, this time pulling from Gotham's gallery of caped crusaders.
One-time Batman disciple the Huntress will be sharing screentime with Stephen Amell's depiction of Oliver Queen, aka Green Arrow, this October.
Playing the masked heroine, for what's reported as a multi-episode story arc, will be Australian actress Jessica De Gouw (pictured above).
There have been a number of incarnations of the Huntress. Helena Wayne was the child of Batman and Catwoman on an alternate Earth, while the later Helena Bertinelli was the daughter of a Gotham crimelord.
Most recently, it was revealed in a DC Comics miniseries - part of the publisher's 'New 52' reboot of all of its titles »
