Damian Wayne To Be "Arrow" Villain?
Like "Buffy" or "Smallville," The CW's "Arrow" has been a show where each season has been dominated by a 'Big Bad,' a single master villain whose machinations drive much of the events of each season.
In the first it was Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), the second was Deathstroke (Manu Bennett), and the current third season has been using Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable) albeit sparingly. Now it appears the villain of the fourth has been revealed.
TV Line reports that the season three finale will introduce a "major, formidable, fierce new foe" who will unleash a reign of terror that will carry on well into the next season.
Said character is being dubbed 'Damian Dark' internally, but the speculation is that the character will be this universe's interpretation of Damian Wayne - the grandson of Ra's al Ghul. Said character will likely NOT include the connection of him being Batman's son (and the sixth version of Robin), but it does raise the interesting question of whether his mother Talia al Ghul might also be coming to the world of "Arrow".
I was thinking in the terms of a DC Comics character called Damian Darhk, but that's just hunch.
The series is currently on a break but will return with its last run of third season episodes from March 18th.

The Smallville Connection In Arrow's "The Offer"
There have been some familiar faces between Arrow and The CW's first DC superhero drama, Smallville, in the past --- for starters, the actor playing Oliver Queen's doctor in the very first episode was Smallville's "Principal Kwan," and actors including Sarah-Jane Redmond, Michael Daingerfield, and Tahmoh Penikett have done both shows. Even the Queen mansion was familiar, as it was the same house used for Lex Luthor on Smallville.
Recent episode of Arrow, "The Offer," took things to a new level, though.
Adrian Glynn McMorran played "Murmur" in the show, but if we go back about 14 years, he was known to DC TV fans for a different role: That of "Jeremy Creek," the very first "meteor freak" met in the pilot episode of Smallville which aired in 2001.
Sadly, Smallville never brought Jeremy Creek back but now, he's had another DCU role.
Welcome back, Mr. McMorran.

DC Comics Blocked Arrow's Major Plans For Harley Quinn, Says Willa Holland
Arrow fans - don't get your hopes up on seeing Harley Quinn returning to the DC Comics TV series.
The super-villain was briefly featured in Arrow's second season as an ARGUS prisoner, before it was announced that Margot Robbie will play Harley in a Suicide Squad movie.
Arrow star Willa Holland told fans at the MCM London event over the weekend that the Warner Bros movie will prevent a return appearance for Tara Strong as Harley Quinn.
"We had big plans for Harley. But, I guess something came down from DC execs that told us to shut it down," Holland revealed.
"I mean we had that tease with the pigtails and the ARGUS outfit but, we'll never see it. We would love to [have]Harley in Arrow, but it will never happen."

Neal McDonough Is "Arrow" S4 Villain
Neal McDonough has been cast as Damien Darhk, the main antagonist in the upcoming fourth season of The CW's "Arrow".
Darhk was referenced a few times last season, a former member of the League of Assassins who got on the bad side of the third season villain Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable) and is now marked for death.
Darhk is a mysterious and sophisticated figure in charge of his own secret group, an organization called H.I.V.E. which has also been referenced.
McDonough has had experience both in comic adaptations, playing Dum Dum Dugan in both "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Agent Carter," along with playing a season long villain which he memorably did in the third season of FX's "Justified".
"Arrow" returns for its fourth season on October 7th.

"Arrow" EP Marc Guggenheim Teases Sara Lance's Resurrection
It's no secret that Caity Lotz, who played Sara Lance in the first two seasons of "Arrow," will be making a return to The CW's DC Universe, as she was announced to star in the "Arrow"/"Flash" spinoff, "Legends of Tomorrow," as early as February. However, the manner of her resurrection has been much more hush-hush. Now, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Marc Guggenheim has teased that "Arrow" would deal directly with the subject and that it may involve the new Ra's al Ghul in some capacity.
"Ray didn't explode in a catastrophic explosion and Sara needs to not be dead, "he said, confirming what many already knew. However, he added that Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) - the new Ra's al Ghul - has "got a strong point of view on [that]."
"It's going to be handled head-on, "he added. "We're doing a really great episode that really tackles the question of Sara, death and resurrection. On 'Arrow,' nothing is easy, so it's not as simple as dumping her in the water."
In an earlier interview, he also mentioned, "The White Canary will be launched in the first few episodes of Arrow - 4x08, our typical crossover episode, will be doing a lot of heavy-lifting in terms of getting the 'Legends of Tomorrow' characters set up and also seeing where they are with relation to 'The Flash.' It's a big episode."
"Arrow" season four is scheduled to debut 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7 on The CW. Ryan's episode will air on October 14.
'I wonder if their is any chance of Ravager/Isabel Rochev being restored back to life, that would be beneficial for the producers of Arrow."
