One of the excited things to come out of comic con for television is the trailer for season 2 of Arrow. Amidst my frustrations with DC’s decisions about expanding their Cinematic Universe, Arrow season 1 was a pleasant surprise. From the trailer, season 2 looks to up the ante with brand new character and what looks like the appearance of Black Canary. Is Laurel actually gonna put on the costume? For some reason I thought they were gonna draw that storyline out. This trailer actually increased my anticipation for season two’s premiere.
Also coming on board is Michael Jai White who will be playing an assassin called Ben turner. White is no stranger to comic book adaptations. He started out as Spawn in the live action film, then moved on to The Dark Knight as the gangster, Gambol. Here is Warner Bros. official press release on the character:
Michael Jai White plays Ben Turner, a claw-wielding assassin better known as Bronze Tiger, who’s well known to DC Comics fans as a member of both the League of Assassins and the Suicide Squad. On Arrow, he’ll form an unholy alliance with fan-favorite villain China White (played by Kelly Hu), another well-established character in the DC Comics universe.
