The people behind CW’s Arrow, a show that’s roughly a thousand times better than it should be, have been making announcements left and right about their plans to expand heavily into the DC universe. Not only are they adding the Flash, Black Canary and the League of Assassins (which might mean Ra’s al Ghul), but now we can look forward to Amanda Waller and Bronze Tiger.
Amanda Waller joining the cast of anything is always good, because she’s Amanda Waller and she’s awesome. Unfortunately, Arrow’s producers have opted to go the New 52 route and cast Cynthia Addai-Robinson in the role. You might recognize Addai-Robinson as Naevia from Spartacus, and from not looking at all like the classic image of the character.
Also appearing this season will be Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite, The Dark Knight) as Bronze Tiger. With him, Deadshot and Waller, what are the odds that the series is building up the Suicide Squad?
