Arrow @ Comic-Con: Will Season 2 Give Us Suicide Squad, a Black Canary and Green Arrow?

Jul 20 2013, 10:00pm CDT | by TV Line

Arrow ‘s adversaries for Season 2 will include (but by no means be limited to) DC lore’s infamous Suicide Squad — and a True Blood alum and a Dark Knight cast member are among the group’s ranks.

During the CW series’ Comic-Con panel on Saturday evening, it was announced that Kevin Alejandro would guest-star as Sebastian Blood (a character inspired by the New Teen Titans nemesis Brother Blood). Blood’s an alderman who rises to power in the wake of the earthquake that devastated Starling City in the Season 1 finale, and his “man-of-the-people” popularity instantly places him at odds with Oliver Queen.

Meanwhile, Michael Jai White — who appeared in The Dark Knight with Heath Ledger’s Joker and voiced Doomsday in the animated Justice League — will play Ben Turner aka the claw-wielding assassin Bronze Tiger. He’ll form an unholy alliance with China White (returning guest star Kelly Hu).

Michael Rowe’s Deadshot is also expected to be a member of Arrow’s Suicide Squad.

Watch the new Season 2 sizzle reel, then scroll down for more scoop from Comic-Con panelists Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards and Colton Haynes, and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg.

BE A HERO | The title of the season premiere — “City of Heroes,” which picks up five months later — is also the theme of the season as Oliver goes from being Arrow to being the Green Arrow. There will be “a couple of more heroes helping him out this season, in addition to one from last season,” teased Kreisberg, adding that “it’s not just about crossing names off a list anymore. This season is about him seeing that the city needs a hero.” And that extends past Ollie as Detective Lance, Laurel, etc. also do their part to help.

A CANARY SINGS | A sneak peek at Season 2 revealed that Black Canary is indeed being introduced – “Where the hell did you come from?” exclaims Roy after watching her kick some butt – but like with all of tho show’s comic lore-based characters, she may not end up being the ultimate Black Canary. “We’re telling the beginning of the Black Canary story,” explained Kreisberg.

BAD MOMMIE | “It’s [Moira's] season of redemption. Can she come back?” Kreisberg previewed. In the meantime, Oliver will take more of an interest in Queen Consolidated, which is going to be difficult because his last name is now associated with murder. And what’s his sis Thea doing? Running Oliver’s nightclub!

THE DARK ARCHER LIVES | After John Barrowman crashed the panel, the talk natural turned to his possible return. “Dead people can’t come back to life, can they?” Kreisberg hedged. For his part, Barrowman said he’d “be more than happy to come back into this family fold. And if I were invited back, it’s more than the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who has ever done, I’ll tell you that.”

R.I.P. TOMMY | “No one’s sadder than I was,” Amell said f his onscreen buddy’s death. “Everything that happens [in the series' run] is meant to honor [Tommy]. Every decision that [Oliver] makes is considerate of and inspired by Tommy going forward.”

BROKEN CITY | The destructive events of last season’s finale will still be felt all these months months later. “Some people have worked out their stuff, others haven’t,” shared Kreisberg. That includes Laurel, who has “done her mourning and grieving and she’s trying to move forward in any she can,” but “as much as she loves Oliver, she also loved Tommy,” Cassidy explained. The actress also teased that her onscreen counterpart “starts to kick some butt.”

ROY’S SPEEDY FUTURE | “Season 2 can be almost like an island to Roy like it was to Oliver,”  Haynes said. “He’s going to have to realize he’s not as big of a badass as he thinks he is.” He’s also need to win over Oliver as Thea’s boyfriend, which is “going to take some time.”
