Arrow returns this October for its fourth season, and fans are being treated to brand new characters from the comics. Confirmed so far we have Anarky, played by Alexander Calvert (Bates Motel, The Returned), who is well known for his confrontations with Batman in the comics. Expect strong political themes when his character is introduced, as the name suggests Anarky is no friend to governments or social order.
Also joining season 4 will be Mr Terrific, played by Echo Kellum (Sean Saves the World, Ben and Kate), who is known for being extremely intelligent (over 10 PhDs to his name) and the figurehead of the Justice Society of America. They will both join Damien Darhk, who will be played by Neal McDonough (Minority Report, Justified), the notorious leader of criminal organisation H.I.V.E. and former apprentice of Ra’s al Ghul, which could spell a lot of trouble for Oliver.
One of the most popular fan theories however focuses on the existing character, John Diggle, who has been confirmed as wearing a mask and new costume for season 4, which has left many fans speculating that he could be revealed as John Stewart or rather Green Lantern. Whilst the actor has gone on record to say that this is not the plan at the moment, it wasn’t dismissed completely, which means we could see the character introduced in one form or another in the near future. Arrow returns on the 7th of October, 2015.
