Casting News: Arrow Gets Darhk

By Tim Beedle Friday, July 10th, 2015

Not all news out of Comic-Con is cheerful. In fact, some of it is downright Darhk.


As teased last season on Arrow, Oliver Queen and his team of allies will have a new adversary to deal with—Damien Darhk. Described as a mysterious and sophisticated villain, and an adversary of the late Ra’s Al Ghul, Damien Darhk is now the leader of his own clandestine group, suggesting that this cunning foe will prove to be one of the Arrow’s greatest challenges.

Darhk will be played by actor Neal McDonough (Band of Brothers, Justified) who will be joining the show as a series regular for season four. This isn’t McDonough’s first dip in the DC Universe—he voiced Deadshot in the animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham.
