Arrow is once again tapping into its DC Comics universe for a new baddie.
Matt Ward has been cast as Simon Lacroix, aka DC villain Komodo, Entertainment Weekly has reported.
Ward will make appear in the show’s second episode, titled “Sara,” as the villain-of-the-week.
On Arrow, Lacroix is described as “a deadly mercenary using the code name Komodo, who wreaks havoc in Starling City.”
Here’s what executive producer Marc Guggenheim told EW:
“Yes, he’s the villain-of-the-week for the second week of the show, but you’ll see that Team Arrow’s pursuit of him is part and parcel of a season-long storyline. You’re going to know what happens to Komodo at the end of the episode, but it will be a little bit tied in better with the season-long mythology than villain-of-the-week episodes have done in the past.”
Arrow season 3 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8.
