ARROW dialed up the anticipation for its fifth season at Comic-Con 2016 when fans in attendance were treated to an exclusive sizzle reel during the show's panel session in Ballroom 20 on Saturday, July 23. The annual, and always on point, SDCC highlight reel featured first looks at Team Arrow 2.0 recruits Evelyn Sharp and Wild Dog, and closed with the shocking revelation of its Season 5 "Big Bad," Prometheus, which left the audience quivering for the show's return Wednesday, October 5, at 8/7c on The CW.
It was also announced that Katie Cassidy has signed on a new deal as a revolving character and will appear on the different shows of Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. This is the same type of deal that Wentworth Miller and John Barrowman have with their characters.
In character news, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Joe Dinicol has landed a recurring role and will portray Rory Regan, the mystical DC Comics vigilante known as Ragman. Fresh from a personal tragedy, Rory hopes to find answers in Star City, where he ultimately crosses paths with Green Arrow.
