‘Arrow’ Casts ‘Homeland’ Star as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow’s New Foe

DC fans rejoice!

Things just got a lot more interesting in Starling/Star City.

According to E! News, Homeland‘s Navid Negahban has been cast as a new villain named Awwal. He is set to first appear in an episode titled: “The Demon’s Head”, which DC fans will recognize as the translation of Ra’s al Ghul‘s name, (who happens to be one of Batman’s greatest foes.) Awwal will reportedly have some ties with Ra’s al Ghul’s mysterious League of Assassins; so, that will be interesting to see.

Hopefully Batman is just around the corner?

I kid, I kid.

(But seriously.)

(But seriously)

This also comes in light of news that the series is seeking to introduce the The Flash somewhere down the line. I for one am hoping that WB/DC finds away to segue-way this show into their cinematic universe. I think it would make building one a hell of a lot easier.
