‘Arrow’ Casts J.R. Ramirez as DC’s Wildcat

Even though the CW has been nearly relentless in rolling out news for The Flash as well as Arrow, it seems that they have no plans in slowing down.

And on that note, Deadline recently announced that J.R. Ramirez has been cast Ted Grant (who is also known as Wildcat).

Truth be told: I have no idea who the f*ck Wildcat is. But I guess I’m about to find out.

This is my actual question though.

Moving on, Deadline explained that Ramirez’s role on the show looks as if it is going to be a recurring one. In fact, Arrow’s version of Ted Grant “will be a former boxer with a mysterious past who runs a gym for underprivileged youth, and ends up playing a pivotal role in Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy)’s arc this season. In the comics, Wildcat was known as a member of the Justice Society of America, serving as a trainer and mentor to several other heroes, Black Canary included” (Screen Crush).

Well, it appears as if Laurel will assuming the role as the venerable Black Canary very soon. I can’t say that I am surprised (or pumped). So far, her various storylines in the show haven’t been all that great, her character is highly annoying (and poorly written), and honestly, she is my least favorite part of the show.

I can do without.


But anyways, how excited are you for season three of Arrow? Let me know in the comments below as you check the trailer out again here!

Arrow will be returning on October 7 at 8/7 central.
