What emotional roller coaster has season 3 of CW's Arrow been. With only a few episodes left till this season's EPIC conclusion, we are left with many questions.
How will Team Arrow bring back Oliver? Will Oliver be capable of ending Ra's Al Ghul for good? What's in store for the hero now that "the Arrow" has come to an end? Will we have a better understanding behind the murder of Diggle's brother with the H.I.V.E being officially introduced next season?
Throughout the three seasons, Arrow has introduced a variety of comic book characters such as the Huntress, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Bronze Tiger, Solomon Grundy (sorta) Cupid, etc. I must say, the creators of the show have really made the wishes of comic book fans come to life by having fan favorite villains Deathstroke and Ra's Al Ghul appears as the antagonists. The show sure does treat its comic books fans and with that in mind. here are a couple of characters that HAVE to make an appearance in the future.
He may appear as a scrawny elderly asian man but do not let his appearance fool you. For those of you who have no idea who he is, Natas is the man who trained Slade Wilson and at one point Oliver Queen. The fact that he trained Deathstroke himself should already give you an idea of the savage man he is. I mean his name is "SATAN" spelled backwords! I really wish Natas would be more recognized and used more throughout DC projects.
He is known for betraying Queen by hiring a group of the world's deadliest assassins to murder him, thus resulting in a night of an epic chase. Imagine this story being adapted into an episode of Arrow! I can see Oliver outsmarting the hired killers while running through the streets of Starling City, or even in the past through the wilderness of Lian Yu! Natas could easily be introduced as former mentor of Oliver through the flashback portion of the show.
2. Jason Todd/Red Hood
Ok, some of you may be thinking, "Seriously another Batman character?" Before I'm ripped apart, hear me out. Jason Todd, second adopted son of Bruce Wayne, would be an amazing addition to Queens rogue of villains. He is a martial art expert (trained by Batman), a skilled detective, a great tactician, a weapon experts, and just a complete badass. The fact that he is willing to spill blood could serve him as a foil to Oliver Queen just as he had to Batman. Queen and Todd have crossed paths before and encountered in a sword fight. Tell me that doesn't sound something you would want to see.
Now who would play Jason Todd/Red Hood? My vote is Supernatural's very own...
The actor has already voiced the anti-hero in the animated film Batman: Under the Red Hood so it seems natural to cast him in the role. Of course he already has the main role of Dean Winchester in Supernatural, but with both show being part of the same network I'm sure Ackles could possibly guest star in at least ONE episode of Arrow in the future. Interesting enough, prior to the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in the upcoming DC film BVS, the actor had shown interest in portraying the cape crusador:
Any guy in his right mind would die to play Batman. It would be a dream come true. I won't hold my breath.
Sadly we wont have the chance to see Ackles take the mantle as Batman but we could still him take the role of the Red Hood which is just as close.
My apologies for geeking out, I just love this idea!
And that's two character that I believe should appear on Arrow. I know two characters aren't much for a character but considering that this is my very first blog, it is all i can write for now. Maybe I'll do much better in the future.
