Fans of The CW's Arrow are preparing for an action-packed season thanks to the recent casting of Jimmy Akingbola as Baron Blitzkrieg, the leader of Shadowspire - an evil organization that will evidently play a huge part in the Green Arrow's troubles this coming season.
Today, another member was added to the Shadowspire lineup, as the show execs have just signed Ryan Robbins on to play Conklin. The character has no real comic book parallel, but Variety describes him as "a sadistic and ruthless member of Shadowspire who will be an adversary for Oliver (Stephen Amell) in the flashback sequences."
Shadowspire's growing lineup is only one of Oliver Queen's many concerns this coming season, but the organization will likely undergo a revamp to modernize it for today's television audiences.
Robbins, who is best known for his role as Tector on Falling Skies, is also lined up to star in Legendary's Warcraft film, and is obviously no stranger to the geek space. While the intentions of his character are still unclear, Robbins has the chops and familiarity to pull off a great comic book villain, and his character is set to have a recurring role throughout Season 4 of Arrow, which returns to The CW on October 7th at 8 p.m.
