The writers at Arrow are pulling out all the stops for their new show. We’ve got China White, Deathstroke, Deadshot, and Huntress all confirmed, along with rumors of Firestorm set to appear in the show. Now we’ve got one more addition to the cast from the DC archives and it will make comic book faithfuls happy. Zap2it has confirmed that the Royal Flush Gang will appear in the CW’s TV series Arrow and “Being Human” actor Kyle Schmid has been cast as the gang’s leader Ace.
The Royal Flush Gang are a group of super villains in the DCU that are card themed (in case you couldn’t tell). They’re set to appear in episode six of the series titled “Legacies.”
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, David Ramsey as John Diggle, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.
From Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern), Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg (“Warehouse 13″, “Fringe”) and David Nutter (“Smallville”, “Supernatural”, “Game of Thrones”), the hard-hitting action series reinvents the DC hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime.
The show premieres Wednesday, October 10th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
