Amanda Waller Set to Appear in New Season of Arrow

The CW’s Arrow is expanding its roster with DC comic characters at an ever growing pace for the new season. SpoilerTV is reporting that the sixth episode of the season will be titled “Keep Your Enemies Closer” and will feature the debut of a new season regular, Amanda Waller! Check back here for casting on the character in the near future.

Waller has long been a “Nick Fury” type in the DCU but with a more sinister side to her work. Heading up A.R.G.U.S., who has already appeared in two episodes of Arrow, and putting together the Suicide Squad, Waller is a formidable opponent in the DCU. It’s said in her debut episode she will send an A.R.G.U.S. team out to kidnap John Diggle.

She isn’t the only new DC character set to appear on the new season of Arrow which will also feature Caity Lotz as Black Canary, Michael Jai White as Bronze Tiger, Kevin Alejandro as Sebastian Blood, Bex Taylor-Klaus as Sin, and the series debut of Barry Allen aka The Flash later in the season.

Arrow Season 2 premieres on Wednesday, October 9th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
