‘Arrow’ Season 2 Preview: Bronze Tiger Threaten’s Oliver’s “Identity,” Plus Watch Premiere “City of Heroes”
The CW’s ‘Arrow‘ season 2 premiere may not have hit the mark in its ratings, but fans and critics were quick to cheer “City of Heroes” as on target. To that end, The CW has placed the entirety of the action-packed ‘Arrow’ season 2 premiere online, as well as the first photos of next week’s installment “Identity,” featuring ‘The Dark Knight‘ star Michael Jai White as DC’s Bronze Tiger!
While you can find last night’s premiere “City of Heroes” online via The CW’s website, the latest batch of photos from ‘Arrow”s follow-up season 2 installment “Identity” gives us our best look yet at Michael Jai White’s Bronze Tiger, teaming up with China White (Kelly Hu) to take down The Arrow. You’ll also see ‘True Blood‘ star Kevin Alejandro as DC character Sebastian Blood, who proves a threat to Oliver in his own right by attacking the playboy’s public persona.
In addition to introducing Grant Gustin’s Flash, along with references to Metamorpho and The Atom, ‘Arrow’ season 2 continues the show’s its ‘Batman Begins’-influenced storytelling with the addition of new villains Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau), Anthony Ivo (Dylan Neal), his “Amazo”-ing associate (Jimmy Jean Louis), Amanda Waller (‘Spartacus‘ Cynthia Addai-Robinson), League of Assassins member Al-Owal (‘Homeland‘ star Navid Negahban) and DC character Sin (‘The Killing‘ star Bex Taylor Klaus). New reports have confirmed that John Barrowman will reprise his role as Malcolm Merlyn for at least two episodes, though it remains to be seen under what circumstances.
