Another DC/Batman villain set to appear in Arrow?

November 27th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Oh my but we love Arrow. Yes, it’s silly but it’s such great fun…


And it looks like another DC villain, well Batman villain more specifically, is about to join the ranks. A new synopsis for Season 2, episode 9 reads like this:  “After a fight with Cyrus Gold (Graham Shiels), Oliver is drugged and left for dead. Determined to cure him, Felicity makes a risky decision. The cure causes Oliver to hallucinate, and what he sees forces him to confront his past.

Meanwhile, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) continues to help Felicity, and their connection grows stronger. The Arrow asks Lance to look into Gold, but when the stakeout on Gold goes bad, someone is killed.”

Anyone who knows their DC lore will know that Cyrus Gold is the name of the man who would become the monstrous zombie-esque Solomon Grundy (born on a Monday)… could this be more universe building in the show?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
