August 2nd, 2012 by Christopher Williams Comments

Looks like Green Arrow is going to have his hands full when Arrow debuts this fall.

TV Guide Magazine is reporting that Canadian actor Michael Rowe will step into the role of DC super assassin Deadshot, the villain who never misses.

Deadshot had long been a thorn in Batman’s side in the comics before getting more exposure as a member of the villains turned government agents Suicide Squad.

The character will make his live action debut in episode 3 titled ‘The Lone Gunman’.

He’ll join a growing list of baddies Green Arrow will face as Kelly Hu has been confirmed to be playing drug cartel leader China White, while a shot of Death Stroke’s mask was featured in a clip shown at Comic-Con, see our story here.

According to the show’s executive producers Deadshot will see life beyond this one episode.
