Big bad revealed for this year’s Arrowverse crossover event, plus Katherine McNamara joins Arrow cast

September 27th, 2018 by Marc Comments

We already know that this December the Arrowverse will be heading to – gasp! – Gotham City to meet Batwoman and Nora Fries… but why?

We still have no idea why Arrow, Flash, Superman, Supergirl and Lois Lane will need to form a team head to comics’ greatest city.

But now we may have an idea.

Lost and Lord of the Rings star Jeremy Davies has signed on to play the main bad guy in the adventure – and he’ll be familiar to fans of the Arkham games.

Davies will play John Deegan, a doctor at Arkham Asylum who is crazier and more dangerous that the patients he treats!

In addition to that, it seems that fans of the Shadowhunters show can rejoice as actress Katherine McNamara has joined the Arrow cast and will appear early next  season as “Maya, a scrappy street fighter and thief from Star City.”

Word is it will be a pivotal and recurring role for the show… but who could she be?

We’re as curious as you are…

Arrow Season 7 will see Colton Haynes return to regular cast  member as As Roy Harper, and the arrival of Holly Elissa (Supernatural), Miranda Edwards (The Magicians), Michael Jonsson (Van Helsing) as the Longbow Hunters.

Arrow strikes back on Monday, October 15th on the CW and we can’t wait!

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….
