FIRST LOOK: Huntress as she’ll appear in Arrow TV series

November 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments


Arrow has impressed some of here at FTN and frankly horrified others and it looks like the newest addition to the show could split us all again…

Entertainment Weekly has published the first image of possible love interest in the show, Huntress. She will be played by the very lovely  Australian Jessica De Gouw (left).

In the current comics Huntress is the daughter of Earth 2’s  Batman and Catwoman, however in Arrow she will be Helena Bertinelli, the daughter of one of Gotham’s mobsters who decided to turn vigilante as per the previous comic incarnation.

Curiously, this isn’t the first time Huntress has appeared on our screens as she was one of the characters in the very ill-fated Birds of Prey a few years back (shudder). Also, if she is a possible love interest, we’re not sure how this will pan out as Oliver Queen – Green Arrow – in the comics is in a relationship with Dinah Lance – Black Canary – who is in the show already, played by Katie Cassidy… either way, he’s a lucky git.

Regarding the look of Huntress in the show, it’s hard to make out much from the image (above) but she certainly looks more like catwoman in a generic black outfit as opposed to the familiar look of Huntress in the comics (below). Either way, we’ll get to argue over her on November 28th when she makes her debut appearance…

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….
