After the announcement of Star Trek Voyager’s Jeri Ryan joining Arrow his season earlier today (here), another casting has just been announced.

Teen Wolf actor JR Bourne has signed on as super villain Double Down, Jeremy Tell, a human who has tattoos of playing cards on his body that he can remove and use as weapons. In the comics Double Down is a Flash villain; more of a meta-human.

We’re wondering of this means we’ll see more crossovers before the  CW shows or if, perhaps, the events of The Flash season one will see metas becoming a big problem on both shows.

Double Down is set for the third episode of the fourth season.

Arrow returns on October 7th

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.
