So in Arrow, despite there not being a Batman (yes, we know Arrow is basically Batman now) we have had Ra’s Al Ghul and his daughter Nyssa. We have also had his more famous daughter and lover of Batman, Talia Al Ghul.

Well now we know that Talia is set to appear in the show itself.

TVLine are reporting that Andromeda, Continuum and Stargate SG-1 star Lexa Doig (above) has been cast in the iconic role, described as “an elite warrior who doesn’t pick sides but rather creates her own.”

Talia was portrayed by Marion Cotillard in The Dark Knight Rises.

With Superman in Supergirl [behave], and now Talia appearing and Lex Luthor and Lois Lane mentioned in the universe, we have to wonder… will we get a Batman in The CW universe? Man, we’d love that…

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….
