(CW) – Neal McDonough has been chosen to play Damien Darhk in the next season of Arrow returning in October 2015.
McDonough is no stranger to super hero shows. He has had a role in “Captain America: The First Avengers,” “Agent Carter,” and ” Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Damien Darhk will most likely become the main villain of the next season. In the last season, you never actually meet Darhk, but you learn that he is an old arch nemesis to Ra’s Al Ghul. Oliver goes to search for him but only finds his servants waiting for Oliver. However, by the end of Season 3, Oliver has put the bow down and left with Felicity. How will the new crew be affected by this and when will the appearance of Damien Darhk come into play? Arrow will return on October 7th with all new episodes.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he created the persona of the Arrow and allied himself with former military man John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), lawyer-turned-vigilante Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), and his sister Thea (Willa Holland). Uneasy alliances and rivalries will shift as Oliver faces his most difficult challenge yet. Based on the characters from DC Comics, ARROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).
