‘Arrow’ Adds Another Vigilante For Season 5 … DC’s ‘Vigilante’
More and more DC heroes have joined the ranks of Arrow in four seasons, though Season 5 seems to have them coming out of the woodwork. Following yesterday’s addition of Rick Gonzalez’s “Wild Dog,” Arrow Season 5 now adds Josh Segarra in a series regular role as DC’s own … well, “Vigilante.”
According to Deadline, Chicago P.D. alum Segarra will pop up in Season 5 as Mayor Queen’s new District Attorney (R.I.P. Laurel) Adrian Chase, described as “an ally who aims to clean up the streets through the legal system.” Comics first introduced the character in 1983 New Teen Titans, there a New York City DA whose family was killed by mobsters.
Elsewhere of Season 5, we know that Oliver’s tenure as Star City mayor will pit him against an “apex predator” crime boss influenced by The Wire villain Stringer Bell, with a hint of Jason Momoa. Stephen Amell has also downplayed the likelihood of The Flash’s time-turning twist affecting any Arrow chronology, while we’ll also have Echo Kellum elevated to series regular as Curtis Holt, and Colton Haynes reportedly returning as Roy Harper for a number of episodes.
We’ll likely hear more of Arrow Season 5 on the road to Comic-Con 2016, but what make we of the new heroes and villains joining the ranks?
