Is it just us or is it starting to feel a bit like comic book characters are really beginning to take over Hollywood, not only on the big screen but also on the small screen. We have already had a whole host of comic book movies being made, by both Marvel and DC, while both are also bringing us some comic book characters to our television screens.
One of the top comic book television shows that is around at the moment would have to be the hit The CW series Arrow, which continues to get bigger and better every year, bringing in more characters along the way. Another new DC character that is being introduced on Arrow is Tatsu Yamashiro, who is also known as Katana and will appear in season three.
It has now been confirmed that the beautiful and talented actress Devon Aoki has been cast in the role of Tatsu Yamashiro aka Katana for Arrow season three. It has also been confirmed that the new character will have a big part to play in Oliver's life during his flash back sequences during the new season.
It will be interesting to see what Arrow decide to do with Katana and where they take the character, as she certainly has plenty of interesting points. Katana wields a deadly sword, which holds the souls of all the people that she has killed in her life. Meanwhile, she is also a part of the Birds of Prey, as well as the Batman group The Outsiders.
Arrow season three will premiere on The CW on October 8 in the US.
Are you looking forward to seeing Katana in Arrow season three?
