It looks as if Arrow's third season is shaping up nicely! The show revealed its new Big Bad at Comic-Con last weekend, and now Emily Owens, M.D. and Power alum J.R. Ramirez has been tapped to play Wildcat, TV.com has confirmed.
In the DC Comics, Ted Grant is a member of the Justice Society for America, as well as the mentor and trainer of other masked vigilantes, including the Black Canary. On Arrow, Ted "Wildcat" Grant will be a former boxer who now runs a gym for underprivileged youths. A man with a mysterious past, he will play a pivotal role in Laurel Lance's (Katie Cassidy) arc.
In possibly related news, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg recently teased that Laurel will be getting a new love interest in Season 3. Could Wildcat be it?
Arrow returns Wednesday, October 8 at 8pm on The CW.
