A batch of character descriptions for Season 3 of Arrow has hit the net, which may reveal a new DC Comics superhero in the form of Blue Beetle.
Back last August, Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim teased Kord Industries for Arrow.
Now a character breakdown could be Ted Kord, aka Blue Beetle (via TV Line), or is it for Daniel Garret, the original Blue Beetle?
"‘DANIEL" | Though Daniel could be a fake name to throw off spoilerholics, tthis 20something gent — a major recurring character for Season 3 — is a handsome, enigmatic and highly intelligent entrepreneur developing groundbreaking technology. Though exuding charm and confidence in public, he privately harbors a tragic past that will drive him to become a tech-powered superhero. Watch for this formidable fella to be a love interest for Felicity and a rival of Oliver’s – both personally and professionally.
Other characters mentioned include:
‘SETH’ | A well-educated criminal with grand ambitions and a knack for chemistry, this potentially recurring character gains power over his enemies by exposing them to a drug that drains their willpower. Oh, and he is very much a physical match for The Arrow.
TOSHI | Majorly recurring in (at least) the Hong Kong flashbacks, Toshi will serve as Oliver’s teacher and handler, and eventually become a friend. A well-trained operative, skilled in weaponry, combat and intelligence gathering, he is also a devoted father and husband.
AKIKO | Toshi’s wife is another of Oliver’s Hong Kong caretakers, and is herself highly skilled in martial arts.
