Arrow Season 5 Set Photos Reveal Artemis, Mr. Terrific & Wild Dog
Fans got their first look at the new Team Arrow in Arrow Season 5 in the Comic-Con trailer that was unveiled during the show's panel. The footage offered our first look at new heroes such as Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), Artemis (Madison McLaughlin and the new villain Prometheus, but today we have a new look at Wild Dog and Artemis in action through new photos from the Vancouver set. The photos reveal both Wild Dog and Artemis in their full superhero costumes, along with Mr. Terrific (Echo Kellum).
These photos, posted by Twitter user PUNKD_Images, features our first look at Mr. Terrific in costume. You may recall that Echo Kellum teased in an interview this summer that he definitely wants to suit up as Mr. Terrific this season, after being introduced as Curtis Holt in Season 4. The character was often seen last season using his high-tech weapon known as the T-Sphere, but we don't know for sure if that will be used in Season 5.
The Wild Dog and Mr. Terrific costumes look to be quite accurate to their comic book counterparts, but the Artemis costume looks quite different. Regardless, all of these new heroes are seen teaming up with Arrow (Stephen Amell) himself, but we don't get a glimpse at who they are preparing to battle. It's possible that these heroes could be squaring off with this season's new primary villain, Prometheus, who we recently saw in new photos.
Wild Dog and Prometheus are just a few of the new characters that will debut in Arrow Season 5. David Nykl is portraying Anatoly Knyazev, David Meunier is playing Knyazev's Russian mob boss Ishmael Gregorm The Walking Dead alum Chad Coleman is playing Tobias Church, Josh Segarra is portraying Vigilante, Carly Pope is portraying Coast City reporter Susan Williams, Tyler Ritter portrays SCPD Detective Malone and former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes has also signed on for a mystery role. Fans may recall that last year, Stephen Amell and Cody Rhodes, who wrestled in the WWE as Stardust, engaged in a rivalry that culminated in a popular match at WWE's pay-per-view event SummerSlam. Cody Rhodes left the WWE in May, and is now trying his hand at acting. He will appear in the third episode of Season 5, but no details about his appearance have been revealed.
This season will also mark the return of Colton Haynes as Roy Harper, but we don't know exactly when he will surface this season. It has also been confirmed that there will be a massive four-way crossover with Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and The CW's new superhero addition, Supergirl, but no details have been given about this epic crossover quite yet. While we wait for more details, take a look at the latest set photos below from Arrow Season 5.
