The CW Network's new series Arrow has not been shy about bringing in a plethora of characters from the DC Comics universe this season. We have already seen Deadshot (Michael Rowe) and China White (Kelly Hu), with Deathstroke (Jeffrey C. Robinson) appearing in tomorrow night's episode, "Damaged".
Today, we have word that the villainous Vertigo will be making an appearance later on as Arrow Season 1's main bad guy.
While the role has not yet been cast, this count from Vlatavan will undergo some serious changes for the TV series. For starters, he may not even be named Vertigo at all! The producers plan on using the name Vertigo for a dangerous new drug that spreads throughout Starling City in an episode slated to air in early 2013. It is believed that the villain's superpowers, the ability to disorient his victims, will still remain intact. Perhaps they will just call him Dizzy? Here's what an unidentified source had to say about this nefarious baddie.
"He will be truly scary and nightmarish. (He is) Oliver's deadliest adversary to date."
The character has appeared in animated form in DC Showcase: Green Arrow, and the animated series Young Justice. Stay tuned for more updates about future DC villains making their way onto Arrow this season. The series airs new episodes Wednesday nights at 8 PM ET on The CW Network.
