Here's an Awesome Update for DC, Arrow and Wildcat fans! Ted "Wildcat" Grant, a veteran member of the Justice Society and trainer of a number of superheroes - including Black Canary - has been cast in Arrow!
Season 3 of the hit CW show is fast approaching, and we've had a slew of casting news so far; we already reported on Brandon Routh playing The Atom and now J.R Ramirez is set to join the ensemble as Wildcat! In Arrow, Wildcat (who will be younger than his comics counterpart) "will be a former boxer who now runs a gym for underprivileged youth". It was also noted that he would play a major part in Laurel Lance's arc this season, and coupled with hints that Laurel was going to progress towards taking on the Black Canary mantle and the history of the two characters in the comics, it's pretty safe to assume that Wildcat is going to train Laurel to a Black Canary level.
