Here's an Awesome Update for DC, Arrow and Ra's Al Ghul fans! Ahead of the premiere of Season 3, The CW have released a trailer and the casting announcement for big DC villain, Ra's Al Ghul - Matt Nable!
Matt Nable is an Australian actor and former professional Rugby League player who's most notable western film credit is Riddick, and his TV credits include Underbelly and Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms. He will be playing the enigmatic Ra's Al Ghul, leader of the League of Assassins and shaper of history. The character has been teased numerous times in the show already, but his first appearance won't be until episode 3 - Arrows 50th episode overall - of this coming season.
The trailer itself shows some Olicity love, with Ollie and Felicity apparently trying out dating. Oliver/Arrow seems a lot happier in and of himself after the finale of Season 2, and everything is going peachy - or, at least, it is at first. We also get glimpses of Roy in his Arsenal set up, newcomers Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom) and Peter Stormare (Werner Zytle/Count Vertigo) and even a sequence where Oliver uses a firearm.
What do you think, are you excited to see the upcoming season? What are your hopes for the story? Are you happy with the Ra's casting? Let us know in the comments below!
