SpoilerTV (via SuperHeroHype) has reported that the character of Amanda Waller is set to appear in the second season of Arrow, the Green Arrow adaptation that has been a big success for the CW. She would join a rapidly growing cast of DC Comics characters set to appear in the show.
According to the source, the sixth episode of the series “Twill see the introduction of recurring character Amanda Waller who is an agent of A.R.G.U.S. who sends out a team to kidnap Diggle”. In the comics, Waller leads A.R.G.U.S. as a kind of anti-Nick Fury, often proving to be a foe to the Justice League as much as a friend. Indeed, in the current New 52 run, she has created a team specifically designed to bring down the Justice League.
There is no word yet on casting, which will indicate whether they are going with the sexy New 52 version of the character, or the original and somewhat more amply framed version.
Waller would join a cast that has already expanded to include Caity Lotz as Black Canary, Kevin Alejandro as Sebastian Blood, Michael Jai White as Bronze Tiger, Bex Taylor-Klaus as Sin, and the yet to be cast The Flash throughout the series.
Arrow returns to The CW on 9 October 2013.
