Huntress Cast for ‘Arrow’ TV Series
Posted by littlewitchuk on August 22, 2012
Arrow, due to start in the US on The CW, has announced that there will be a multi-episode arc in the Huntress will appear. EW.com has released that Huntress will be played by Jessica De Gouw, an Australian TV actress.
Huntress was introduced into the DC universe in 1947 and has had several of her own comic book series including her own Year One Miniseries. Arrow will feature the current version of Huntress, Helena Bertinelli, the daughter of a Mafia boss who vows revenge for her murdered family. In the comics Gotham is her normal stomping ground but it looks like Arrow will bring her to Oliver Queen’s Starling City.
Here’s the official character description:
“Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father’s organized crime empire. But Helena’s blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow.”
As I said at the start I am happy about Huntress being cast as the actress seems to have the right look and it’s good to see that this series is going to have more than just female characters getting into trouble. However I am disappointed as I did hope we would see Black Canary as Oliver’s love interest. I guess there’s still time yet.
