“Hellboy” and “Pan’s Labyrinth” actor Doug Jones is set to play electrically-charged DC super villain Deathbolt in an upcoming episode of The CW’s “Arrow” says IGN.
While Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) has appeared on the show, this marks the first real super-powered villain that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will take on.
Jones’ appearance will come in the current third season’s nineteenth episode and will be entitled “Broken Arrow”. In the show, the character will “be a metahuman with the ability to harness and weaponize plasma energy.”
Meanwhile a new clip from tonight’s episode has gone online and showcases the return of last year’s key villain Deathstroke (Manu Bennett).
