Actor John Barrowman will reprise his role of Malcolm Merlyn in the upcoming eighth and final season of The CW’s “Arrow”. Numerous other actors who played characters who are now dead in the series narrative – including Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson and Josh Segarra – will also be returning.
Series star Stephen Amell first seemingly let it slip that the actor would return during an appearance at Fan Expo Boston 2019, and Barrowman took to Instagram this weekend to finally confirm the news. With the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover happening later this year, we could be seeing an alternate universe version of the former villain.
That’s not the only DC TV news today. “Fear the Walking Dead” star Michael Mosley is set to play the villain Doctor Light in the upcoming second season of the DC Universe streaming series “Titans”. Doctor Light is able to manipulate light energy and a different gender-swapped version of the character has appeared on screen before in the second season of The CW’s “The Flash”. “Titans” returns September 6th, check out some new artwork for the new season below.
