'Komodo' Is The Latest Villain To Be Cast For Season Three Of ARROW

The highly anticipated third season of Arrow continues to flesh out its cast of characters as an actor has been found to play the villainous Komodo, a bad guy who was recently introduced in the pages of "The New 52" comic book series. Hit the jump for details on who he'll play...

According to Entertainment Weekly, TRON: Legacy star Matt Ward has joined the cast of season three of Arrow as Simon Lacroix, a character better known to comic book fans as the villainous Komodo. Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino's recent run on the Green Arrow comic book series has portrayed the character as a protege of Robert Queen's who betrayed him and kidnapped his daughter to raise as his own. He too is skilled with a bow and arrow and recently pushed Oliver Queen right to the edge. In Arrow, "he’s a deadly mercenary using the code name Komodo, who wreaks havoc in Starling City." Marc Guggenheim shed some light on his role in the series, adding: "Yes, he’s the villain-of-the-week for the second week of the show, but you’ll see that Team Arrow’s pursuit of him is part and parcel of a season-long storyline. You’re going to know what happens to Komodo at the end of the episode, but it will be a little bit tied in better with the season-long mythology than villain-of-the-week episodes have done in the past." It should be interesting to see how much inspiration they take from the comics for Komodo's small screen debut. What do you guys think? Share your thoughts on this news below...
