Devon Aoki Joins Season Three Of ARROW As 'Tatsu Yamashiro/Katana'

Sin City actress Devon Aoki has joined the cast of Arrow's third season as Tatsu Yamashiro, a character better known in the comic books as the deadly Katana. How big of a role will she play in The CW series? You can find details on that after the jump!


Deadline reports that 2 Fast 2 Furious and War star Devon Aoki has landed what is described as a "major recurring guest role" in the highly anticipated third season of Arrow. She will play Tatsu Yamashiro, a character that they describe as a , "Japanese martial arts expert who wields a deadly sword, a blade from which her codename Katana is derived." Apparently, Tatsu will be one of Oliver's mentors in his flashbacks now that the action has shifted from the island to Hong Kong, and her appearance will have a, "critical influence on his journey to eventually become The Arrow of present day." Whether that means we'll see her in her Katana alter-ego in present day Starling City remains to be seen, but this is a very exciting piece of casting for the DC Comics series.
