“Arrow’s” rogues gallery is expanding next season with the addition of Bronze Tiger and Sebastian Blood to The CW’s breakout superhero drama.
Executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg announced Saturday at Comic-Con International in San Diego that Michael Jai White (“Spawn,” “Mortal Kombat: Legacy”) will guest star in Season 2 as Ben Turner, better known to DC Comics readers as Bronze Tiger. On “Arrow” he’ll be an assassin who forms an alliance with high-ranking Triad member China White (recurring cast member Kelly Hu).
Kevin Alejandro (“True Blood,” “Southland”) will appear as Sebastian Blood, inspired by longtime Teen Titans villain Baron Blood. On the TV series, Blood is an alderman who rises to power as a man of the people following the earthquake the devastated part of Starling City in the Season 1 finale — a disaster he blamed on the Queen family.
The two join recent additions Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev and Caity Lotz as Black Canary.
