'Arrow' Season 3 Casting Details Hint at New Heroes, Villains and Allies

The CW's Arrow has never shied away from putting its own spin on DC Comics' stable of characters -- and judging by casting information obtained by TVLine, the third season will be no different.

The series is reportedly searching for a quartet of new recurring characters to kick of the third season: Toshi and Akiko will feature into Oliver Queen's Hong Kong-based flashbacks as his handlers and trainers. Back in the present, Oliver will get some competition from a newcomer named Daniel who not only wants to get in on the hero game, but also has a thing for the hero's compatriot and friend Felicity. Finally, the Arrow will have a chemistry-using villain named Seth who uses a drug to drain willpower to contend with.
