We've got some fun news for DC Comics fans! "Arrow" is adding some characters who will be very familiar to fans of the Justice League. In an upcoming episode, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will tangle with the Royal Flush Gang.
Zap2it has exclusively learned that Kyle Schmid, best known for his work on "Being Human" and "Blood Ties," has been cast as Kyle Reston or "Ace."
The Royal Flush Gang, of course, is a band of card-playing villains, which will first appear in episode 106, titled "Legacies." Details are being kept under wraps, but sources say that we'll see a major bank robbery, with a crowd of hostages eventually leaving the building... wearing playing card masks.
Schmid can currently be seen on "Copper" as Robert Morehouse, a wealthy friend of the titular police officer in Civil War-era New York City. (He's also one of Zap2it's Ones to Watch for Fall 2012.)
"Arrow" premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
More Kyle! I'm not complaining.
