Team Arrow definitely earned some vacation time after their battle with the League of Assassins last season, but all good things must come to an end, and it has been revealed who else will be giving the group trouble in Season 4.
Falling Skies’ Ryan Robbins has landed the role of Conklin, a “sadistic and ruthless” character who is part of Shadowspire. In the comics, Shadowspire is a criminal organization that supplies drug cartels, corrupt governments, and others with supplies like weapons and technology. In the new season of Arrow, this group of villains will appear in the flashback sequences. Shadowspire will be led by Baron Reiter.
Jimmy Akingbola has been cast as Baron Reiter/Baron Blitzkrieg – he’ll be an antagonist in the flashbacks – while Neal McDonough’s Damien Darhk, the leader of the villainous group H.I.V.E., is set to present Oliver Queen and his friends all kinds of trouble in present day. Several other characters will also make their debut – including Anarchy and Mr. Terrific.
