Arrow has cast its main Season 3 nemesis.

Per a network press release, Matt Nable (“Riddick”) will come on board this CW smash as Ra’s al Ghul, an iconic villain from the pages of DC Comics.

  • Arrow bad guy
  • Villain on Arrow

The character will debut on Arrow Season 3 Episode 4 (the show's 50th installment overall) and will serve  as the leader of the League of Assassins. He's also the father of ​Katrina Law's Nyssa al Ghul.

Ghul is a bad, bad man: unforgiving, ruthless, proud, intelligent, a master of martial arts and protector of some significant secrets.

Nable will appear on multiple episodes in this villainous role.

It's been a major couple days for the series: earlier today, we posted photos from Arrow Season 3 Episode 1, while a new (AWESOME!) promo just hit the Internet as well.

Arrow Quotes

Laurel: Helena, you don't have to do this.
Helena: Yes, I do. Because once you let the darkness inside, it never comes out.

Are you done?
Oliver; Yeah, I'm done. I'm done taking the blame and I'm done caring. Why don't you go have a drink. Get wasted. Go to Verdant. I'll pay for it. I have loved you for half of my life but I'm done running after you.
