Arrow Season 7: Three New Villains Cast!

at .

When Arrow returns for Season 7, there will be some big changes in store. 

For a start, Oliver Queen will be incarcerated for being the vigilante, and that means he will come face-to-face with some of the people he helped put inside.

While Oliver is facing the music on the inside, his team will be put in some disastrous situations on the outside. There's a no-vigilante rule in Star City, meaning Team Arrow is essentially defunct. 

Holly Elissa 2

But that won't stop the Longbow Hunters who have been sent on a mission by Diaz to exact revenge on everyone close to Oliver. 

Who will be playing the Longbow Hunters, you ask? 

First up is Red Dart, who will be played by Holly Elissa. She is described as "a ruthless and precise killer."

That does not bode well for the team, and we're actually starting to think that Oliver should get out of prison quickly to help save their lives. 

Elissa has previously appeared on the likes of Fringe and Supernatural. 

Miranda Edwards

Next up is Silencer, and she will be played by Miranda Edwards. She is described as "a master of stealth" which will bode well for her when she sets off on her mission to avenge Diaz. 

In all honesty, it's scary to think about what intel she can find out about the key players. If she's that quiet, she's going to be listening for everything, reporting back to the others and then striking when we least expect it.

With a lot of contracts up at the end of Season 7, could the real reason for these new characters be that it will make it easy to reduce the budget of the show for Season 8?

We kid, mostly, but stranger things have happened. 


The final new addition to the cast is Michael Jonsson as Kodia, "a beast of a man with brute force." 

Yeah, we don't like Team Arrow's chances, but if these new villains can teach them a thing or two about loyalty, I may just side with the villains on this one occasion. 

What are your thoughts on these new additions?

Arrow Quotes

Barry: You tortured that guy.
Oliver: I interrogated him.
Barry: When my friends said that you were a criminal, I defended you because I thought you were supposed to be a hero. I thought we were supposed to be better than them.
Oliver: Barry, you live in Central City, where it's sunny all the time and your enemies get cute nicknames. You're not in Central City. I live in the city where my best friend was murdered. Where a woman I loved was shot full of arrows and sent tumbling off of a rooftop, where my mother was murdered right in front of me, so before you...
Barry: My mother was murdered right in front of me, too. But I don't use my personal tragedies to just torture whoever pisses me off.
Oliver: Well I'm sorry, Barry, but I'm not as emotionally healthy as you are.

Oliver: I just need your A game right now Felicity.
Felicity: I don't have it! My friend, our friend, was shot with arrows and fell off of a rooftop. Her body is upstairs right above us in a freezer because we don't know what to do with it, with her, so I am so sorry, Oliver, if I have feelings, but maybe if you did, too... I'm sorry. That was mean. But this is Sara we're talking about. Your Sara. How can you stand there being so cold and rational?
Oliver: Because I don't have the luxury of falling to pieces. Everyone is looking to me to handle things, to make the right decisions. Everyone is looking to me to lead. If I grieve, nobody else gets to.
