Fans of "Arrow" season 5 will have new exciting episodes to watch. A new enemy has been tapped by the CW producers to make the life of Oliver Queen even more difficult. A report from the Hollywood Reporter indicated that Talia al Ghul will arrive and will be one of the hero's enemies. Lexi Doig, star of "Continuum" will play the role of the new enemy of the hero.
Who Is Talia al Ghul?
The new enemy of the Arrow is also a half-sister of Nyssa. She is portrayed as a "worldly and cultured elite warrior who doesn't pick sides but creates her own." She will be introduced in "Arrow" season 5, episode 10. Her inclusion in the show could possibly mean major implications if the writers have chosen to follow the comics story.
It seems unlikely that Batman will also appear on "Arrow" season 5 but the producers of the show are not discounting the idea. "At the end of the day, it'd be so awesome to have Batman on the show," said Marc Guggenheim, executive producer of the show. "I don't think that will be happening anytime soon.... One thing we're always saying... we ended up with a lot more DC Comics characters becoming part of the show than we had ever planned," he added.
Talia al Ghul Has Been A Mainstay Detective Comics
Detective Comics introduced Talia in 1971. Her character was created by Dick Giordano, Bob Brown, and Dennis O'Neil. She is the daughter of an enemy of Batman, but has developed a soft spot for Bruce Wayne and helped him at times. She and Bruce have a child, Damian Wayne. She has also appeared in "The Dark Knight Rises" released in 2012 with Marion Cotillard playing her role. She is also included in the "Batman: The Animated Series."
