SDCC – Arrow Panel: I CALLED IT! Plus The First Trailer for Season Two

There are few things I like better than getting things right. You got puppies, chocolate and peanut butter covered marshmallows, and me being right. Now why am I saying this? Because this weekend at Arrow’s SDCC panel the creators revealed that Sebastian Blood is coming to Starling City, and he will be played by Kevin Alejandro of Southland fame. As some you know, Sebastian Blood goes by another name in the comics: BROTHER BLOOD. And, as some of you hopefully remember, Blood made my  Five Characters I Want to See in Season Two list earlier this year, so I get to put another feather in my cap (it’s a fun-looking cap).

Other fun revelations came out of this panel, including the reveal of  Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev,  Caity Lotz as Black Canary, and Michael “BLACK DYNAMITE” Jai White as Bronze Tiger. This helps to set up a lot of exciting guest stars for Season Two as Ollie aims to become Green Arrow and I am looking forward to Arrow‘s take on these classic characters, and hopefully a few Black Dynamite references for Michael Jai White. Many fans were surprised that the producers are bringing in a new character to become Black Canary, as many thought that Laurel Lane (Katie Cassidy) would eventually take on that role. Colton Haynes, who plays Roy Harper on the show, has been hinting that with all these new heroes coming on board, we might see a team form, similar to what happened in the latter seasons of Smallville. We’ll just have to wait and see if anything comes of that.

We will keep you updated on any more fun news that come about as well reviews of every Arrow episode once Season Two starts up this October. In the meantime, enjoy the first official trailer for Arrow Season Two!
