We've known they were coming, but here's your first look at the Suicide Squad of the Arrow-verse. From left to right: Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Shrapnel (Sean Maher), Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and Deadshot (Michael Rowe).
Based on the DC team of captured supervillains working for the government agency ARGUS as their sentences, they'll star in the 16th episode of Arrow's second season, airing on March 19th and quite reasonably titled "Suicide Squad," But in the show, they won't be Team Arrow's foes — at least not for Diggle.
As executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explained in a recent press conference, "Dig was our way into Amanda Waller, and in this episode, Amanda comes to Dig and [ARGUS agent and Diggle's ex-wife] Lyla, and she recruits Dig for a mission, and tells him he's going to need a team — and she saddles him with the Suicide Squad." Since Deadshot murdered Diggle's brother, this should go swimmingly.
