With the recent confirmation that DC’s Tatsu and Maseo Yamashiro have been cast in The CW’s Arrow, now comes word that Count Vertigo is returning… kind of.
Whilst Seth Gabel brought a brilliantly over-the-top version of The Count to the first two seasons of Arrow, the Vertigo peddler ending up biting the bullet during Season 2 of the show. Whilst he won’t be returning from the dead, the fantastic Peter Stormare has been cast as a new version of Count Vertigo. The actor, best known for supporting roles in the likes of The Big Lebowski and Fargo, has been cast as Werner Zytle, who is the comic book alias of Count Vertigo. This character will similarly be a dealer of the Vertigo drug.
Arrow is to return to US screens on 8th October, with a UK airing hopefully happening shortly after.
