With the recent big news being Ra’s al Ghul confirmed to appear in Season 3 of Arrow, the news that Ted Grant, aka Wildcat, would be appearing seemed to float under the radar for some. Well Deadline is now reporting that House of Payne‘s J.R. Ramirez has been cast in the role.
Ted Grant is said to be pivotal to the arc of Katie Cassidy’s Laurel Lance in Season 3, but nothing else is known on the character at this stage. In terms of the comic book Wildcat, he debuted back in 1942’s Sensation Comics #1, and his main powers are his athleticism and his fighting skills. Also, in some versions of the character, he has the ability to come back from the dead up to nine times. Impressive skills, no?
Arrow return to The CW on 8th October.
