In a somewhat unexpected move, Captain Boomerang, one of the Flash’s most well known rogues is set to debut in the latest series of Arrow this October. This version of Digger Harkness will be played by Spartacus star Nick Tarabay and will be an ex A.R.G.U.S agent looking to wreak vengeance on his former compatriots.
Given the close relationship already established between CW’s Arrow and the upcoming Flash series its likely that Boomerang will star in both shows at some point. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time we have encountered characters from other books visiting Starling City with Huntress usually starring in the Bat family books and Deathstroke traditionally a Teen Titans rogue.
Season 3 will hit US screens on October 8th courtesy of the CW, a UK date has not yet been confirmed.
