With the second season of The CW’s ARROW drawing ever closer, the show has officially cast its Amanda Waller. Set to debut in the sixth episode of the season, titled ‘Keep Your Enemies Closer,’ Waller will be played by SPARTACUS’ Cynthia Addai-Robinson. TV Guide broke the news.

In the comic-book world, Waller is essentially DC’s version of a devious Nick Fury. Assembling teams of villains, such as the Suicide Squad and A.R.G.U.S., Waller is quite the piece of work. In ARROW, she’s set to head-up a plan to kidnap Oliver Queen’s right-hand man, John Diggle. She’ll also apparently be bringing together a team of sorts, with Bronze Tiger and Deadshot both joining her ranks.

Waller has previously appeared in SMALLVILLE, portrayed by Pam Grieg, and in DC’s doomed GREEN LANTERN film, played by Angela Bassett.

Season 2 of ARROW is set to premiere on Wednesday, 9th October, with the UK expected to get the show a few days after this date.
