TV News: ARROW Reveals Its Suicide Squad

Yesterday saw the fan-friendly Stephen Amell post a picture of ARROW’s version of the Suicide Squad, which will be seen in an upcoming episode of The CW’s Emerald Archer show. The image was picked up and released in high quality by CBR and can be seen below.

So it appears that Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) has put together a Task Force X squad that consists of Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Shrapnel (Sean Maher), Deadshot (Michael Rowe), Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson) and Arrow-ally John Diggle (David Ramsey).

Since the team’s debut in 1959, the Suicide Squad, much like teams like the Avengers and the Justice League, has seen many different incarnations, although Amanda Waller and Deadshot have often played prominent parts in the team. It’s also worth noting that the Clock King, who is set to debut in next week’s episode, has also been a member of the team at times, as has Count Vertigo, another villain that has appeared in ARROW. In ARROW-terms, though, Vertigo seems to be staying dead after his last demise.

It’s said that the Suicide Squad will appear in the 16th episode of this current season of ARROW.

There's Deadshot and Waller, and that's pretty much it from the main group that's used over the years. Giving how well Arrow's done with its tweaked takes on certain characters, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt here and see what they can come up with.

As for Diggle, I'm thinking maybe it's some sort of deal that Lyla gets herself into and that Digg has to help out with.

Any resemblance between the comic strip and TV versions is entirely non-existent!

I'm very intrigued to see what twisted circumstances would make Diggle join a team which includes two of Oliver's enemies and the man he has sworn to kill. Perhaps Lyla will somehow convince him.
