The Hollywood Reporter has word that The CW’s ARROW has cast MEDIUM’s David Cubitt as Mark Shaw, aka Manhunter. Cubitt will first appear in the third episode of the upcoming Season 3, with Shaw being an A.R.G.U.S. operative based in Corto Maltese and who will butt heads with David Ramsey’s Diggle.
There have been many versions of Manhunter over the years, not to the mention the android race of Manhunters who were seen as a prelude to the Green Lantern Corps. Mark Shaw is somebody who took on the aggressive persona of Manhunter after he disagreed with the American judicial system and the way that criminals could manipulate the law. Shaw’s main gripe was that the powers-that-be went too easy on crime. After often facing off against DC heroes, particularly Green Lantern, Shaw saw the error of his ways and became the Privateer, although that stint as a hero was short-lived when it was revealed he was still up to no good as the Star-Tsar. How the character plays out in ARROW, we’ll have to wait and see.
Season 3 of The CW’s Emerald Archer-centric show premieres on 8th October in the US, with a UK return for the show set to follow later that month.
