With ARROW to return to screens in October, Deadline has word that a familiar DC face is going to be brought into the picture. That face will be Tatsu Yamashiro, aka Katana. The character will be played by Devon Aoki (below), likely best known to most genre fans for playing Miho in SIN CITY.
The Katana alias is a name given to Yamashiro for the impressively-badass sword that she wields. Said sword just so happens to contain the soul of everyone who she’s killed, including her late husband. Whether the whole ‘souls in sword’ stuff will be brought to ARROW, we’ll have to wait and see. It’s said that Katana will be a major part of Oliver Queen’s time in Hong Kong, with the conclusion of Season 2 seeing him finally getting off ‘the island.’ In the comic book world, Katana often has ties to the Birds of Prey team. Given how Huntress and Canary have appeared in ARROW, could there be a team-up on the cards at some point?
ARROW returns to The CW on 8th October, with a UK return expected to follow a few weeks after that date.
