'Arrow' Adds New Villain & Shows Why Ladies Love Oliver Queen

Even though producers are adamant that Arrow will not feature anyone with superhuman abilities like Smallville did, that doesn’t mean they’re going to stop bringing familiar DC Comics characters to the show.

 Zap2it was the first to report that the Royal Flush Gang was coming to Starling City in the sixth episode of the series, “Legacies.” Comic book fans will be familiar with the band of card-playing baddies, who do possess superpowers as well as some flying card tricks up their sleeves in the DC Comics Universe, but don’t expect those traits to carry over to the small screen. The producers aren’t giving away too many plot details, but according to Zap2it, Kyle Schmid (Being Human) has been cast as Ace and there is a bank robbery in the episode that features hostages seen leaving the building in playing card masks.

We have a little less than 4 weeks until Arrow premieres, but in the meantime, The CW has released an all new preview showing us why the ladies love Oliver Queen and giving viewers another glimpse at the dynamic chemistry between Stephen Amell and Katie Cassidy (Laurel) that will start melting our screens on Wednesday, Oct. 10. For now, check out the video below.
