I'm pretty sure that stupid Bat-embargo is still going on, so any chance of a villain from Batman's rogues gallery is slim to nil.

You mean aside from the ones already used or announced? If nothing else, Firefly is a straight out Batman rogue.

those embargoes keep things fresh and different from show to show, otherwise every show or adaptation would be trying to cash in on the popular characters all the time, and original second-tier characters would never have been seen outside the printed page. Popularity is made, it isn't inherent. Bat-villains have no business appearing in another hero's show when that hero himself has enough villains to tango with.

Onomatopoeia's probably my favourite GA villain I hope we do get him somewhere down the line. He's got that zany Steve Ditko thing going for him. What this series needs is more than just assassins as supervillains, it's one of the reasons why the RFG is so appealing at this point.

That might be a theoretical reason to do an embargo, but I don't believe for a second its the actual reason the Bat embargo was started. I am 95% certain it was started because someone at WB hates Bruce Timm and wanted to do whatever he could to torpedo Timm's work.

are you still talking about the embargo during the animated series? that expired with DCAU, or at least was supposed to.

More recently on Smallville CW faced with a bunch of Bat-embargoes thanks to Nolan's movies. The theoretical reasons are there because they happen to be practical as well. The idea is to maximise on the characters by keeping them unique to their own shows/adaptations, not hate on Bruce Timm WB loves the guy!

With the semi-relaunch of the Green Arrow comic, it seems that the new writer will be focusing on creating some new villains. Here is the first one Komodo

Hopefully they can create some interesting new villains that will be adapted to tv.

I would like to add Dr. Hugo Strange to the list. Or maybe Dr. Psycho. I think an evil psychiatrist would be a good addition to the show. Someone who can challenge Oliver on a mental level.

Apparently neither does Firefly.

Really, this show could feature the first regualr appearance of Batman with just one cameo from him or his family. Right now they're transplanting members from his Rogues Gallery and supporting cast into Star City.

As for other villains who could follow in that path way, we could always see the League of Assassins, including Lady Shiva, Shrike, and Bronze Tiger. Heck, Merlyn's technically a memebr in the comics. Maybe that's where he got his training.

You know who I really want to see, Deathstroke. I like the flashbacks, but I want to see him return in the present already.

But I like how they have set up most of the bad guys so far. Deadshot would have been more realistic and more like the comic with body armor. But Still pretty good.

I want to see Azreal (spelling?) a sort of warped version of Ollie's Green Arrow. A brainwashed assassin turned into this by his father.

No. Another example of when this happened (with Huntress) was in the DCAU. The Batman had supremacy over JLU in terms of access to characters, so the bat-family and rogues could not appear, save for cameos. Emabargoes are still in effect as the Wonder embargo affected Smallville, B:TBATB, Teen Titans and Young Justice.

Batman's reboot is already in development, so embargoes will probably be back in effect very soon.

After awhile they could introduce Cupid, who is obsessed with Green Arrow, and hunts down his enemies to prove her love for him lol:



Javeline is another GA villain from the comics that could make an interesting opponent on the show. He's a former Olympic athelete turned criminal/mercenary, with an arsenal of javeline trick based weaponry:

Kate Spencer/Manhunter
has appeared on the show played by Chelah Horsdal


But they are apparently recasting her with Ashley Scott to be the new Manhunter
Quote:
An interesting Tweet came from actress Ashley Scott this afternoon:
@iamAshleyScott: Reading for @DCComics show #Arrow today. So excited about stepping into Kate Spencer’s shoe’s.
Don't know if she will be an adversary of Arrow's or a helpful hand. But there you go. Oh, she could have meant doing the voice of Kate on Young Justice too, another possibility.

I was under the impression that Oliver killed Deathstroke on the island at some point, judging from the fact that in the beginning of the pilot when Ollie's spotted on the island, we can see Deathstroke's mask hanging from a pole like a trophy.

For my thoughts, the Suicide Squad has to be brought in some time, plus I wonder what this show would do with Amanda Waller.

Don't know about killed him, but I do believe that it was Ollie that put an arrow into his eye making him wear the eye patch today.
That's why the arrow was in the blue/black side of the mask

Considering Bludhaven was already mentioned and exists in this world, I'd like to see Lady Vic, Brutale and maybe even Double Dare.

More than anything I'd like to see the writers actually giving a damn about the villains they are using, most of them fell pretty dialed in and aren't getting enough attention to become interesting characters. However, a few villains that I think would fit the general tone of the show as well as the CW budget are Philo Zeiss, Onomatopoeia (could be a season long arc) and Suicide Squad.

Clock King. He is a non-power Green Arrow villain

Captain Cold they could easily enough as well. He could have a liquid nitrogen tank which he fires a instead of a freeze ray gun.

Onamatopoeia
Clock King
Amanda Waller
Suicide Squad
Catman (Loser criminal turned serious threat)
Brick
Prometheus
Lady Vic
Deathstroke(Present day version)

As much as I'd love to see certain Arrow's version of Batman villains like the Joker,Mr.Freeze or Hugo Strange,I just personally find certain ones too directly associated with Batman to allow that. The League of Shadows/Assassians are a notable exception to that due to their being somewhat commonly used as mutual foes.

After watching this week's Young Justice, I wouldn't mind seeing Sportsmaster on the show.
