The First Look At Deadshot In Arrow

We’re still a week away from the premiere of the CW’s next venture into the DC universe, Arrow, but in the meantime we’ve got the first images of the villain Deadshot who, The Huffington Post reports, will make his debut in episode 3.

Deadshot is a hired assassin and the world’s greatest marksman, best known for (almost) never missing a shot. Arrow‘s Deadshot will be played by Michael Rowe, but the character also made an appearance in Smallville‘s 10th season, played by Bradley Stryker.

Deadshot will be the second iconic DC villain the show features, with Oliver going head to head with China White in episode 2.

Arrow is starting to get me pretty excited. I like that they’re bringing Deadshot into the show so early and from the images we have, Rowe definitely looks the part. Deadshot is one of my favorite DC villains too so I can’t wait to see how they handle such a complex character.

Arrow premieres Wednesday, October 10th (8 p.m. ET) and be sure to tune in on the 24th to check out Deadshot.
