Arrow Adds Sanctuary’s Ryan Robbins For A Shadowspire Plot Arc

Ryan Robbins (the werewolf guy in Sanctuary, plus recurring roles in Continuum, Falling Skies and The Killing) is set to join season four of Arrow as a villain in a major plot arc.

Robbins will play Conklin, who first appears in episode three in a series of flashbacks. He’s a sadistic and ruthless member of a criminal organisation called Shadowspire, which has been lifted from DC comics continuity. Shadowspire first appeared in Deathstroke #53 in 1995, and attempted to unleash the “Borgia Plague” in Washington, DC, though there’s no reason to assume Arrow will be following that particular plot.

Arrow’s Shadowspire flashback arc will also see Oliver Queen take on the recently announced Jimmy Akingbola’s Baron Reiter (aka Baron Blitzkrieg in the DC Comics, where he is also a member of Shadowspire) as the leader of the criminal organisation.

Other new characters for season four include Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt (aka Mr Terrific in the comics), Captain America’s Dum Dum Dugan Neal McDonough as the villain Damien Darhk and Star Trek: Voyager’s Jeri Ryan as Jessica Danforth, a friend of the Queen family with political ambitions.
