ARROW has announced two new comic characters coming to the show in Season 4– Anarky and Mr. Terrific!
Season 4 of Arrow will throw a new villain and a new hero into the mix in Starling City! Alexander Calvert and Echo Kellum have respectively been cast as Anarky and Mr. Terrific.
Anarky aka Lonnie Machin is a very political character in the comics, a child prodigy hellbent on doing anything to right the world’s wrongs. Sadly, he’s got some really intense philosophies that take away any moral dilemmas, meaning he isn’t afraid to cross any lines to get what he thinks is best. The show describes him as “a deranged freelancing criminal who is willing to do whatever it takes to impress a potential employer.”
Curtis Holt is a tech whiz co-worker of Felicity Smoak at Palmer Industries, but he also does superhero work under the alias of Mr. Terrific in his off-time. In the comics, the character (named Michael Holt) is a former Olympian and fights crime with a special hi-tech device of his own creation, the T-Sphere, which can manipulate electrical signals.
Alexander Calvert is best known for his roles in The Returned and Bates Motel, while Echo Kellum was a regular on Sean Saves The World and Rick & Morty. No word yet on how long these character arcs will be.
Filming for Season 4 of Arrow is currently underway.
