The CW is enlisting a new foil for Arrow’s Oliver (Stephen Amell).
British actor Jimmy Akingbola has nabbed the recurring role of DC Comics villain Baron Reiter — well known as Baron Blitzkrieg — on Arrow’s fourth season.
Akingbola will recur on the series as Baron Reiter, an adversary for Oliver, and appear in the show’s prominent flashback scenes. In the comics, the character is the leader of the nefarious group Shadowspire.
The fictional crime group Shadowspire first made their appearance in Deathstroke No. 53 and supplied South American drug cartels with weapons, transportation, technology and intelligence. The Baron’s other operatives in the group included Steelhawk, Kodrescu, Mourn I and Mourn II.
