The cast of the fourth season of Arrow just got a little bigger. British actor Jimmy Akingbola has been cast as Baron Reiter, also known as Baron Blitzkrieg, for the fourth season of Arrow, via THR. The character will be a recurring role for the season.
In the comics, Blitzkrieg first appeared in WORLD'S FINEST #246. Throughout the years, Blitzkrieg fought Wonder Woman and the All Star Squadron and had his face deformed with a vial of acid. The character is primarily known for his connection to Hitler and working in concentration camps during the World War II. Don't expect to see any of that in Arrow.
Arrow's version of Reiter will be an adversary for Oliver Queen and will appear in flashbacks. This is one of the many new characters announced for the season. Neal McDonough was cast as Damien Darhk, Alexander Calvert was cast as Anarky, and Echo Kellum was cast as Mister Terrific. This sounds like it's going to be a packed season.
Arrow returns to the CW on October 7 at 8/7C.
