Season 6 of Arrow is introducing a bad guy of a different color with genre actor Kirk Acevedo (Fringe, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) taking on the role of Richard Dragon. Hailing directly from the comics, Richard Dragon is officially described as follows:
“A hardened ex-con recently released from prison for crimes he didn’t commit, Ricardo Diaz (Acevedo) is bent on taking over Star City’s criminal underworld. A master in hand to hand combat, honed by years of life on the street, Diaz has yet to meet a foe he can’t take down.”
Though rooted in reality more than your typical Arrow-villain, it is reported that Dragon will be a new and different type of threat altogether to Oliver and Team Arrow.
Check Dragon and other out in the sizzle reel for yourself.
