Matt Webb Mitovich of TVline.com is giving us two scoops of news for Arrow and The Flash fans involving villains for the second episodes.
Season 3's second episode will find Oliver hunting down a vicious killer and mercenary who is wanted for murder in seven countries and now is targeting victims who are associated with a specific company.
I am hearing that the second metahuman The Flash will face off against might make us all feel a bit… well, Mist-y.
With the first one we could go anywhere as mercenary killers are pretty common in the DC Universe. But there have already been a few introduced in the series like Deathstroke, Deadshot and Merlyn. Maybe this is what Malcolm Merlyn is up to when season 3 opens. And maybe that company involves Ray Palmer. Or maybe this is how we meet the current version of Katanna. There is no gender in his scoop.
As for the second one, well there is a DC comic character called Mist. Or two of them actually, Kyle Nimbus and then his daughter Nash, both went up against Starman. I would think for a CW show, they would go with the younger female Mist over the older male version.
Though it does seem a little odd to go to a Mist based character after having Weather Wizard as the first villain and him using fog the few times we see him start to use his powers. And with so many Rogues to choose from, why go into someone else's villains so soon?
