Well some unfortunate Arrow news, or possibly good news, depends on your stance. Deadline is reporting that Rila Fukushima (The Wolverine) has replaced Devon Aoki (Sin City, 2 Fast 2 Furious) for the role of Katana. It was revealed back in early July that Aoki was cast in the role, but apparently she is having a scheduling conflict, so she must back out.
Considering that Katana is known for being a Japanese martial arts expert who wields a deadly sword, I’m sure Fukushima will fit into the role just fine. Arrow returns on Wednesday, October 8th at 8pm EST on The CW. (Source: Deadline)
