The CW network has just released some information of its popular series Arrow‘s midseason finale titled “Three Ghosts” which will air on December 11th. Based off the following synopsis, many are speculating that DC villain, Solomon Grundy could be making a cameo.
“After a fight with Cyrus Gold AKA the Acolyte (guest star Graham Shiels), Oliver is drugged and left for dead. Determined to cure him, Felicity makes a risky decision. The cure causes Oliver to hallucinate, and what he sees forces him to confront his past. Meanwhile, Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) continues to help Felicity, and their connection grows stronger. The Arrow asks Lance to look into Gold, but when the stakeout on Gold goes bad, someone is killed. Roy (Colton Haynes) is captured and tortured by Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro). John Behring directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Geoff Johns & Ben Sokolowski.”
I know, you are saying, there is no mention of Grundy in that description, but as everyone is pointing out, Cyrus Gold is Solomon Grundy‘s “human name” in the comics. Now whether they just borrowed the name as another Easter Egg, or if they will actually take it further remains to be seen.
Should the Arrow series expand even more into the DC universe with characters such as Solomon Grundy, Lobo, and Green Lantern (just to name a few), or is the series already pushing its realistic setting with The Flash already coming? Sound off with your thoughts! (Source: SuperHeroHype)
