The CW’s Arrow casts a Wildcat

The newest casting news for The CW’s Arrow has J.R. Ramirez playing Ted Grant (aka Wildcat) in season 3. Wildcat first premiered in Sensation Comics #1 (in the same issue as Wonder Woman), and is in classic DC Comics canon responsible for training Black Canary and several other key heroes.

He was also a Justice Society member.

Which makes me thing – with Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman off the table (and a Justice League film in the works), maybe The CW (between Arrow and The Flash) isn’t so much building to a B-List Justice League as it is building a Justice Society.

It’s just a thought.

    It’s not really the Justice Society without Jay Garrick and Alan Scott, though.

      I don’t know about Alan Scott, but there are a lot of theories about who John Wesley Shipp is playing…
