In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night ....

New reports out today have revealed that Carly Pope is to join the cast of ‘Arrow’ for the shows fifth season.

‘The Tomorrow People‘s’ Carly Pope will take on the role of Susan Williams in the next instalment of the series, Entertainment Weekly reports.CARLY POPE at PaleyFest Icon Award Show

This addition to ‘Arrow’ could well prove to be great news for fans of ‘Green Lantern’.

In the comics Susan Williams is a news reporter with a special interest in Green Arrow, but she also happens to be the wife of Jim Jordan who is Hal Jordan’s (Green Lantern’s) younger brother.

The addition of Susan Williams to ‘Arrow’ could well confirm a long held fan theory that Green Lantern could team up with the Arrow.

As most comic book fans will tell you. Green Lantern and Green Arrow have worked together a fair bit over the years. They’ve often disagreed when it comes to each others methods and political beliefs, but many a good story has been told with these two heroes. So lets cross our fingers and hope that we’ll get to see the two green costumed heroes team up on the small screen.

Pope will make her debut alongside a growing list of new faces, including ‘The McCarthys’ Tyler Ritter, ‘Mr Robot‘s’ Rick Gonzalez and ‘The Walking Dead‘s’ Chad L Coleman.

You can see all these new faces in action when Arrow returns to The CW in the US on Wednesday, October 5. Sky One airs the show in the UK.
