'Arrow' Casts Batman Villain Anarky
Team Arrow has another villain to contend with.
Bates Motel alum Alexander Calvert has been cast as Lonnie Machin/Anarky, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The character is described as a deranged criminal for hire who does whatever it takes to impress potential employers. At Comic-Con, Arrow's producers revealed Anarky would work with season four big bad Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough).
In the comics, Anarky is known for run-ins with Batman. He's a teenage anarchist who creates gadgets to best the government. Batman does not necessarily see Anarky as a villain, and even agrees with some of his ideas — just not the way he goes about them. More recently, he's been portrayed as a straight up villain in the videogame Batman: Arkham Origins.
Arrow season four four premieres Oct. 7 on the CW at 8 p.m.
