Arrow - Season 5 - Lexa Doig Cast as Talia al Ghul

Arrow is finally introducing Talia al Ghul.

One of DC Comics' most formidable characters, the oldest daughter of Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable) has only been seen so far in the Arrow-verse in the past as a young girl on Legends of Tomorrow, but The Hollywood Reporter has learned that she will finally appear as an adult on Arrow later this season.

Lexa Doig (Continuum, Stargate SG-1) has been cast in the major recurring role of the half-sister of Nyssa (Katrina Law). Described as "worldly and cultured, an elite warrior who doesn't pick sides but rather creates her own," Talia is an expert hand-to-hand fighter, extremely well-trained in most weapons and highly intelligent. She will first appear in episode 10 and will recur in multiple episodes this season.

"At the end of the day, it'd be so awesome to have Batman on the show. That'd be really cool," executive producer Marc Guggenheim previously told THR. "I don't think that will be happening anytime soon, but you never know… one day. One thing we're always saying… we ended up with a lot more DC Comics characters becoming part of the show than we had ever planned. It wasn't initially part of the pitch or the conception of the show. ... I've learned not to expect anything or make any predictions because the reality has far exceeded any of our initial predictions or initial conceptions."

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
