Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow Cast New DC Comics Heroes
Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow are adding some familiar faces to their respective teams, as both shows have just made casting announcements for new DC heroes in their upcoming seasons.

Arrow will add Rick Gonzales (Mr. Robot) to the cast as Wild Dog, described as a new vigilante in Star City with a "reckless and cocksure nature [that] prompts Green Arrow to take him under his wing." In the comics, the character's name is Jack Wheeler, a former Marine who quit after most of his squad was killed in a terrorist attack. The character will appear in a multi-episode arc, currently as a recurring character.  

On Legends of Tomorrow, Minority Report's Nick Zano is joining the team as series regular Nate Heywood, who in the comics goes on to become superhero Citizen Steel. He is the grandson of Commander Steel, a member of the Justice League, and eventually develops the ability to incorporate steel into his tissue, which affords him super strength. He is one of two new series regulars who will be added for season two, with the other rumored to be female.
