Devon Aoki (2 Fast 2 Furious, Sin City) will be playing the sword wielding badass, Katana, in a recurring guest role on Arrow as reported by Deadline.

She is a Japanese martial arts expert who wields a deadly sword, a blade from which her codename Katana is derived. In Arrow, Tatsu will be one of Oliver’s mentors in the flashbacks and a critical influence on his journey to eventually become The Arrow of present day.

It’s always great to have a woman of colour cast especially after the Sin debacle of season 2 in which the character was originally asian. What do you guys think? Excited for the introduction of Katana to the series? What about Aoki’s casting?

One thought on “Arrow Casts Katana For Season 3

  1. I am so behind on Arrow it isn’t funny BUT I find the character of Katana really interesting and I love how Arrow slowly seems to be turning into Birds of Prey.
