Especially for DC fans disappointed by the piss-poor Birds Of Prey, the arrival of Jessica De Gouw’s The Huntress – the alias of vengeful vigilante Helena Bertinelli – is definitely one of the more eagerly anticipated bits of The CW’s Arrow.

Well wait no longer, as the Huntress will be appearing for two episodes, starting with episode 8, ‘Vendetta’.

“She is the dark mirror version of Oliver,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly, “and it was a nice contrast to him because he’s pretty extreme. He goes a lot further than not only his comic-book version, but lots of comic-book characters – most have a code of draws the line against killing… Oliver has taken the darkness inside with him and is doing something positive with it. She’s taken the darkness inside her and is seeking revenge, and doesn’t care who gets hurt in the process.”

Arrow is now airing on Sky 1 HD.
