Arrow Season 2 has done all it can to bask in the Dark Knight trilogy’s reflective glory but cast Talia and Ra’s al Ghul, played by Marion Cotillard and Liam Neeson in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises and Batman Begins.

According to TV Guide, The CW superhero show is coming perilously close, casting Spartacus: The War Of The Damned star Katrina Law as Nyssa al Ghul, the half-sister of Talia and daughter of Ra’s, the infamous head of the League of Shadows which trained Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) in the Dark Knight movies and Arrow villain Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman).

Nyssa is set to debut in Arrow Season 2 Episode 13, arriving in Starling City to hunt down Caity Lotz’ Black Canary.

Arrow Season 2 is airing every Monday at 8pm, on Sky 1 HD and Sky Go. Arrow Season 1 is out now on DVD for £21.02 or on Blu-ray for £27.49 from Amazon.co.uk.
