Jimmy Akingbola To Play DC Comics Villain 'Baron Blitzkrieg' In Season Four Of ARROW

We already know that season four of Arrow is going to shake things up for Oliver Queen in a major way as he finally becomes Green Arrow, and now The CW series has added yet another recurring villain to the series in the form of Baron Blitzkrieg. Hit the jump for details...

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Jimmy Akingbola has joined the cast of Arrow's fourth season as the villainous Baron Reiter/Baron Blitzkrieg. He'll go by the former moniker in The CW series, and is described by the site as "an adversary for Oliver"  who will "appear in the show's prominent flashback scenes." In the comics, Reiter leads a group known as Shadowspire and uses Nazi imagery on his costume, but it's not clear how much of that will factor into the series (common sense says he won't be a Nazi). Akingbola has starred in the likes of Sons of Liberty, Holby City, and Rev. This is the latest casting addition to Arrow's fouth season as we recently found out that Neal McDonough as Damien Darhk, Alexander Calvert as Lonnie Machin/Anarky and Echo Kellum as Mister Terrific.
