J.R. Ramirez To Play 'Wildcat' In Season Three Of ARROW; 'Black Canary' On The Way?

Arrow has chosen J.R. Ramirez (Power) to play Wildcat in season three of The CW series, and based on the official description of his character, it sounds as if we should expect to see him training Laurel Lance - the future Black Canary - just like in the comics...


Deadline reports that J.R. Ramirez has joined the cast of season three of Arrow as Ted "Wildcat" Grant. It was initially revealed at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con that the character would join the series, but there was no mention of who would be playing him. It's said that the role of Wildcat will be a recurring one. In the comics, he was a member of the Justice Society of America and served as both a mentor and trainer to the Black Canary. The description for this version states that, "In Arrow, Grant will be a former boxer who now runs a gym for underprivileged youth. A man with a mysterious past, he will play a pivotal role in Laurel Lance’s arc this season." It sounds an awful lot like we'll see him training Laurel then (played by Katie Cassidy), so her becoming Black Canary could happen sooner than expected. What do you think?
