The character’s “normal” name is Mark Shaw, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He will be an A.R.G.U.S. operative who crosses paths with Diggle in the third episode of the upcoming season, “Corto Maltese.” There is no word yet as to what role Shaw will play on the show — in the comics, each of the several Manhunter characters were typically darker heroes. One Manhunter alter-ego, Kate Spencer, has already appeared on “Arrow,” as a Starling City District Attorney in Season 2.
In addition to playing Detective Lee Scanlon on “Medium,” Cubitt recently recurred on “Bates Motel.”
“Arrow” Season 3 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
