One of two new black characters set to appear on The CW's action-drama The Arrow, in its second season, which returns in October, here's your first look at Michael Jai White as a character named Bronze Tiger, aka Ben Turner, a claw-wielding assassin, who's well known to DC Comics fans as a member of both the League of Assassins and the Suicide Squad.

On Arrow, he'll form an unholy alliance with fan-favorite villain China White (played by Kelly Hu).

The other black actor joining the series next season is Cynthia Addai-Robinson who was recently cast to play Amanda Waller, the A.R.G.U.S. agent in charge of the Suicide Squad

Arrow is based on the chronicles of the DC Comics superhero Green Arrow.

Up next for White, he stars in the first installment of Moonstone Entertainment's Codename: Falcon, titled Favela.

Arrow's second season premieres on Wednesday, October 9 at 8/7c on The CW.

    Son of a BITCH! Those guys at the network CLEARLY stole my idea that I pitched to them last year called "The Dude With The Metal Claw Handles."

    Man, Hollywood is no joke.

    With a title that catchy, I can't say I blame them.

    Why he gotta be ghetto? Looks like a waterfall behind him; maybe he's just tropical!

    Ha ha! Well, we still haven't gotten a black live action Spider-man, but it looks like we have a black Wolverine!

    I love MJ White, and I hope that he can come back for more. Like you said, he's a member of the Suicide Squad, so it would be great if he comes back with the whole team.
