It won’t be the first time the DC character’s made an appearance on television. The most recent stint was Fox’s Human Target starring Mark Valley as Chance and ran for two seasons on the network. Rick Springfield also played the title role in the 1992 iteration’s short run.

Traval’s most recent credits include Jessica Jones, where he played Will Simpson, and ABC’s Once Upon a Time and Red Widow.

Arrow returns Wednesday, October 5 at 8 p.m. on the CW.

What do you think of the Human Target casting? Who will be after Oliver (and what are the odds it’s Bratva-related)?
