Falling under the category of “You Can Never Have Too Much of a Good Thing,” Neal McDonough will bring Arrow baddie Damien Darhk to both of the CW superhero series’ offshoots — The Flash and the midseason entry DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
The Justified alum made his Arrow debut in the Season 4 premiere as the heretofore unseen ally-turned-adversary of the mighty Ra’s al Ghul. Darhk has a plan to not so much destroy Star City but “let it die,” while among his skillsets are mystical powers that let him fell foes with a touch, or stop arrows mid-flight.
On Legends of Tomorrow, which as detailed during the series’ New York Comic-Con panel on Sunday will flit around time each week, McDonough told ComicBook.com, “I look exactly the same in 1975 but you see he’s not as confident, and doesn’t have such an agenda … as he does now.”
During his visit to The Flash, meanwhile, “I’m just this crazy, fun, enjoy-everything-while-I-kill-everybody type of character.”
The Flash and Arrow air Tuesdays and Wednesdays, respectively, at 8/7c.
