Cody Rhodes Teasing Possible Villainous Role On ’Arrow’

A few weeks ago at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in New Jersey, Stephen Amell, the star of CW’s Arrow, revealed that former WWE wrestler Cody Rhodes (Stardust) would be coming to Arrow for an episode. His role wasn’t revealed at the time and we still don’t know who he is exactly playing, but a recent Twitter photo from Rhodes may be hinting that he is going to face off with the Green Arrow.

“Destroy Queen” is a caption on his jacket and given that Oliver Queen will be dealing with his mayor storyline in Season 5, maybe this tweet is a hint that he could be an opponent of Oliver rather than Green Arrow.

“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), former police captain Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), and brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum). But sinister players with a connection to Oliver’s past will push the team to its breaking point, threatening everything Oliver’s worked for and his legacy as the Green Arrow. Based on the characters from DC, ARROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Marc Guggenheim (“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “Eli Stone”) Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”), Wendy Mericle (“Desperate Housewives”) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”).”

Arrow Season 5 is set to premiere on Wednesday, October 5 at 8/7c on The CW
