After learning that Star City has a new baddie in town in the form of Prometheus in this week’s Arrow, Oliver Queen and his team will have their hands full in next week’s episode as the new big bad is upping his game. The CW released official promotional images today for the sixth episode of Season 5 titled “So It Begins”.
But there is another reason why next week is a big deal as it will mark the debut of Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables, Rocky IV) who will be the big bad in the flashbacks. Lundgren will be playing the role of Konstantin Kovar who Oliver has been going after in the Russian flashbacks this season. In the comics lore, Kovar is the father of the Teen Titans member, Red Star.
You can check out all the images below along with the extended trailer and the official description for “So It Begins”, but be aware of some potential spoilers.
