After only one season, Arrow has solidified its place in geekdom by bringing in familiar genre faces in a variety of roles tied to the DC Comics mythos.
From Torchwood's John Barrowman and X-Men's Kelly Hu to Spartacus' Manu Bennett, Fringe's Seth Gabel and Doctor Who's Alex Kingston, Arrow has seemingly proven its ability to snag the best stars from the genre universe for roles like The Count, the Dark Archer and Deathstroke. These casting coups raise two very important questions: Which other fan-favorite genre actors would you like to see on Arrow? And which DC Comics character should they play?
Following the casting of Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev, we'd love to see her former Dollhouse co-star Amy Acker take on Kate Kane, otherwise known as Batwoman. We could totally see Beautiful Creature's Zoey Deutch playing Cheshire, which would throw a wrench in the relationship between Roy (Colton Haynes) and Thea (Willa Holland). It goes without saying that Green Lantern/Hal Jordan needs to eventually appear, but who could put on that ring? David Tennant, maybe?

The second season of Arrow premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8/7c on The CW.
