Entertainment Weekly is reporting today that another Green Arrow villain will be coming to Arrow during an episode of its third season. Actress Amy Gumenick has been cast as Carrie Cutter, better known as Cupid. In the comics, Cupid was a former soldier who underwent experimental procedures. The procedures eventually drove her mad and she grew an unhealthy obsession with the Green Arrow.
In talking of adding Cupid, Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said:
“I always loved the idea of Green Arrow having a crazed fan. When I was writing the comic book, my big goal was to create a villain who would last. Cupid has since appeared in the DC Nation shorts on Cartoon Network, and to have her fight our TV Arrow is so much more than I ever could have hoped for the character.”
