The CW's Arrow has snagged more familiar faces from the comic world. The archer will have his hands full with a group of criminals who first rumbled with the Justice League. They're being added to the guest list that currently includes Deadshot, Deathstroke, Chyna White, and Huntress.

The Royal Flush Gang is coming to Starling City. The group traditionally consists of members Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten. Although details regarding their appearance are being kept under wraps, it's been confirmed that Kyle Schmid will play Ace. He previously starred in Syfy's Being Human, Blood Ties and BBC's Copper.

The Royal Flush Gang made their comic book debut in Justice League of America #43 from March 1966. When it comes to Arrow, they're slated to appear on the sixth episode titled, "Legacies." Rumor has it that their introduction will center on a huge bank robbery. Below we've discovered some behind the scenes photos (via Yvrshoots) that may be from the episode in question.

Arrow premieres Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
