Looks like Wild Dog won't be the only new vigilante in town. According to Deadline, Arrow will be adding Josh Segarra (Trainwreck, Chicago P.D.) to the cast as a series regular for Season 5.

Segarra will play Adrian Chase, a new district attorney and ally of Mayor Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), whose aim is to clean up the streets of Star City through the legal system.

The character and his alter ego, the Vigilante, first appeared in the pages of DC Comics’ New Teen Titans Annual #2 back in 1983 before headlining his own comic book title. Created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez, Adrian Chase was a New York City district attorney whose family was killed by mobsters.

In the wake of the tragedy, Chase sought justice as the Vigilante and at first went to great lengths to make sure he didn’t kill his enemies by making use of non-lethal weaponry, but when he allowed a police officer to die as a result of his actions, Vigilante became more violent. 

Just yesterday, it was revealed that Rick Gonzalez had been cast as Wild Dog on the superhero series.
