Last week, we found out that we will be seeing the return of the Huntress (Jessica de Gouw) & we will also see the lovechild of Ra’s al Ghul, Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) in some upcoming episodes of Cw’s Arrow. Now not only did the producers Andrew Kreisberg & Marc Guggenheim hint at Birds of Prey to The Hollywood Reporter but they also hinted at another DC team.

Here’s what Marc Guggenheim said about bringing the Birds of Prey into Starling City:

Birds of Prey is very much the same thing,” explained Guggenhiem when asked about the upcoming episode called “Birds of Prey‘” which will feature the return of the Huntress. “You’re not going to end up with the Holy Trinity of Oracle, Black Canary and Huntress right out of the gate. We’ll get there.”

The producers went on to say that episode 16 is entitled “Suicide Squad.” In this episode, we will see Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) return, which she teams up with John Diggle (David Ramsey) for a mission & she “saddles him with the Suicide Squad, including Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot (Michael Rowe).” This episode will also include flashbacks from Diggle’s time in Afgan with his then-friend Ted Gaynor (Ben Browder) which is part of Blackhawk security in the show.

Ok, it sucks that it’s not the Suicide Squad that we know from the comic books but there have been many, many members that have been a part of the team throughout the years & so far, Arrow has done pretty well with integrating DC characters into the show. As for the future of the Suicide Squad, there has been rumors going around for a few months that DC & Warner Bros. are possibly planning a low-budget film based on the team of villains.

The “Suicide Squad” episode will air March 19 & the “Birds of Prey” episode will air March 26 at 8/7 on the CW.
