GreenArrowTV has gotten confirmation of a guest star/character that will be in the upcoming Arrow episodes “Crucible” and “Keep Your Enemies Closer.”
David Nykl will be playing the role of “Anatoli Knyazev” in both of those episodes. While that’s all we know, a Google search might come up with some hints as to where they might be going with the character… though, that can go on the speculation side as we did NOT get any confirmation that he is [or isn't] anything more. After all, when Brion Markov showed up, he wasn’t a terraforming prince of Markovia with the code-name Geo-Force, now, was he?
It might be worth noting that Knyazev was referenced in Season 1, in the episode “Vertigo.”
“Crucible” airs October 30. Don’t forget a new episode of Arrow airs tomorrow night (Wednesday, October 23) on The CW!
