A Live Action Captain Boomerang Will Be a Thing

Someone somewhere has decided that a man whose claim to fame is throwing boomerangs will pose much more of a challenge to a man who shoots arrows instead of a man with super speed. In other words, Captain Boomerang will appear on Arrow in Season 3 instead of The Flash.

He’ll also be played by Nick Tarabay, of Spartacus, according to Entertainment Weekly.

At least one of them is Australian

Though according to the article, he’ll be part of the two show crossover coming up this fall, so maybe that’s something.

I watched Spartacus, and it was really good. Tarabay played the jackass, so I bet he’d make a good villain. He seems like he has the cocky smarm to play someone like Captain Boomerang. Also according to the article, the Cap’n will be a former ARGUS operative who’s possibly gone rogue. New Suicide Squad member, perhaps?

I only hope the boomerang effects are as good as the bow and arrow effects.

  1. People keep saying that DC needs to “make a move” if they want to catch up to Marvel but look at their TV shows, they are plentifully and keep getting better and better, giving fan favourite characters like this a shot they would never get in a movie. Honestly by the time BvS comes out DC will already have TV on lock

  2. I freaking love Captain Boomerang. Ever since he made that badass appearance in Flash: Brightest Day. He actually inspired me to learn how to throw a boomerang and catch (not as easy as he makes it look)
