Neal McDonough’s sinister Damien Darhk began terrorizing the heroes of the Arrow in last week’s season four premiere, and according to Comicbookresources.com it looks like the villain is wasting no time when it comes to paying visits to the other CW superhero series. During a chat with ComicBook.com at New York Comic Con this past weekend, McDonough revealed that his epically old character will have a part to play on both The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
“You go back to the League — I did an episode of ‘Legends’ last week — and I look exactly the same in 1975 but you see he’s not as confident and doesn’t have such an agenda forty years ago as he does now, so it’s fun to play the different times, you know? Going back in time with Legends, and The Flash — with The Flash, I’m just this crazy, fun, enjoy everything while I kill everybody type of character. It’s just nuts.”
McDonough also spoke to the other big bads that have either plagued or will plague the CW’s “Arrow”-verse series, saying: “I’m enjoying the power that I have because it’s my time,” said McDonough of Damien’s dominance. “It’s not Savage’s time, it’s not Ra’s al Ghul’s time; it’s Damien Darhk’s time.”
Arrow airs on the CW on Wednesday nights. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow arrives on the scene in 2016.
