Promo Reveals First Look at Vigilante on Arrow

"Will the TV Version of Vigilante Hit the Target For Comic Book Fans?"

Arrowverse fans will be treated to a television version of the popular DC Comics character Vigilante in episode seven, according to an Arrow promo released on Thursday by the CW. The character, seen by many as the DC Comics version of The Punisher, will encounter  Team Arrow for the first time later this month.

Vigilante was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez in 1983. The character originally appeared in New Teen Titans Annual #2 and went own to his own DC Comics series in the same year.

Since the character’s original creation, there have been four main versions in the DC universe. The version set to appear on Arrow will likely be the original Adrian Chase version of the character – Chase is currently Star City’s District Attorney.

“When I watch something that’s based off of literature, I’m excited to see the parts that I imagined in my head,” actor Josh Segarra, who plays Adrian Chase on Arrow, told reporters during a set visit last week.

“So when I started reading Vigilante comics, there were little parts where I was like ‘I hope I get to do this,’ or ‘I hope I get to go down this road,’ and so far I’m getting to do a lot of those things.”

“The biggest question that I have for myself as an actor is ‘why does this person become the person that they are?'” Segarra explained to Comic Book at the Arrow 100th episode set party. “So what’s going to be hard is that in the middle of the season I get to introduce Vigilante. So now I’m getting to tell that backstory and we get to tell the biggest pieces and get to show him becoming who he is before episode seven.”
