Here’s some more casting news for season three of Arrow: the role of Tatsu Yamashiro, AKA the DC Comics heroine Katana, will now be played by Rila Fukushima. Fukushima will replace Devon Aoki, who had to back out of the role due to a scheduling conflict.  Fukushima is best known for her role in The Wolverine – hey, at least we know that she can use a sword!

On Arrow, Tatsu/Katana plays the wife of Maseo Yamashiro, Oliver Queen’s handler. Both Tatsu and Maseo will serve as mentors to Oliver in a series of flashbacks. We’ll get to see them both – along with Fukushima’s cool sword-wielding abilities – when Arrow season three premieres October 8.
