First Look At Season 6 ‘Arrow’ Villain Richard Dragon

The CW has released a sizzle reel for the upcoming sixth season of Arrow, and it gives us a look at this season’s most-anticipated villain, Richard Dragon.

At around 1:30, fans can get a brief glimpse of Ricardo Diaz, played by Kirk Acevedo.

The character is the Arrowverse’s take on DC Comics villain Richard Dragon, whose character description reads:

“A hardened ex-con recently released from prison for crimes he didn’t commit, Ricardo Diaz (Acevedo) is bent on taking over Star City’s criminal underworld. A master in hand to hand combat, honed by years of life on the street, Diaz has yet to meet a foe he can’t take down.”

Diaz will bring a new kind of threat to Team Arrow, as he will be more rooted in reality than many of the series’ more extravagant villains from earlier seasons.

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim said in an interview, “You know, what I really like about our interpretation of Richard is, he’s very grounded. He’s not a flamboyant big bad, he doesn’t wear a costume, he really is a crimelord sort of in the Tobias Church model. For Tobias we only really saw him for about five episodes, so we were excited about the prospect of doing a cool, gritty crime lord, but for a longer period of time. We’ve never really done that on the show before, so it’s different.”

Arrow returns October 12th.
