Executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and gave them some comments on how their version of Ra’s al Ghul will appear and act:

We have a really clever way of doing Ra’s this year that is true to the comic-book origins but different from the way Ra’s was portrayed in the Nolan movies. You don’t want to compete with Batman Begins, even though we’ve always said Batman Begins was a big influence on us. We really wanted our Ra’s to be very different — at least our own Arrow-ified version.

Besides the addition of Ra’s al Ghul, it looks like we’ll also be seeing Roy Harper aka “Arsenal” and Ted Grant aka “Wildcat” join the show’s onscreen cast.

The 3rd season of Arrow will begin on October 8, 2014.
