After watching this past season of GLOW and the excitement for the upcoming Marvel Studios Black Panther, hearing this latest casting announcement news is AMAZING.
According to Variety, Sydelle Noel (GLOW) has joined the cast of Arrow: Season 6; she will play an FBI agent named Samanda Watson, who will be investigating Oliver Queen’s connection to the masked vigilante known as the Green Arrow. She will appear on the CW’s DC Comics-based series in a recurring capacity.
The show’s producers describe Noel’s character as an intelligent and no-nonsense investigator who will not rest until the truth about Green Arrow is revealed.
This announcement comes just after series producer Marc Guggenheim mentioned his desire to add more women to DCTV shows. Diversity and representation has become a key element to the Arrowverse, and Noel’s casting is just the latest example of that.
She will also join new season six regulars Juliana Harkavy and Katie Cassidy, who have portrayed the new and former Black Canary, respectively.
Noel has most recently appeared on Netflix’s GLOW, which was released in June. She is also set to appear in Marvel’s Black Panther movie as a member of the Dora Milaje. Introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War, the Dora Milaje are the all-female bodyguards of the Wakandan royal family.
With its recaptured momentum that ARROW gained in Season 5, this is setting Season 6 to be another thrill ride.

According to this picture we may have a new “Cap”.
Sebastian Stan who plays “Bucky” Barnes aka Winter Soldier posted this pic to his official instagram that shows him with his own version of the famous Captain America shield.
Now there’s has been much speculation as to whether it would be Bucky Barnes or Sam Wilson (Falcon) to pick up the mantle, now this raises even more questions and eyebrows.
However now the other question that must be answered is when will get our 1st In-Action shot of this. Will it be in the Black Panther movie or Avengers:Infinity War
As if the cast that already has been announced wasnt loaded enough this here is definitely putting it over the top. Angela Bassett has joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther. She will play Ramonda, the mother of T’Challa, aka Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in the Marvel mythology.
The Oscar nominee joins Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke and Florence Kasumba in the cast. The superhero made his debut in Disney’s Marvel Universe movies this summer in Captain America: Civil War.
In the comic series, Ramonda was the stepmother to T’Challa, whose actual mother died while giving birth to him. Ramonda was thought to have run away, but it was later discovered she had been kidnapped.
Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler, hits theaters February 16, 2018. Coogler and Joe Robert Cole are writing the script.
Bassett has been busy in Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story anthology series (she was Emmy nominated for roles in 2014 and 2015). She also made her directorial debut with Lifetime’s Whitney Houston biopic Whitney last year.
The news just keeps getting better for Marvel. This is yet another BLOCKBUSTER annoucement.
