This Year’s Arrowverse Event Casts Its Villain

Things are getting bigger and bigger with each Arrowverse crossover and this year’s villain is no exception.

Jeremy Davies has been cast as Dr. John Deegan in the three-night even. Deegan is a doctor at Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane in Gotham. He’s a doctor, but he might actually be crazier than the inmates.

DC has hinted there might be “more than meets the eye” to the character. What do you think the twist will be? The belief is the character will be Doctor Destiny who first appeared in Justice League of America #5 in June 1961. That character’s name was revealed to be John Dee.

This isn’t Davies first role in the DC world. He was Ritchie Simpson from both NBC’s Constantine and the Justice League Dark animated movie.

The crossover will include Green Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl, and feature the debut of Batwoman.

The Flash is now the strongest man alive thanks to a jolt from one of the new forces! Turning his jacked-up sights to Trickster, the two duke it out inside Iron Heights for utter supremacy.

It’s a slippery slope for the Scarlet Speedster when he must team up with the frosty Commander Cold to stop a powered-up Trickster from trashing Central City. The Trickster’s first target is the maximum-security prison Iron Heights, which could mean a criminal breakout the city would never survive.
