Rila Fukushima is making a relatively rare Marvel-to-DC jump. The actress, who played Yukio in The Wolverine, is set to star in the upcoming third season of Arrow as Tatsu Yamashiro (aka Katana). Deadline reports that Fukushima replaces Devon Aoki, who had to leave the series due to scheduling problems.
In the comics, Katana is a skilled martial artist who gets her name form the deadly sword she wields which contains the souls of everyone she has killed. Whether the supernatural part will manifest in the show isn't known.
