Despite Liam Neeson saying last week he would reprise the role of Ra's al Ghul "in a heartbeat," The CW has announced (via star Stephen Amell) that the leader of the League of Assassins will be played by actor Matthew Nable. It was revealed back at the San Diego Comic-Con that the character would be the primary antagonist in the upcoming third season of "Arrow," and now we have a face for the name.

A former professional rugby player, Nable has appeared in a number of television shows internationally but also the 2011 action thriller Killer Elite as well as alongside Vin Diesel in 2013's Riddick.

Though he has been mentioned in a number of episodes in the last season of "Arrow," the third season will mark his official debut on the series where he will be going toe-to-toe with Oliver Queen. The character has appeared in countless comics over the years, as well as the Christopher Nolan Batman films and the most recent "Arkham" titles.

In addition, a new trailer for the upcoming third season of the series has debuted online, which you can check out below.

Also starring Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Colton Haynes, Willa Holland, Paul Blackthorne, and John Barrowman, “Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW with the new season set to premiere on October 8.
