Rocky IV star Dolph Lundgren will appear in season 5 of Arrow!

The Swedish strongman is set to appear in the new season of Arrow as a Russian villain in Oliver’s flashbacks. As reported by Collider, executive producer Wendy Mericle explained, “In our flashbacks in Russia — we’re set in Russia this season — we are going to be bringing in Dolph Lundgren as one of our big bads.”

We can only hope he will utter the words, “If Arrow dies, he dies.”
