The CW announced that actor Colton Haynes will in deed be back in red as ‘Arsenal’, Oliver’s pseudo-son Roy Harper. And I think that’s GREAT news. I wish he’d never left.
Here’s what the CW had to say – “We’re thrilled to announce that Colton Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper for a short arc on ‘Arrow’ this year,” executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle said. “Roy is called back to Star City to help resolve an urgent matter with high stakes for the team. His short visit turns into something surprising when he reunites with Thea and sparks a change in both of their lives that will have long-lasting consequences…”
Makes me wonder if there’s another wedding on the horizon. I just hope they find a way to keep Roy Harper around. Arsenal could team up with Kid Flash and be part of the new Titans Show. As both are founding members of that team, at least in the comics. OR, there are two empty seats on the Waverider, now that Firestorm is no more. Maybe both Arsenal and Kid Flash could be the two newbies on that show. Hey CW! Are you listening?!!!!!!!!!!
