    I had actually considered the possibility of Roy Harper being a boyfriend to Thea, Thea eventually getting killed and Roy taking up the Speedy name to honor her.

    Colton Haynes he's cool sad to see him leave teen wolf though his character was starting to get interesting. Nice choice for Roy Harper tho he should be able to handle it quite well and kudos to the people at Arrow they are not holding anything back in this first season.

    They're gonna run out of characters before the season is up. :oldrazz:

    Who is left? Conner, Mia, Brick, and Onomatopoeia?

    Great casting as it looks as if he jumped out of the Young Justice cartoons. This may also destroy the notion of Thea Queen being Speedy.

    How could they mention hotness of actors on arrow and not mention Willa Holland.

    In her own thread I said I don't want her to go anywhere.

    Well we know Thea will be getting some action with a guy.

    Awesome news!!!

    I'm a huge fan of Colton Haynes.

    I was so sad and disappointed when he left "Teen Wolf"

    Now, I can look forward to seeing him on TV again, although I prefer to see him on the big screen.

    Great that he's getting work.

    Inching ever closer to my drug addict/dead Thea Queen theory. I think it's a little early to have him on the show but maybe his turn to Speedy will be a slow transformation over multiple seasons.

    I definitely also agree that it will be a gradual transformation.

    I think that's how this show is played. They introduce a lot, but it's seeing how every character evolves from season 1. Tricky, but I trust them and can't wait to see how they have this lined out for years to come.

    So glad this show has matched up fairly well with the comics now. It began with the two Huntress episodes and now with both Merlyn the Magician and Speedy/Red Arrow being in it I'm liking it way more.

    He's making history by being the first live-action Roy Harper.

    Sucks he wont be a red head, but I can accept him as Roy. Now they just need to bring Dinah around to where the head strong woman she is in the comics. Also hope they keep or develop the bond between Dinah/Roy/Ollie.

    This is great news, I honestly didn't think we'd get Roy Harper so soon if at all!

    He seems...wrong for the part. :/ Like when I heard a Teen Wolf alumni was cast as sPeedy, I thought the guys who played Scott or Stiles. Someone who's wet-behind-the-ears, maybe a wiry teenage frame. Colton's more of a male-model quarterback type. It feels this was a studio decision that everyone needs to be some buff dreamboat. Not to mention he's easily as ripped and not much younger than his would-be master.

    But hey, first impressions. Prove me wrong, Arrow! :D

    Maybe Roy will join Green Arrow's team (that include John Diggle is partner/second in
    command/strategist or whatever, Felicity Smoke as tech support) and Roy becomes
    his Weapons guy Arsenal.
    But what if Roy Harper starts dating Thea?

    Maybe in some complicated story, Ollie starts bonding with his sister by training her in
    combat and with archery. Just a way for them to reconnect and bond, plus he could be
    helping her to know how to protect herself. And over time she could find out about his
    "friends" Diggle, Felicity, and Roy. She still isn't a sidekick yet, and perhaps never will.
    He calls her Speedy to the group. She and Roy have a connection and start dating. So
    you get the Speedy/Roy/Arrow's sidekick connection in a round about way. Plus it
    would create conflict in Roy and Ollie's relationship (which is going to happen anyway
    because that is their relationship).
    Plus it all gives Thea's character something more to do than complain about Ollie.
    I really think this is where they should go. (Having Thea train with Ollie, and
    accidentally find out about him being Arrow and his team, and then dating Roy.)
    and who knows, I was right about [BLACKOUT]who the archer Merlyn would be.[/BLACKOUT]

    Looks like Roy Harper from the comics but isn't he a little too old? I guess they've git their reasons, great choice loved him on Teen Wolf.

    Well Ollie is suppose to be at least 10yrs older than Dinah but we saw what they did there. But in the new52, they are all around the same age now anyway.

    As far as I know Roy Harper doesn't have superpowers ever.

    These are the costumes Roy had in the comics. His Red Arrow, Speedy, and Arsenal costumes could be translated into him just wearing some sort of SWAT type gear maybe tinged Red. Maybe goggles instead of a mask.

    This is how Huntress' costume turned out.

    This is how Green Arrow turned out
    [​IMG]

    And this is how Deathstroke looks in Arrow
    [​IMG]

    With Roy I guess it would depend on his part in the show, but if he turns out to be Ollie's Weapons expert then I could see the show giving him armor and goggles and some uniform that looks more like a costume. With knee pads, gloves, stuff tinged in Red.
    Something like this maybe
