Colton Haynes as Roy or Red Arrow or Arsenal, which ever name you prefer will be taking on a bigger role when Arrow returns January 21st on The CW, in episode 10, 11 and 12 of the 3rd season.
This news comes after the mid-season finale of Arrow, as for those who saw know why Roy’s will have to take center stage as Arsenal in Starling City. Entertainment Weekly had the scoop on this new development for the series, that came from executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
Is Oliver really dead on Arrow?! — Janet
You know I can’t answer that. But I can tell you that it sounds like Roy will be stepping up in the wake of Oliver’s absence. “One of the things I was very straight with Colton [Haynes] about is I don’t think we serviced his character quite as much as we would have liked in the first half of the season,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. “I’ll say the stuff that he’s got in episodes 10, 11, and 12, it’s pretty dang gangbusters.There’s one scene in episode 11 between him and John Barrowman that I think is some of his finest work on the show.”
