Actor Colton Haynes hints at DC heroes in Arrow Season 2

Dodger - Arrow - Colton Haynes

Clearly timed to coincide with our Arrow – Season 1 special this week, actor Colton Haynes spoke to MTV this week about the plans for his character Roy Harper in season 2 of Arrow.

Asked what was in store for his character in the second season, “Whether or not Roy is going to choose love over trying to become a hero”.

He adds: “I know that a few are coming. For the fanboys and girls out there, a few of the most important DC characters are going to be coming to ‘Arrow,'” said Haynes. “And quite possibly working in a team together. Possibly”.

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean a Justice League type of situation, but it could be hinting at more “Team Arrow” moments. Fans will know that Roy Harper is “Speedy”/”Arsenal” in the comics, Green Arrow’s sidekick and friend. In the first season, Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) sister Thea (Willa Holland) is frequently referred to as “Speedy”.

Arrow will return to the CW this fall, mostly likely in October. Check out the full clip below:
