Now that his mirakuru problem has been taken care of, Roy can get back to the serious business of fighting crime. He of course needs a cool hero name — hence Arsenal, one of several names Roy is known by in the comic universe — and a mask and costume to go with it.
Amusingly, the costume bears a striking resemblance to the red hoodie Roy wore throughout Season 2. Some things never change.
When talking to Zap2it recently, Haynes commented on the evolution into Arsenal: “He’s such a bad-a** character,” the actor says of the hero persona. “Arsenal is his true calling, and he’s got a bad-a** techniques that he learns along the way.”
The first TV glimpse of Arsenal will come in the Season 3 premiere, airing Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
