Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at Colton Haynes decked out in his new outfit as Arsenal for the upcoming third season of Arrow. Sporting a similar look to the titular Arrow, Arsenal is now ready for action on the front-lines in the quest to save Starling City!
After a rough go of things last season, Roy seems ready to take on a much more meaningful role as a member of team Arrow. Season 2 saw him battered and bruised before being injected with Mirakuru, which in turn made him a violent psychopath, only to then be cured in time to aid in the final fight against Deathstroke and his army (and there was training sprinkled throughout).
The look of the outfit is supposed to be a more sleek and militarized version of Oliver Queen’s suit but it comes off a tad too goth for my tastes. The criss-cross laces and tight black leather just doesn’t scream vigilante to me, more like dominatrix, but what do I know.
Hopefully the suit will grow on me or the show will provide a more complete look at the outfit. No matter what your preference, let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to check back in to OTL News for all things DC and Arrow!
