Could Willa Holland Be Prepping For A Mask On Arrow?


Could Thea Queen officially join Team Arrow before this season is over?

Arrow actress Willa Holland, who plays Thea on Arrow, raised that question earlier today with a cryptic image on her Instagram account. In her image, Holland poses with plaster covering her entire face. While not a sure sign, it certainly suggests that Arrow’s production team was creating a mold of Holland’s face. It could be used for a number of different reasons, but the most compelling is that the mold would help size-up a mask for Holland to wear as Thea Queen (that head mold of Grant Gustin in the background seems like more than coincidence).

In Arrow, Thea is currently training with Oliver Queen to become a better fighter and warrior. If that doesn’t groom her character for an upgrade to super hero status, there’s also the fact that Thea’s nickname on the show is Speedy. In the Green Arrow comics, Speedy was Green Arrow’s first sidekick. While Roy Harper traditionally holds that mantle before graduating to Arsenal in other media, he skipped straight to the Arsenal persona on Arrow. So with the Speedy role still open, it seems like Thea could suit up just in time for Ra’s al Ghul’s incoming assault on Starling City.
