It looks like the Waverider could be adding a new member to the crew. Based on a recent Instagram post by Tala Ashe, Colton Haynes’ Roy Harper may be joining the cast of Legends of Tomorrow for its upcoming fifth season.
Ashe, who plays Zari on The CW series, posted an image of Haynes alongside co-stars Nick Zano and Jes Macallan with a caption that reads “Just hanging with our newest legend”. This in itself seems like confirmation that Roy Harper will be joining the show in some capacity. Additionally, it seems the cast was also teasing the casting during a panel at DragonCon yesterday.
Roy first appeared on Arrow as a street-savvy young man from the Glades. He would later become romantically involved with Oliver Queen’s sister, Thea. During Season 2, Roy was injected with Mirakuru, a Japanese super-soldier serum used during World War II. Once he was cured, he would join Team Arrow under the Arsenal codename.
