Emily Bett Rickards Addresses Possibility Of Felicity Suiting Up On ‘Arrow’

Arrow Felicity Smoak Hero CostumeIn the penultimate episode of Legends of Tomorrow‘s second season, fans saw Arrow‘s Emily Bett Rickards make a cameo as an alternate version of Felicity Smoak – a version of the character who suited up in full costume.

While Felicity has never suited up on Arrow, there’s always been a lingering question about whether or not that could happen, and Rickards suiting up on Legends added a little more fuel to the fire.

At a Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in London over the past weekend, Rickards took part in an Arrow panel and was asked about the possibility of Felicity suiting up on Arrow. Rickards’ response echoes a sentiment Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim has shared in the past: No Felicity in costume.

“I will always stand by the fact that I don’t think Felicity should be a superhero. She’s already a hero in her own sense and I like who she is and who she plays. And I do stand by that,” Rickards said.

Given what happened in “Doomworld” on Legends, there’s little chance we’ll be seeing superhero Felicity again anytime soon and especially not on Arrow it sounds like.

“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy). Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”.

Arrow Season 6 will begin sometime in October in its new time slot: Thursday nights at 9/8c on The CW.

10 Movie & TV Villains Who Actually Beat The Heroes

A few weeks ago, the sci-fi horror film Life hit theaters. The tale of an unstoppable alien stalking a group of heroic astronauts on the International Space Station had the right amount of terror, intrigue and characters. We here at Heroic Hollywood liked it. One thing about the movie that was awesome was its ending. It’s been a few weeks, so most of you all probably know, but the alien ends up being the victor, killing the crew and assumingly conquers planet Earth. Life continues the fun trend of when the villains in the movie win.

This makes you think… what about other times where the villain actually wins? In the world of heroes who constantly face insurmountable odds and almost always end up being the victor (after all, who wants it for the good guy to not be triumphant?), there have been a few times many films based on comic book properties where the villain is actually the victor, even when they lose.

Here are a few examples of when our heroes are actually bested by the bad guys, even if the heroes technically win the day. Click Next to take a look….
