‘Arrow’ Actors Share Their Favorite Superheroes


Atlanta hosted this years Heroes & Villains Fan Fest event over this past weekend, where the stars of Arrow gathered for the opening panel on Saturday.

Arrow stars Willa Holland (Thea/Speedy), David Damsey (Diggle/Spartan), Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance/Black Canary), Paul Blackthorne (Quentin Lance), and Charlotte Ross (Donna Smoak) were all in attendance.

During the panel, the stars in attendance were all asked what their favorite superheroes were, to which some of them gave very surprising answers. Some of the less surprising picks were Willa Holland with Batman and Katie Cassidy choosing Catwoman, but some of the other stars had some more unexpected answers.

After that, David Ramsey revealed that his favorite superhero was actually Marvel’s answer to Batman, Moon Knight. Paul Blackthorne admitted his favorite superhero wasn’t a hero at all, but the Joker. Is there something you’d like to tell us, Paul?

Lastly, Charlotte Ross went with… Jane Goodall, the animal rights activist. As admirable of an answer as that was, it appears Ross got confused when it came to the definition of “superhero” – hero, yes, but I don’t think Goodall possesses any sort of superhuman and/or metahuman abilities. Oh well.

Anyway, are you surprised by some of the actors’ answers? Make sure to let us know what you think, down below in the comments.

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

    Batman doesn’t possess any Superhuman abilities yet he’s still considered a superhero… Also: Catwoman, Joker, Hawkeye, The Whole Arrow show has people without superpowers yet they’re all superheroes,Nighthawk, Mockingbird, Elektra etc.
    Just because she chose a real person does not mean they are not a superhero to them
