This past season of Arrow ended with much of the original ‘Arrow’ team being disbanded. Season four ended on a dark and unknown note. Echo Kellum plays Curtis Holt on Arrow and his character has recently been moved up to a series regular.
In a recent interview, Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle, explained how Holt will be changing for season five and how his role will be different compared to that of Felicity.
“Essentially, if she’s software, he’s hardware. As he evolves into becoming Mr. Terrific in Season 5, one of the things we’re really exploring is differentiating them by having Curtis be more like Cisco on The Flash. We want him to be a bit more hands-on, a little more about building physical tech.”
Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), is a mechanical engineer for STAR labs and has become a key part of The Flash team. Valdes brings a sense of comedy and lightness to Flash, something that Arrow lacks at time. Mericle’s comments indicate that Curtis’ will be filling in that role for Arrow. This new direction with his character is likely to lead into him becoming his own superhero, Mr. Terrific.
