Warning: This article contains spoilers for Arrow Season 7, Episode 13: “Star City Slayer.”
So the most recent episode of Arrow had us bid farewell to not one, but two staples of the series. While William is set to live with his grandparents in Central City, the show has now also, for the moment, lost Echo Kellum’s Curtis Holt/Mr. Terrific.
For some of the recent episodes of Arrow, Curtis has been butting heads with Diggle and Lyla on their approach. Last night’s episode brought that to the forefront with Curtis revealing to Diggle that he had been offered a position in Washington, D.C. While Diggle countered by offering Curtis the position of running A.R.G.U.S.’ entire scientific division, if just as a way to keep Curtis around, Curtis ultimately turned down the offer. Thus, the series bid farewell to another regular within the Arrow cast.
However, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Arrow star Echo Kellum explained his exit as a series regular, how he left the door open for Curtis to return, and how he approached Marc Guggenheim with the news of his looming exit.
“I approached Marc [Guggenheim]. We had a long conversation about family and fatherhood and all those things, and he totally got where I was coming from. You know, Warner Bros. and the network were so generous to be able to let me exit gracefully. What I will say, this isn’t the end of Curtis. I’ll definitely come back as much as they want me back, and visit and guest-star and whatnot. So, it’s not the end of him.”
Kellum went on to say that he enjoyed the story decision in which Curtis exited Team Arrow, as it goes back to his desire to help people, which he will do with his position in Washington, D.C. After last night’s episode premiered on the East Coast, Kellum took to Twitter to explain his exit to Arrow fans… while also warning those on the West Coast who had not yet seen the episode.
SPOILER ALERT WEST COAST!

Still, though, what do you think of Curtis’ exit from Arrow? Would you want to see him return, either in a future episode or maybe crossover event like the upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earths? Let us know your thoughts on Mr. Terrific’s exit from the Arrowverse in the comments below.
Arrow airs on Monday nights at 8 P.M. on the CW.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
