‘Arrow’ Set Photos Reveal Present-Day Return Of Colton Haynes’ Arsenal

Roy Harper Colton Haynes Arrow Season 7 Premiere Arsenal

Arsenal (Colton Haynes) makes his return in new set photos from The CW’s Arrow.

Arrow is finally coming to a close next season, after nearly a decade on The CW. As for now, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning have all avoided cancelation, so this doesn’t mean the end of The CW’s Arrowverse. In fact, quite the opposite, because Ruby Rose is set to headline a new Batwoman series in the near future.

Thanks to set photos from Canadagraph‘s Twitter, fans can get a peek at an upcoming episode of the series that will see the return of Colton Haynes as Arsenal, in modern day instead of flashforwards that the seventh season of Arrow has used to bring the actor back to the series.

Check out the image in the post below to get a glimpse at Colton Haynes dressed in the Arsenal costume and be sure to check out the full post for even more awesome set photos.

Fans can also get an up-close look at the actor in his iconic mask and outfit thanks to a social media post from one of the show’s stars. To get an even better look at Colton Haynes’ present-day return as Arsenal, check out an Instagram post from David Ramsey below.


This holiday season, fans will be able to see Arrow take part in another exciting Arrowverse crossover before the series ends. Crisis on Infinite Earths will bring a reality-shattering event to The CW, which was teased at the end of last year’s Arrowverse crossover event titled Elseworlds. 

DC Universe, a new streaming service from DC, is also bringing very unique DC-based series to fans such as Titans, Doom Patrol, and the third season of Young Justice, subtitled Outsiders. Upcoming DC Universe series also include Swamp Thing, Stargirl, Harley Quinn, and Metropolis.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen 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.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
