During an interview at San Diego Comic-Con Echo Kellum expressed it was only a matter of time before his character will dawn the Mr. Terrific garb. After a warm embrace by fans in the fourth season of Arrow, Echo got the bump to series regular next season.
“I can definitely say you’ll see it this season, 100%. You won’t have to wait too long,”
“It’s something that’s definitely a part of Curtis,” he teased. Right now he’s doing “a lot of working out, hitting the gym, there’s a lot of layers to Curtis. When he’s in the Mr. Terrific persona, he’s definitely different, It’s really cool to dive into that aspect of him, and play him a little different, more confident and sure of himself. Really going for it.”
Kellum continues to discuss his joy in having his character develop last season and as an actor being more comfortable and getting to understand the world of Arrow. Something to point out too is this quote does also seem to suggest that “Mr. Terrific” will in fact be his alter-ego name. Another funny tidbit is that he has already worn a jacket in season four that says “Fairplay” on it.
Arrow season five premieres on The CW Wednesday, October 5th 2016.
