‘Arrow’: Emily Bett Rickards Addresses Possibility Of Felicity Suiting Up

In the penultimate episode of Legends of Tomorrow‘s second season, fans saw Arrow star Emily Bett Rickards makes a cameo as an alternate version of Felicity Smoak, a version of the character who suited up in full costume.

While Felicity has never suited up on Arrow, there’s always been a lingering question about whether or not that could happen, and Rickards suiting up on Legends added a little more fuel to the fire.

At a Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in London over the past weekend, Rickards took part in an Arrow panel and was asked about the possibility of Felicity suiting up on Arrow. Rickards’ response echoes a sentiment Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim has shared in the past: No Felicity in costume.

“I will always stand by the fact that I don’t think Felicity should be a superhero. She’s already a hero in her own sense and I like who she is and who she plays. And I do stand by that,” Rickards said.

Given what happened in “Doomworld” on Legends, there’s little chance we’ll be seeing superhero Felicity again anytime soon and especially not on Arrow it sounds like.

“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy). Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”.

Arrow Season 6 will begin sometime in October in its new time slot: Thursday nights at 9/8c on The CW.
