While it is fair to say that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is dominating on the big screen, it seems that the DCTV universe is having a lot of success on the small screen, with the likes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl all coming together in impressive crossover episodes, as well as enjoying success individually.
Arrow was the first series to kick off the DCTV universe and we have seen the characters grow and progress along the way, including actress Willa Holland in the role of Thea Queen. There have been plenty of rumours along the way, suggesting that Willa will see Thea being killed off in Arrow, and now Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim has given his views on the subject.
Guggenheim was chatting to Entertainment Weekly, when he told them, "There’s two lines in the sand that I’ve drawn for Arrow for myself. I can’t speak for Greg [Berlanti] or for Wendy [Mericle], but for as long as I’m involved with the show, the two things I never want to do is kill off Thea [Willa Holland] and put Felicity in a mask and a costume."
He added, "Those, to me, are two lines that I just think are a bridge too far. Thea, because we’ve taken so many family members away from Oliver, and Felicity because when you put a character like that in a costume, I think it diminishes who that character is and it makes the idea of superheroics seem silly."
So there you have it, we are not going to see Willa Holland saying goodbye to Thea Queen in Arrow any time soon.
