Arrow's Willa Holland did not like the way Warner Bros. decided to kill the show's Suicide Squad plans because of the upcoming DC movie!
Willa Holland's Thea Queen, a.k.a. Speedy, was left in a bit of an odd place at the end of Arrow Season 4. The season finale saw her leave Team Arrow and go off in search of her true self. Arrow's Season 4 finale went down so badly that its subreddit was changed to Netflix's Daredevil. How embarrassing. Stephen Amell recently responded to the fans' outrage at the Season 4 finale. However, poor finales aside, Willa Holland has been talking about how she's not best pleased with the way Warner Bros. has been treating The CW's show. If you've been watching the show for a while, you'll remember that in Season 2 Amanda Waller was putting together her Task Force X. However, they haven't been seen since that season. Holland was at London's MCM Comic Con recently, where she voiced her opinion on the matter.
While attending MCM London Comic Con, the Arrow star revealed her true feelings (via the Mirror). She doesn't like how certain characters have been dropped from Arrow due to the upcoming movies, namely Suicide Squad and Justice League: Parts One and Two. "When DC found out they were going to be doing their own movie, we had to axe all of the characters before we even got to show them," revealed Holland. "It was annoying at first and then when Stephen found out there was going to be a Justice League movie it only seemed, rightly so, he would be playing Green Arrow on it as well as Grant playing the Flash. It just seemed like the right normal answer." Well, we all know now that Grant Gustin won't be The Flash in the DC movies, that honor went to Ezra Miller. We also doubt that Warner Bros. will cast Stephen Amell as Green Arrow in their films.
Holland then mentioned how DC could learn a lot from Marvel. "Marvel does it in their own weird way - the mash between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and the movies and stuff. So it's a little upsetting because you know it is possible and it can be done and how good it would be if it was done." Eventually, Holland admitted that there was not much they could do, because ultimately DC are the ones paying the bills. "Once they said no, you can't really fight against them for it, because they are the people that gave us a job in the first place. You just have to sit there on your hands, like okay, I get it!" It's a bit of difficult situation to be in, but DC and Warner Bros. must know what they are doing. Did you want to see more of the Suicide Squad on Arrow?
