Felicity Smoak Wont Be The Third Bird Of Prey In ARROW…Yet
Arrow is still chugging along and pleasing fans with it’s amazing stunt work, always improving acting and it’s eagerness to drop all kinds of DC references. That trend will continue in this week episode, Heir To The Demon, that will introduce Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Nyssa. Even if you look beyond this week, we get to look forward to the episode ‘Birds of Prey’.
Most comic fans know about Birds of Prey. The female superhero group that consists of (first lineup at least) of Barbara Gordon AKA Oracle, The Huntress and Black Canary. The Huntress and Black Canary have already been introduced in to the Arrow Universe, with Jessica Elise De Gouw already confirmed to return as Helena, and with Barbara Gordon nonexistent some fans were hoping that Felicity Smoak could fill the role of Oracle.
Unfortunately for fans this isn’t going to happen. At least not in the Birds Of Prey episode. Arrow’s Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim sat down for a round table where he touched on the matter. “She plays a role, but not in the way you’re hoping,” he teased. Once again that’s not to say she wont in the future with Guggenheim saying, “Hopefully we’ll get there–that occurred to us as well but we didn’t have an opportunity to do that in [Episode] 17.”
So it seems maybe Ms. Smoak could be getting a new name to better protect herself and her superheroine ways. Or they could just continue to hide her in the Arrow bunker. It will be interesting to see who they get to fill the third role for the team. Some have even suggested Nyssa might be doing it. Whatever the case may be, you can catch Arrow Wednesday nights at 9P.M. EST on The CW.
