TV Guide is reporting the cast of Arrow is on target to get even hotter.

Former Teen Wolf pupcake Colton Haynes is set to start appearing on the hit CW series as Roy Harper.

In the multiverse of DC Comics, Roy Harper has been known by several codenames, including Green Arrow’s young sidekick Speedy, Teen Titans member Arsenal, and even the Justice League’s very own drug addict Red Arrow.

"We were big fans of Colton from Teen Wolf and we are thrilled he's joining Arrow," executive producer Greg Berlanti told TV Guide.

At this time, little is known about how much Haynes’ Harper will stay true to his comic book roots, but The CW has described him as “a handsome, street-savvy, teenager from ‘the Glades,’ the harsh, poverty-stricken portion of Starling City.”

Additional info from the studio claims Harper will not only be a love interest for Thea Queen (Willa Holland) who is currently nicknamed “Speedy” on the series, but the character is also destined to become “an important player in the larger world of Arrow.”

We admit it, we’re totally psyched more Haynes is headed our way. After all, it was only two short months ago we thought we'd be going through Colton withdrawal next year after we learned the snacky pupcake was leaving MTV’s Teen Wolf.

However, as excited as we are, we have one small request for the CW. Is it too much to ask that Haynes be shirtless in this new role as often as he was in his last one?

What do you think of this casting news? Will you be tuning in to watch Colton Haynes get his superhero on?
