“Curtis [Mr. Terrific] is someone we started talking about [in the writers room] at the end of last year, out of a desire to fill in some gaps in terms of the cast and storytelling,” Guggenheim explained, adding that the character “fills the same role Brandon [Routh] filled last year” with a few pointed differences.
“Echo has quickly become an MVP of the cast,” he shared. “I think a lot of people will compare him favorably to the addition of Emily [Bett Rickards] in Season 1. He has this wonderful energy.”
On the show, Kellum will start out as Curtis Holt, a technological savant and inventor at Palmer Technologies under Felicity Smoak’s supervision. In the comics, Mr. Terrific’s secret identity is Michael Holt, an extremely intelligent, Olympic-level athlete. Mr. Terrific is also member of the Justice Society of America, who joined after the death of his wife and unborn child, though it seems the show will craft a new origin to go with the new name.
