Whether or not you are enjoying Arrow, the latest CW television series based on the DC comics character Green Arrow, you can probably agree that it has been pretty cool to see certain DC comics characters a make cameo appearances on the series. So far we've seen characters like Deadshot and more recently, the Huntress and now, we can add yet another character to the list. According to Entertainment Weekly, actor Manu Bennett (Spartacus) will be portraying Slade Wilson on the series and that he has been signed on to appear in "multiple episodes of the show." Perhaps the character will have a recurring roll? We certainly hope so. Although Slade has been confirmed, according to EW, "sourced won't comment" on whether fans will see "Wilson become Deathstroke."
It would be awfully strange if the show's creators decided to make Deathstroke and Slade Wilson two different characters, wouldn't it? Which is why we think it might be likely that we'll be seeing Slade become Deathstroke, particularly since this wouldn't be Deathstroke's first appearance on the television series. If you've been keeping up with the show you might recall that a torn Deathstroke mask was first seen in the initial previews for the television show, and more recently we saw him appear on the series fully masked, beating up a captured Oliver Queen while the 'Emerald Archer' was still marooned on the island.
What do you think of the news that an actor has been cast as 'Slade Wilson'? Is this a character you want to see get a recurring roll on the current CW drama? What do you think their interaction will be like?
