Manu Bennett set to return as Deathstroke on Arrow
Arrow star Stephen Amell has taken to Twitter to reveal that Manu Bennett will return to the series as the lethal Deathstroke. In the context of the series, Slade Wilson has been imprisoned in the A.R.G.U.S. facility on Lian Yu since season two of the series and made a brief appearance in season 3. Since then the character has appeared in hallucinations and dreams but Bennett did not reprise the role for those instances.
Those comments seemingly line up with the reveal that Bennett will return, though it remains to be seen if he will stick around for longer than one episode or even reprise his role in the upcoming sixth season of the series.
Arrow won’t return to The CW until Wednesday, April 26 with an episode titled “Dangerous Liaisons” which is described as follows:
“Oliver, Team Arrow, ARGUS and the SCPD kick off a citywide manhunt for Adrian Chase (Josh Segurra). Helix tells Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) they have a way to find Chase but they will need something big, and illegal, from her in return. “
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, John Barrowman as Malcom Merlyn, with Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance. The series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter.
