Manu Bennett has taken to the internet to tease the reprisal of his role as Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke in the upcoming sixth season of the hit DC Comics series Arrow.
When the series returns, we’ll pick up in the aftermath of Prometheus’ destruction of Lian Yu, but we already know Deathstroke has survived the hundreds of explosions across the Island as the series is set to feature the character heavily in the first half of the sixth season including a two-parter with Deathstroke that will include flashbacks to help explain what’s happened to Slade between the death of Shado and making amends with Oliver at the end of the fifth season.
In the new behind the scenes photo, Bennett reveals the new depowered Slade will be taking a bit of a beating in the coming episodes. You can check it out below.
The series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen (Green Arrow), Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance (Black Siren), David Ramsey as John Diggle (Spartan), Willa Holland as Thea Queen (Speedy), Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak (Overwatch), Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt (Mr. Terrific), Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez (Wild Dog), Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake (Black Canary), and Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance. Here’s the official synopsis:
“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy). Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”
Arrow Season 6 premieres October 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
10 Heroes We Want To See In ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Season 3
**This article contains spoilers for the Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 finale.**
The Season 2 Finale for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (check out my review if you haven’t already) certainly left things off on an interesting note. But now’s the time to look to the future. It’s time to look ahead to Season 3.
Legends showrunner Phil Klemmer recently teased new characters appearing in Season 3. That’s what’s great about this type of show is the ability to regularly swap team members in and out. It helps keep the show fresh. As Klemmer puts it, in this show, “the only thing that has to remain is the Waverider.” The DC universe is packed with awesome characters that would be perfect for an appearance in Legends and this show provides the unique opportunity to introduce DC superheroes and villains from any place and any time. Whether it be the past, as was the case with recurring characters like Jonah Hex or the Justice Society of America, or the future, as we saw with Connor Hawke in Season 1, this show can make it work. So, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the characters that could possibly appear on Legends of Tomorrow Season 3.
First, though, a couple of disclaimers. Some of these characters are more likely to actually appear on the show than others, but all of them could work with a little creative writing. Some of these people might have appeared in the Arrowverse before, but not on Legends of Tomorrow (for the most part). Some might make more sense in a one-off appearance while some could work as potential new season-long team members. Finally, I didn’t include any of the characters that are already appearing in the DCEU films.
So, without further adieu, here are the 10 heroes we want to see in Legends of Tomorrow Season 3. Hit the next button below to begin!
