One of the fan favorite villains on Arrow is Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke, who was heavily present in the first two seasons as he went from Oliver Queen’s ally on the island to becoming the Green Arrow’s nemesis. While Manu Bennett, who portrayed the iconic villain, hasn’t been on the show since his guest appearance in Season 3, Slade had popped up twice – while masked – in hallucinations and dream worlds.
Stephen Amell shared on social media today a very cryptic post with a photo of Slade’s first Deathstroke mask on the island with the caption “Hello old friend”. While Oliver has been in Russia in the flashbacks this season, the producers have confirmed that eventually Oliver will get back to the island somehow as the show is getting ready to finish off the flashbacks of how Oliver became the weapon he is today. Should Slade somehow be showing up in the flashbacks on the island, it would most likely be as a hallucination.

10 Reasons To Be Optimistic About ‘Wonder Woman’
There’s a fair amount riding on Wonder Woman, DC’s summer blockbuster, for more reasons than just being the first major female superhero movie made. It follows up two divisive entries in the universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. While successful, the performances of both at the box office and with critics merited re-evaluation by the filmmakers in the form of corporate restructuring and written mea culpas.
Despite these stumbles, there’s many reasons to be optimistic about Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot was well-received as Diana Prince in Batman v Superman, it’s set in the past, focusing on one character after two ensemble pictures, and both Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns add directorial and comic credibility, respectively. Plus, it’s no small thing that DC Films will beat Marvel Studios to the first female superhero movie, despite the latter having made over a dozen movies to former’s four. It’s important milestone for representation in pop culture.
