Manu Bennett Discusses Deathstroke’s Possible Return. Manu Bennett has received praise from fans for portraying the villainous Slade Wilson AKA Deathstroke on The CW’s Arrow. Ever since his imprisonment last season, the question on everyone’s minds is if Deathstroke will ever return.
Luckily Manu Bennett answered that question and more during an appearance at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con. Speaking with ComicBook.com, Manu told the website that we haven’t seen the last of Slade Wilson. “Realistically, when we talk about storyline, they threw me into a really interesting place, Purgatory. And you know, I’m left at the end, shaking the bars, going, ‘I keep my promises, kid.’ And I think I meant it. So I don’t think that they are just going to let that voice subside into the vast abyss.”
His answer still unclear, Bennett said that Deathstroke will make a comeback sometime in the future. “They said at the end of the season last year, they said, ‘Look, we want you back. We want you back.’ But there’s been no indication yet of how they’ll go about that at any point in time, right now.”
It’s good to hear that Deathstroke will be returning to the series. He also heard news that his Aussie pal Matt Nable nabbed the role of Ra’s al Ghul for the upcoming season. As to what he hopes the mercenary/overlord will do when he returns, Manu had this in mind:
I know that Matt Nable, who’s an Australian actor who I worked with on the Sons of Anarchy kind-of-biker series last year, maybe just the year before in Australia, just got cast as Ra’s Al Ghul. I mean this guy was playing the head of the biker gang that I was in. I was the tough guy in the biker gang, but he was like the head. And he’s got such an intensity to him. But I don’t know, man, if it ever comes down to him and me facing off in a scene, “whew,” I mean Stephen Amell is really going to have to bring it to the fire at that stage. It’s going to be two Aussies, it’s going to be an Aussie and New Zealander just sitting there and going “whew.” I look forward to that. Matt Nable is a great actor.
