According to The Hollywood Reporter Manu Bennett, joins Colton Haynes and Emily Bett Rickards, in getting promoted to series regular by the CW for the second season of Arrow. He plays Slade Wilson in the show and his role will be larger than ever in season two. He has so far been portrayed as an ally to Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen in flashback’s of his time on the island, it remains to be seen whether this means we will see him take on his villainous alter ego of Deathstroke. Maybe he will stay an ally of Oliver for a while?  His one time partner Billy Wintergreen is also fond of wearing the mask and last time we saw him he did get stabbed in the eye…….
