The actor Manu Bennett who was Arrow Season 3 villain Slade ‘Deathstroke’ Wilson has been talking about the future of the character at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, reports ComicBook, and he’s saying he will return… at some point.
Bennett said: “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.
“But at this stage, I don’t know. 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.”
Perhaps Wilson will be brought back to go after Ra’s Al Ghul as he was in the comic storyline Son Of Batman?
Anyway, speaking of Ra’s, Bennett talked about that too: “I know that Matt Nable [who will play Ra’s], who’s an Australian actor who I worked with on the Sons of Anarchy kind-of-biker series [Bikie Boys] 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.”
Oliver Queen could have a tough time ahead if Ra’s and Deathsroke hit the streets of his city…
Arrow Season 3 starts on Wednesday, October 8
