ARROW ‘Blind Spot’ Promo Shows Deathstroke In Action And In Costume


deathstroke bannerThe mid-season premiere of Arrow just wrapped up, and the preview for next week’s episode shows off something pretty spectacular. The mid-season finale revealed that Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) was now in the present and in Starling City supporting the villainous actions of Brother Blood, but the promo for next week show’s us that he’s going to be seeing a little action in costume as Deathstroke. This is something fans have been waiting for and the show has been building toward, and it looks like the time has finally come for it to be fully realized. The shot in the trailer is super quick but you can take a look at a screenshot below the trailer. It looks like the costume designers borrowed a page from Arkham Origins for this one. The hockey mask looks a little odd in the still, but we’ll have to see how things look when it’s actually in motion on the screen. What do you think about our first look at the Slade version of Deathstroke?

Arrow 2×11 “Blind Spot” – Oliver (Stephen Amell) is conflicted after Laurel (Katie Cassidy) reaches out to the Arrow asking him to investigate Sebastian Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro). Oliver is unsure whether to believe her accusations against the man he has publically supported for mayor, but decides to trust Laurel. However, when the pair gets too close to the truth, Sebastian exposes Laurel’s drug addiction and has her arrested. Meanwhile, Roy (Colton Haynes) reveals his new super-strength to Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) who wants to test out his abilities. Unfortunately, Roy isn’t able to contain his rage once unleashed and almost kills a man. Back on the island, Oliver is surprised when Sarah (guest star Caity Lotz) reveals a secret about Laurel. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Beth Schwartz
