Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson Upped to Regular on CW’s Arrow
Coming on the heels of CW setting Colton Hayne’s Roy Harper and Emily Bett Rickards’ Felicity Smoak as series regulars, the network has just announced that Manu Bennett, who has been portraying Slade Wilson, will also be upped to a series regular for the recently announced second season. As it stands now, the character serves as an ally to Stephen Ammell’s Green Arrow, appearing in flashbacks to their time spent on the island together.
So far, the show’s producers have been rather vague as to weather the Bennett will transition into Wilson’s comic counterpart Deathstroke, which has seen several iterations in the series’ freshman season. Bennett is currently finishing work on the third and final season of Spartacus for Starz, where he plays Crixus.
You can catch Arrow on CW every Wednesday night. Stephen Ammell, Colton Haynes, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey and John Barrowman star in the hit series centered on the DC Comic hero Green Arrow.
