Would You Like To See A ‘Deathstroke’ TV Series On The CW?

"I think I'm stating the obvious when I say I killed your mother, and for that alone, you should have killed me. " -Slade Wilson-


After the recent return of fan-favorite character Slade Wilson/Deathstroke in the Arrow season 5 finale, actor Manu Bennett has taken to Twitter to put out there the idea of a solo TV show for the anti-hero.

Bennett even got the support of the character’s creator, Marv Wolfman.

Deathstroke was the main antagonist of season 2 and has had a rollercoaster relationship with Oliver Queen/Green Arrow; going from enemy to mentor to friend to enemy to…’it’s complicated”.

Personally, I always loved Bennett as Wilson, and think he was probably my favorite ‘Big Bad‘. Even if he doesn’t get his own show, I would love to see Deathstroke return to the Arrowverse in a much more regular role. A solo show for him could work if perhaps he became a ‘black ops’ member of Team Arrow, globe-trotting and handling the kind of dirty wet works the regular members could not. Or he could even join the Legends of Tomorrow!

  1. Would I like to see a Deathstroke TV show? Does a bear shit in the woods?

    It would be cool to see The Jackal in it, Though without Billy Wintergreen it won’t be as good as the comics.
