Only five hours remain in Arrow Season 5, let alone in Oliver’s odyssey to Lian Yu, and the end is finally nigh. See for yourself in a glorious new sizzle reel, featuring Deathstroke’s return, Canary and al Ghul showdowns and more!
Arrow fans were elated to learn that Season 2 star Manu Bennett would finally reprise his role as Deathstroke for the Season 5 finale, but were celebrations premature? Either Bennett is having fun trolling fans, or something seriously strange is afoot.
Far and away, Arrow’s must curious case has been the absence of Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke; often considered the series’ greatest villain. Both Bennett and his masked alter-ego have appeared separately since Season 2, but will finally be reunited in Season 5, according to Stephen Amell.
Whether or not Arrow abandons its flashback device altogether after Season 5, the upcoming episodes will inevitably return Oliver Queen to the bearded castaway we first saw in the 2012 pilot. To wit, star Stephen Amell is now teasing the return of a familiar foe, albeit with a deathly familiar stroke.
Today, the first trailer for the upcoming Death Race 2050 barreled onto the Internet like a methed-up speed demon plowing through a crowd of toddlers. But before we can start to sort through the smoking wreckage, a brief history lesson.
More and more, TV and film actors of the DC universe have been able to appreciate one another’s shared roles. We’ve seen one Flash digging another’s costume, and now Arrow star Manu Bennett weighs in on Joe Manganiello taking the role of Deathstroke to the big screen for Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie.
Seasons 3 and 4 of Arrow have conspicuously scuttled off any and all characters related to DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad, to the point several past figures have been referred to as “off the table.” Now, Season 4 might surprisingly return one of the series’ biggest antagonists, however briefly.
It’s been some time since the first season of MTV’s long-brewing Shannara Chronicles series wrapped up its first fantastical season, and given the hefty production involved, renewal took time. Still, the highly-acclaimed fantasy series has officially confirmed its Season 2 order, delving further into the Terry Brooks world.
We’ve known for some time Legends of Tomorrow would travel to “Star City 2046” to meet a future iteration of Arrow’s Oliver Queen, as well as Connor Hawke, both of which made their photo debut earlier today. Now that the first trailer has arrived however, it seems Deathstroke has been confirmed for a return after all - with a twist.
Arrow fans have noticed more steadily that any and all Suicide Squad characters shared with the upcoming film have been “taken off the table” through various means, seemingly for good. Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke still draws breath, but may now be “tied up in another DC project” and equally unable to return, according to producer Marc Guggenheim.
