Recently actor Manu Bennett spoke to nerdy site ComicBook and talked about the possibility of him reprising his fan-loved role as Slade Wilson aka, Deathstroke. “Realistically, when we talk about story-line, 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.” Now, this isn’t a confirmation that the mercenary will make a future appearance down the line, but Manu strongly hints at the possibility of it happening. He then goes on to say, “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.” In other words it may happen, or it may not. But we sure hope to see ole’one-eye again.
Manu did also touch on the topic of the OTHER bad guy that is lined up to give Arrow and his friends some trouble. One of them being the likes of Ra’s Al Ghul, who will be played by actor Matt Nable. “I know that Matt Nable, who’s an Australian actor who I worked with on the Sons of Anarchy kind-of-biker series 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.” So Manu’s got nothing but love to give to our upcoming ‘Head of The Demon’.
