Monday in the park with… Deathstroke?
The Arrow Season 2 baddie will make a return for the show’s 100th episode, airing later this year as part of a four-way crossover event with the three other CW superhero series: The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.
As seen in the following photo shared by star Stephen Amell on Monday during production on the milestone hour, the foe is back… but who’s under the mask? As recently as this weekend, Manu Bennett — who originally played the role of Slade Wilson/Deathstroke — was tweeting from New Zealand, so perhaps another actor is filling the suit?
A table-read photo tweeted out by showrunner Marc Guggenheim last week revealed that Jamey Sheridan will also be returning as Oliver’s father Robert in the episode. “No Flashpoint, no flashbacks,” the EP noted, leaving open the possibility of time travel or a visit to another Earth. Plus, actress Katie Cassidy hinted at a potential Laurel appearance on Facebook.
Arrow returns Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8/7c on The CW, where it now leads into the freshman drama Frequency.
