Will Manu Bennett return as Deathstroke in Arrow Season 3?

The Man Under the Hood

Manu Bennett (Spartacus Series, The Hobbit Trilogy) as Deathstroke is one of the best things about the second season of CW’s Arrow. If you loved Bennett in in the show, then it was a sad moment when Arrow was finally able to defeat him, sending him into confinement. Can we expect to see the return of Deathstroke in Season 3 of Arrow? The New Zealand actor recently made an appearance at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, and had some things to say about the Arrow villain.

“Realistically, when we talk about storyline, 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.”

Nothing is certain yet, but the Arrow producers do want Deathstroke to return.

“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.”

Bennett then talks about what would happen if he and Matt Nable, who plays Ra’s al Ghul, would face each other.

“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.”

What do you guys think of Bennett returning as Deathstroke?
