Deadshot won’t be returning for next season’s Arrow


DC Comics’ Deadshot will be making his big screen debut when Suicide Squad comes to theaters. But before that, he can be seen in episodes of Arrow on The CW. He was recently seen in the episode, “Suicidal Tendencies”, which explored his past as a violent family man. Will fans get to see Michael Rowe as the expert marksman in the next season?

Marc Guggenheim, the executive producer of Arrow, was asked whether Deadshot would be a regular in the next season. His answer:

First, thanks for the kind words.  I agree with you, our casting people — in Los Angeles and Vancouver — are the best.

Unfortunately, Deadshot is off the table for the nonce.

In his last appearance, he had a heroic death. He told Cupid, Diggle and his wife to escape before the building exploded while he stayed behind to cover them. Is he truly dead? Who knows, but it seems like we won’t be seeing him anytime soon.

Are you sad by this news?
