Arrow's pulling the wool from over our eyes. In two weeks we'll see the real Deathstroke, aka Slade Wilson. The character's made multiple appearances as a dominating force on the island. This time we'll finally see his face, which will belong to Manu Bennett. Most of us know Bennett as the gladiator Crixus from Starz's Spartacus. It'll be interesting to see him fully clothed for once.
For Arrow, Bennett steps into modern times for the episode "Betrayal." The CW's released a few photos that feature Wilson interrogating Oliver. With a character of this magnitude, you need an imposing actor. Bennett fits the bill and is expected to appear in multiple episodes.
According to EW, Oliver and Wilson "form an uneasy alliance on the island of Lian Yu." In this week's "Trust but Verify", it was revealed that Oliver's archer friend is in cahoots with the bad guys. But there has to be more to the story.
Bennett makes his Arrow debut Feb. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
