The upcoming and most-awaited finale of Arrow’s fifth season will see the arrival of Manu Bennett in his part as the notorious villain, Deathstroke. And the news has been confirmed!
As announced by various reliable sources , a progression of tweets from some individuals from the cast of Arrow have uncovered and confirmed the arrival of the series veteran Manu Bennett, (Deathstroke) to the cast for the fifth season finale, titled “Lian Yu.”
For the fans all over, even the title of the finale is bothersome, as “Lian Yu” is the name of the very island where it all began. It is the very place that filled in as the main reason for Oliver Queen’s move into the vigilante we see today in the show.
Arrow star Stephen Amell who plays the titular character Oliver Queen,was the first one to freely and openly declare Deathstroke’s arrival, posting a picture on Twitter of the notable and creepy two-colored protective helmet, all the while inviting back Bennett by his name. He tweeted, “Desperate times call for desperate measures. Welcome back @mannubennett.”
A little while after, official producer Marc Guggenheim tweeted a picture of the script, uncovering the title of the last scene and furthermore particularly specifying Bennett in the post. Gugganheim took after this tweet with another, saying Bennett’s arrival ” is only the first of a few exciting announcements” ahead. So, yes, you heard it right, there is definitely more surprises to come!! Brace yourselves!
These comes after the news a month ago that Black Canary on-screen character Katie Cassidy will repeat her part as Earth-2 doppelganger Black Siren as the series progresses. However it is still unknown in what capacity will Deathstroke be returning , and how he is going to fit into the finale of the current season.
