Manu Bennett Unhappy With Deathstroke’s Departure from Arrow


Manu Bennett who played Slade Wilson/Deathstroke on Arrow, has recently made comments on his character’s departure from the television series in a interview with The, where he said he was disappointed how his character was handled, how he was departed from season 3 and the likelihood of him not returning to the series.

I think Deathstroke had a lot of possibilities with Arrow but, I think they took it in the wrong direction,” Bennett told’s Daniel Cribb a head of his appearances at Supanova.

“I think they should have honoured the Marv Wolfman character who was literally unstoppable. I read the DC comic books and thought Deathstroke was so bad arse because they make it that nobody can stop him. He’s not even super-powered, he is just a mercenary.

“It took the Justice League to defeat him; it took an army to take him on. In Arrow, it took a while for Oliver [Queen/Arrow] to prove his point, but [season three] was just a beating of Slade, adding insult to injury.”
