ARROW Ups Manu Bennett to Series Regular
March 20, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
ARROW has promoted another actor — a Warner Bros. rep confirms that Manu Bennett (Slade Wilson) will return for the upcoming second season as a series regular. The Hollywood Reporter was first to break the news.
Bennett has appeared in a handful of episodes in the show’s freshman run so far, and at this point, has only appeared in flashbacks to Oliver’s time on the island. Of course, there’s also the lingering question as to whether Bennett’s Slade Wilson will ultimately morph into the villain Deathstroke — who held quite the grudge against Oliver in the comics.
Are you excited to get more Manu Bennett in ARROW’s second year?
