Don’t feel that the Arrowverse is popular enough and you’d like to see a ‘Deathstroke‘ spinoff? According to actor Manu Bennett there is something that can be done to make that happen! While I wouldn’t hold my breath for it as they already have ‘Arrow‘, ‘The Flash’, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, ‘Supergirl’, and soon ‘Black Lightning’ in the works – stranger things have been known to happen!
Bennett’s take on Slade Wilson, or Deathstroke, has been a fan-favorite since he first appeared on the small screen. He recently returned to ‘Arrow’ in the fifth season finale though we don’t really know his fate from a particular island he was on blowing up. It isn’t like Slade has the healing factor of his higher grossing Marvel ripoff Wade Wilson to survive an explosion of that magnitude, so we’ll see how they play that off down the line.
Prior to that scene though we had learned that Slade was in control of his faculties again and ready for his own brand of hero work. So how could this turn into a new show?

While it isn’t unheard of for studios to listen to fans on ideas like this, they’re already juggling quite a few superhero shows and throwing another into the mix might be a bit of a stretch for now. Still, if you’d like to see it happen you now know one way to try and push for getting a #deathstrokeoriginalseries!
Would you happily watch a ‘Deathstroke’ series? Do you think he’d be close to our current heroes, in another city, or traveling the world? Share your thoughts below!
