One of Arrow‘s fan-favorite villains returned this season. While many fans want to see him more on the show, the show’s executive producer Marc Guggenheim in an interview with Discussing Film said:
“These are DC’s characters, we’re just renting them ya know, so we use the characters that they tell us we can use when we can use them, and we work around whatever limitations that places us,”
He further explained:
“For a time they were saying ‘you can’t use Deathstroke’, and that changed and we were able to have Slade Wilson back on the show, and now we’re back to ‘you can’t use him’. They’re working on the feature film version, it really is sort of now that you’ve got obviously Slade, spoiler alert, Deathstroke appears at the end of the Justice League movie.”
Joe Manganiello was seen playing the role of Deathstroke in the DCEU and made his big screen debut with this year’s Justice League. It’s sad to hear that Slade Wilson will not be returning to Arrow for a while now but its also exciting to know that the Deathstroke film is in progress.
