Deathstroke is coming to the CW Seed (the CW’s digital platform where they have aired various animated series in Vixen, Ray, and Constantine) in an all-new animated series. The news was announced at the upfront which also unveiled the new Batwoman trailer. Here’s the official synopsis:
Ten years ago, Slade Wilson—aka the super-assassin called Deathstroke—made a tragic mistake and his wife and son paid a terrible price. Now, a decade later, Wilson’s family is threatened once again by the murderous Jackal and the terrorists of H.IV.E. Can Deathstroke atone for the sins of the past—or will his family pay the ultimate price?
Here’s the official image as well the CW tweeted out:
I guess too much Deathstroke isn’t a bad thing at all. With Titans about to unleash the character in their series played by Esai Morales, surprisingly we get possibly another version of the character about to show up on the CW.
Then again, Slade being on the CW isn’t a new thing, the character was played by Manu Bennett on Arrow. The question now has to be asked: will he reprise the role? Given this is taking place on the CW, it could be just that. And I am all for more Manu Bennett reprising his role as the character. Given he was abruptly taken off the role again (because Warner Bros. gonna Warner Bros. on their character embargoes). It be nice to see him in the role just one more time.
