Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke Will Reportedly Appear In Green Arrow And The Canaries

Arrow might be finishing very soon, but that won’t be the end for this corner of the Arrowverse. A spinoff titled Green Arrow and the Canaries has already been announced, set to star Katherine McNamara’s Mia Smoak as well as Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy’s Black Canaries. It’s likely to inherit a lot of characters from its parent show, then, including, at least potentially, one of Arrow‘s biggest villains.

Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke hasn’t been seen since season 6, but We Got This Covered is hearing that Slade Wilson might be due for a comeback in the spinoff series. It’s currently unknown exactly what his role will be, but our sources – the same ones who told us about this spinoff back in March well before The CW announced it – have said that we should expect to see Deathstroke turn up in some capacity.

Green Arrow And The Canaries: 5 Reasons It Should Be In Present Time (& 5 Reasons It Should Be In The Future)

Arrow is currently in the middle of its eighth and final season as the Stephen Amell-led series has only a handful of episodes left before it wraps up. The series that created the Arrowverse may be ending, but a spin-off is currently in the works that would keep the Arrow side of Greg Berlanti’s franchise alive. The CW previously announced that a female team-up series featuring Oliver’s daughter Mia (Katherine McNamara) as well as the two Black Canaries, Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) and Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy) is in the works. A backdoor pilot is set to be included in the final season that will take place in the ninth episode.

Later on, it was revealed by executive producer Marc Guggenheim that the spin-off is appearing to be titled Green Arrow and the Canaries.

Roy Harper Returns As Arsenal In Arrow 8×06 Photos

The familiar faces just keep on returning. In previous episodes, we’ve seen the comebacks of Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell), Thea Queen (Willa Holland) and several more, and in the next installment of Arrow season 8, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) will put in an appearance for the first time in this final season of the show. What’s more, he’ll be suiting up in his Arsenal outfit once again.

The photos down below reveal that Roy has been living incognito, working as a mechanic and going by the name “Jason” – a nod to fellow red-themed superhero sidekick Jason Todd, perhaps. Diggle tracks him down, though, and apparently recruits him to help out on a mission. Meanwhile, Oliver and his grown-up kids will infiltrate a fight club, an investigation which looks to – unsurprisingly – turn violent.

There was some controversy when it was announced that Haynes wasn’t serving as a regular this season,

Arrow Puts Yet Another Spin On The Legacy Of Deathstroke

Reflecting back on what Arrow has accomplished over the years, it’s very difficult not speaking of Deathstroke when doing so. After all, Manu Bennett’s take on the world’s deadliest mercenary was among those first making the character a household name after decades of being known only to comic book readers and viewers of the Teen Titans animated series.

Strangely enough, Bennett has been altogether absent from Arrow‘s eighth and final season, most likely due to Slade Wilson currently being played by Esai Morales over on DC Universe’s Titans. Still, the Deathstroke persona itself has been permitted to be utilized on The CW – it’s just that other guys have been donning the iconic mask.

So far, we’ve seen Charlie Barnett taking up arms as John Diggle Jr. in the flash forward segments, so it was naturally assumed that he’d be the new Deathstroke

Oliver Returns To Russia In Arrow 8×05 Synopsis

When the producers behind Arrow said Oliver Queen would be replaying his greatest hits during the eighth and final season, they weren’t kidding around. So far, we’ve seen generous tribute paid to seasons 1 and 3, with more nods to the past undoubtedly out of the way.

That being said, it only makes sense that Ollie and the gang head back to Russia in a matter of weeks. After all, his history with the Bratva is crucial to his background, not to mention how season 5’s flashback segments were largely set in that particular country.

Having reiterated that, here’s what’s set to go down in “Prochnost”:

Don’T Let Your Past Define You – Upon learning the key to oppose The Monitor (guest star Lamonica Garrett), Oliver (Stephen Amell) and team return to Russia on a mission to gather the necessary materials. Diggle (David Ramsey) reunites with a figure from his past.

Arrow’s David Ramsey Is Open To Moving To Legends Of Tomorrow

Without a doubt, Arrow will leave a void in both The CW’s prime time schedule and our hearts once it concludes in a matter of months, but it’ll live on in another fashion. As you may have heard, a spinoff in the form of Green Arrow and the Canaries is being primed, and it’s set to star Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy Rodgers and Juliana Harkavy as Mia Smoak, Laurel Lance and Dinah Drake, respectively.

From the sound of it, David Ramsey may very well join them as John Diggle at some point. Based on some of his recent comments, he’s far from ready to give up his hold on the character, and who could blame him? Even if the series that originally introduced him is on the way out, there are certainly other Arrowverse shows that’d likely welcome him with open arms.

First, let’s

Arrow Season 8 Will Explain How John Diggle Jr. Became Deathstroke

As well as following Oliver Queen and friends in an adventure on Earth-2, the Arrow season 8 premiere also caught up with Future Team Arrow in Star City 2040. Mia Smoak, William Harris and Connor Hawke came up against a deadly new foe – the latest version of Deathstroke, who turned out to be Diggle’s own son, John Diggle Jr. But how could the child of heroic characters like Diggle and Lyla turn out to be a villain? Well, it seems we’ll find out the answer in the coming weeks.

TV Line caught up with showrunner Beth Schwartz and asked her what happened to JJ to make him hate his adoptive brother Connor so much and to turn to a life of crime. Schwartz explained that the boys “have this really fraught childhood that we’ll explain more in the upcoming episodes.” She went on to add that “[We’ll see] how they got

Oliver Returns To Hong Kong In New Arrow 8×02 Photos

Despite the fact that we’ll have to wait until Arrow actually premieres in order to find out the specifics of the mission the Monitor is sending Oliver Queen on, advance promotional materials are allowing for us to piece together the puzzle. And with the second episode set to air this fall being only three weeks away, the network has released a hearty helping of images taken from “Welcome to Hong Kong.”

Now, as most of us have figured, Ollie will be replaying his greatest hits by either hopping through the multiverse or by means of time travel. Either way, it’s the Monitor who’ll enable him. If you require confirmation of his involvement beyond the premiere, then simply reference the gallery below. Whatever Oliver is doing in Hong Kong has to do with Mar-Novu’s agenda, and I can’t wait to find out what that is.

Arrow Season 8: David Ramsey on Diggle’s Sons

Delia Harrington Alec Bojalad Aug 21, 2019

David Ramsey talks his reaction to John Diggle having an adopted son for Arrow season 8 and the casting of future-jj

Last season, Arrow revealed that in addition to their Flashpoint-gender-swapped son John Junior Aka JJ, John Diggle and Lyla have an adopted son, Connor. We also learned far more about Diggle’s childhood than before, with the introduction of his stepfather, General Stewart, in an excellent guest-starring role from the one and only Ernie Hudson. Den of Geek spoke with David Ramsay, who plays Diggle, to learn more about how this theme of fathers and sons will play out on Arrow season 8, the final season, this fall.

For many viewers, the surprise that JJ was gender-swapped (and no one really seemed to care?) had only just worn off when it was revealed that Connor Hawke was actually Diggle’s grown, adopted son in the future.

Fans Are Conflicted About Whether They Want An Arrow 2040 Spinoff

The adventures of Oliver Queen are soon to end as Arrow reaches its eighth and final season this fall. However, whether by accident or design, season 7 of the show came up with a way for the Green Arrow corner of the Arrowverse to be continued following the Emerald Archer’s exit. Flash-forwards were introduced in the season, exploring the next generation of heroes protecting Star City in the year 2040.

Fans have gotten very hungry for a spinoff featuring Katherine McNamara’s Mia Smoak Aka Blackstar, daughter of Oliver and Felicity, ever since season 7 wrapped up. But could it actually happen? Well, the good news is that it’s definitely being discussed behind the scenes. However, it doesn’t look like it’s a particularly high priority at present, what with the network developing a new Arrowverse property for the 2020/21 season.

So, how are fans taking this news? Well, there are conflicting responses online.

Colton Haynes wasn’t asked back as series regular for Arrow’s final season

Having returned to the main cast of Arrow for its seventh season, Roy Harper actor Colton Haynes has revealed on Twitter that he wasn’t asked back as a series regular for the DC show’s upcoming eighth and final season.

“Getting a lot of angry messages so just to clarify…I didn’t exit the last season of Arrow,” said Haynes. “I was not asked to come back for the final season as a series regular. But y’all know Roy…he’s never gone for too long.”

Colton Haynes Drops Out Of Arrow Season 8 As Series Regular

Arrow has just got 10 episodes left to go in its shortened eighth and final season this fall, but the show’s still lost two of its stars. Emily Bett Rickards exited the series as Felicity in the season 7 finale, and now another major player has been confirmed not to be returning as a regular in season 8: Colton Haynes Aka Roy Harper.

The news was revealed at the recent TCA press tour, with showrunner Beth Schwartz announcing his departure but also making clear that they intend to get him back for at least a guest spot. “We hope to have him back,” the Ep stated. “We love him and he’s obviously one of the foundations of the show.”

This will no doubt be disappointing to Arrow fans, as we only recently had Haynes back on board the show. After a long absence from the Arrowverse – except for a few

Arrow 2040 Spinoff Is Still A Possibility, Says The CW

Arrow season 8 will be the show’s last, but thanks to the ever-growing DC shared universe it’s created on The CW, fans are holding out hope that this isn’t it for the Emerald Archer’s corner of the Arrowverse. In fact, the series recently set up the perfect spinoff – continuing the adventures of Oliver Queen’s kids, Mia (Katherine McNamara) and William (Ben Lewis), in Star City 2040, as seen in the flash-forwards.

Fans have frequently called for such a show to happen, but The CW hasn’t responded to the speculation…until now, that is. At the TCAs this past weekend, the network’s president Mark Pedowitz was asked about the potential for an “Arrow Beyond” type spinoff. Interestingly, he didn’t rule out the idea, but admitted that discussions hadn’t really come down either way on the concept just yet. So, it sounds like it’s a possibility,
