Hall is probably best known for his role on Lucifer where he played Edgar Romero in the episode “Monster.”

It had been confirmed earlier that fan favourite Deathstroke would be returning in a big way and would be the main focus of his own story driven episode. It’s now being described as a two-part adventure that will see Slade teamup with the Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) to find and rescue his son, who finds himself in a very dangerous situation.

Towards the end of the season finale Oliver promised to help Slade find his son but it seems that, like father, like son Joe is prone to finding trouble. According to EW, when we meet him, Joe will be a seasoned A.S.I.S. soldier, who after years of brutal combat, finds himself fighting for his life in a remote prison, operating under the alias Kane Wolfman.

How does this news sit with you? Do you still watch any of the DC shows? For me the last season of Arrow was a welcome return to form, it seems, they’re continuing to move in the right direction and more Manu Bennett is great news for everyone as he simply lights up the screen any time he’s on it. It’s also worth mentioning that there was huge buzz and fanfare when Slade returned towards the end of last season but a lingering fear that he would disappear again, so this is great news for long time fans.
