‘Arrow’ Unveils Manu Bennett As Deathstroke In New Pictures

Arrow” fans won’t get to see Deathstroke unmasked on the CW superhero series until February 6, but at least they’re getting an early taste of what he looks like now.

Huffington Post has the first images of “Spartacus” actor Manu Bennett as Slade Wilson. As you can see in the above photo, Bennett does a good job portraying a character we’ve only seen masked in the series thus far.

Slade and Oliver will be forced to “form an uneasy alliance on the island of Lian Yu” in episode 13, titled “Betrayal.” Here’s a synopsis of what fans have to look forward to, courtesy of HuffPoTV:

“Betrayal”: Cyrus Vanch (Anders), a nefarious criminal, is recently released from prison and intends to re-secure his position as leader of the underworld. His first step is to take down his biggest opponent in the city –- Arrow (Amell). Meanwhile, Oliver shows Moira (Susanna Thompson) his father’s notebook and questions her about the names on the list. Thea (Willa Holland) is miserable as she starts her internship with Laurel (Katie Cassidy) at the legal aid office and Detective Lance (Paul Blackthorne) makes a deadly mistake that puts Laurel in the crosshairs of Vanch. David Ramsey and Colin Donnell also star. Guy Bee directed the episode written by Lana Cho & Beth Schwartz
