CW Announces Deathstroke Animated Series

Manu Bennett's Deathstroke

Deathstroke will get his own animated series on CW Seed, the network's digital platform.

According to Deadline, CW announced the project at Upfronts. Additional details were not made available about the project, so it's not clear if Manu Bennett will reprise his role. However, the project seems to be in the same vein as Vixen and The Ray, which used actors that also played the live-action versions of the characters.

Slade Wilson/Deathstroke has played an important role in the Arrowverse since its inception. Although he initially started out as an ally of Oliver Queen on Lian Yu, he was injected with the Mirakuru serum, which drove him mad. He served as Season 2's villain. However, he later returned to aid Oliver once the effects of the Mirakuru wore off. He was last seen pursuing his sons, Joe and Grant, after a bloody confrontation with the former.
