After Arrow's action-packed season finale last week, fans are seeing Deathstroke in a whole new light. The guy is becoming more of an anti-hero, and he's beginning on this new quest to find his son. With this storyline unfolding, everyone online has started begging for a Deathstroke solo series.
When we say everyone, we mean everyone. Deathstroke creator Marv Wolfman seemed excited by the idea, as did Arrow star David Ramsey. Well, now it looks like Deathstroke himself is in on the action.
Manu Bennett has played the character since season 2 of Arrow, although he hasn't been around much as of late. But now he's back in business, provided he's one of the chosen characters to survive Arrow's finale cliffhanger.
On Twitter Wednesday afternoon, Bennett started urging fans to help get Deathstroke his own series. He called for everyone who wanted a Deathstroke show to "rally" together so they could make something happen. He also tagged DC Comics, WB, producers Greg Berlanti & marc Guggenheim, and Netflix, just to make sure they were aware of how much people wanted this to happen.
With this kind of support, maybe a Deathstroke series is possible. The only real hurdle in the process would be the DC films, which are set to begin featuring the same Slade Wilson character, portrayed by Joe Manganiello. That hasn't exactly gotten in the way in the past though, as The Flash and Captain Boomerang each have big-screen counterparts as well.
If you're in support of this potential series, be sure to back Bennett up on Twitter, he's loving the help fans are giving him.
