‘Deathstroke’ Animated Series in the Works for CW Seed

The CW announced Thursday (viaTHR) that it is developing an animated Deathstroke series for its CW Seed digital platform.

The series will follow “Slade as his family is threatened by the murderous villain Jackal and terrorist organization HIVE.” It is unknown at this time if the series is connected to the Arrowverse or if Arrow actor Manu Bennett, who plays the character in the universe, is attached. Fingers crossed that both happen.

Bennett has given a great performance as Deathstroke over six seasons of Arrow. It would be great to see Deathstroke developed further with his own animated series, similar to how The CW treated Vixen.

Are you interested in a Deathstroke animated series? Do you hope Bennett returns to voice the character?
