Arrow casts Slade Wilson's son

Posted on

Slade Wilson’s son is finally coming to Arrow.

EW can exclusively reveal that Camp and Lucifer alum Liam Hall has been tapped to play the son of Manu Bennett’s reformed villain, who will appear in the two-part Slade Wilson adventure first teased at Comic-Con.

The son of one of the Green Arrow’s (Stephen Amell) greatest foes, Joe Wilson has followed in his father’s footsteps by joining the secret Australian military agency, A.S.I.S. After years of brutal combat, Joe now finds himself in a remote Kasnian prison under the alias, Kane Wolfman, fighting for his life.

FYI, Joe is the same son Oliver promised info on in exchange for Slade’s help in the finale, not to be confused with Grant Wilson (Jamie Andrew Cutler), Slade’s potential future son who took up the mantle of Deathstroke in 2046 on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Arrow will return Thursday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
