He didn't take off his mask before...
EW.com reports that Manu Bennett has been cast as Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke on The CW's Arrow.
Wilson eventually becomes Deathstroke in the comics. The character was already seen briefly in a flashback with his mask on, but he was played by another actor. As to when the character will become Deathstroke, a source said: "You'll just have to keep watching Arrow."
In flashbacks, Slade Wilson and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will form an uneasy alliance on the island of Lian Yu.
Bennett is committed to several episodes of the show. He will also appear in the final season of Spartacus and has a role as an orc chieftain in The Hobbit.
