We've already seen Deathstroke in full costume on CW's popular new show, Arrow, and now an actor is officially attached to the role.

Manu Bennett, of Spartacus fame, has been cast as Slade Wilson, reports EW.

Bennett will be featured in flashbacks from the island teaming up with Oliver Queen, described as an "uneasy alliance," and will be appearing in multiple episodes.

It's also noted that Deathstroke will be a worthy adversary to Stephen Amell's Green Arrow, which is a no-brainer, but that also hints that Deathstroke will make his way to Queen's present day city of Starling City.

Speaking of adversaries, it's recently become known just who John Barrowman plays in the show.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm ET on the CW.

Here's an image of Deathstroke from Arrow in full costume (different actor):
