Perhaps Deathstroke is playing mind games with Green Arrow?!

Earlier saw both Stephen Amell and EP Marc Guggenheim welcome back Manu Bennett to Arrow, as Bennet is set to return for Arrow's Season 5 finale.

But then Manu Bennett tweeted out a big "WTF" as well as recently hinted a different actor is playing the role and provided photos.

Now TV Guide is stating Manu Bennett is definitely coming back to Arrow as Deathstroke and will film the scenes later next week and offers up why things seem to be a bit of a mess.

It's possible Manu Bennett's agent may have not told him about returning to Arrow as Deathstroke, as Bennett is currently filming the next season of Shannara Chronicles in New Zealand.

Or another possibility is that it's all a ruse put on by Manu Bennett, possibly to increase hype for his return as Deathstoke!

I would think it's the latter (at least I hope), and that the Deathstroke actor is providing all of us some fun for when Deathstroke comes back to kick the crud out of Ollie once again!

Regarding the Deathstroke actor seen in the photos, it's thought that is a stand in for when Manu Bennett's face is not seen on screen (and explains how Bennett got the photos in the first place).
