A report is saying that Deathstroke may return in “Arrow” season 3.

ScreenRant posted part of an interview with Ra’s al Ghul actor Manu Bennett, who said that it’s possible Deathstroke won’t be gone from the series after the Season 2 finale.

“Realistically, when we talk about storyline, they threw me into a really interesting place: Purgatory,” he said in the interview.

Bennett added: “You know, I’m left at the end shaking the bars, going ‘I keep my promises, kid.’ And I think I meant it. So I don’t think that they are just going to let that voice subside into the vast abyss… But at this stage, I don’t know. They said at the end of the season last year, they said: ‘Look, we want you back. We want you back.’ But there’s been no indication yet of how they’ll go about that at any point in time, right now.”

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that Arrow’s next season will include less superpowers

“We’re not really planning on revisiting superpowers or enhanced abilities during season 3. We are really returning to the show’s roots of a very grounded world where it’s very realistic. We may take occasional artistic license with things, but for the most part, everything is pretty well and truly grounded in real-life things and real-life science,” showrunner Marc Guggenheim said.

And other reports have indicated that Arrow and the Flash’s crossover episode is called “The Brave and the Bold.”

“I can’t overstate the importance of this crossover. While we won’t see a Justice League movie until at least 2017, these two episodes are going to put more live-action comic book characters in one place this side of a Marvel movie. More importantly, it’s the first time two a-list (and yes, Green Arrow now qualifies) DC Comics superheroes on screen together,” writes Den of Geek’s Mike Cecchini about the episode.
