DEATHSTROKE Animated Series In The Works For CW Seed; Official Key Art Revealed

The CW has officially announced that a new animated series focusing on DC Comics villain Deathstroke is currently in development for the network's digital platform, CW Seed. Read on for more details...

Deathstroke is getting his own animated series on CW Seed.

The network made the announcement today during Upfronts, although President Mark Pedowitz didn't go into too much detail about what's in store for the popular DC Comics mercenary's continuing adventures on the small screen. We do know that the series will "follow Slade as his family is threatened by the murderous villain Jackal and terrorist organization HIVE."

If the show sticks to the same format as previous Vixen and The Ray animated series, Arrow's Manu Bennett will likely reprise the role of Slade Wilson - although that's purely speculation at this point.

A new live-action version of Deathstroke is also set to be introduced during season 2 of DC Universe's Titans. That take on the character will be played by Esai Morales.
