We’ve been told that “Arrow” season six will be about family for Oliver, and it looks like that will be the case for Slade Wilson this season as well.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Slade’s son Joe Wilson will be appearing in a two-part story this upcoming season, and will be played by “Camp” and “Lucifer” actor Liam Hall.
Here is how Entertainment Weekly describes Joe Wilson when we see him in season six:
Joe Wilson has followed in his father’s footsteps by joining the secret Australian military agency, A.S.I.S. After years of brutal combat, Joe now finds himself in a remote Kasnian prison under the alias, Kane Wolfman, fighting for his life.
They also confirmed that Joe Wilson is indeed the son that Oliver agreed to share more information about for Slade’s help in the season five finale.
I’m definitely excited that Slade’s son Joe is coming to the show, and would absolutely love it if he follows his comic counterpart closely in that we eventually see him become Jericho, as he has a fantastic origin story.
