Arrow Season 6 Casts Liam Hall As Slade Wilson's Son

Here's news I've been expecting for a few days. Manu Bennett showed that he was in Vancouver to film the two-part Arrow episode that has him looking for his son Joe Wilson. Now we know who will be playing the character. Liam Hall who has appeared in the series Camp as well as on Lucifer and Once Upon A Time has been cast to play Slade Wilson's son.

When Deathstroke appeared in the season finale of Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) offered to help Wilson find his missing son. According to, Joe has followed in his father's footsteps and joined the secret Australian military agency, A.S.I.S. and finds himself in a remote Kasnian prison under the alias of Kane Wolfman.

In the comics, Joe Wilson is the mute Titan Jericho. The name Kane Wolfman is likely a nod to the character's co-creator Marv Wolfman.

This is not the same son that we met in DC's Legends of Tomorrow in 2046, that was Grant Wilson (Jamie Andrew Cutler).


Arrow returns October 12th on The CW.
