“Arrow” producer Marc Guggenheim has confirmed that Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson won’t be appearing much on the show again due to the impending Deathstroke movie in the works and the studio not allowing them. He tells Discussing Film:

“For a time they were saying ‘you can’t use Deathstroke’, then that changed and we were able to have Slade Wilson back on the show, and now we’re back to ‘you can’t use him’. They’re working on the feature film version.”

Seven Seconds
Netflix has premiered the first teaser trailer and announced a February 23rd premiere date for their new anthology crime drama series “Seven Seconds” from creator Veena Sud (“The Killing”).

After a white cop accidentally hits and critically injures a black teenager, a northeastern city explodes with racial tensions, an attempted cover up and its aftermath, and the trial of the century.
