Arrow Casts Liam Hall as Joe Wilson aka Jericho

According to the EW, the CW’s Arrow has cast Liam Hall as Joe Wilson.  Joe is Slade Wilson’s son.  Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke is one of Green Arrow’s most fierce enemies on Arrow.

Oliver promised Slade to get information about Joe to Slade in the last season’s finale of Arrow.  Here is what we know about Joe’s character for Arrow. Joe joined the secret military group A.S.I.S.  He finds himself in a Kasnian prison under an alias of Kane Wolfman.

In the comics, Joe Wilson becomes a superhero named Jericho.  He was a part of the 80s sensational super team The New Teen Titans.  In the comics, Deathstroke was the major villain that faced the Titans.  Jericho sided against his father numerous times.  Joe is mute. His power is to leave his body and control other people through is astral projection.

Jericho and the New Teen Titans were created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez.  This makes his alias on Arrow a nod to the fans and to one of the creators of his character.  I doubt we will see Joe as Jericho and in his classic outfit from above.

At this time, Joe Wilson is only set to be on Arrow for a Two Part episodes focusing on Deathstroke.

Stay Geeky My Friends!
