ARROW: Meet The Leader Of The Deathstroke Gang In A New Clip From The Season 8 Premiere

After teasing the gang in the previous season, a new clip from Arrow's season 8 premiere gives fans their first official look at the leader of the dangerous Deathstroke Gang. Check it out after the jump.

While it doesn't look as if Manu Bennett's Deathstroke will return for the eighth and final season of Arrow, the villain's legacy still lives on in the year 2040, thanks to the Deathstroke Gang operating out of Star City.

And now, courtesy of a new clip from Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at the gang's leader, John Diggle Jr., who will be portrayed by Russian Doll star Charlie Barnett.

The seventh season of Arrow introduced viewers to J.J.'s nefarious organization, but aside from a few references, the group ultimately had little impact on the story. However, it appears that will all change in the upcoming eighth season, and as you can see in the clip below, J.J. doesn't have the same moral compunctions as his more heroic parents.

The final season of Arrow will premiere Tuesday, October 15 and will see Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy and more return to reprise their roles.
