Joe Manganiello To Play Deathstroke in BATMAN Movie

by Christopher DillardSeptember 8, 2016

Since the reveal of Deathstroke in the DC Extended Universe (Thats what they call their cinematic versions) by Ben Affleck, many have wondered who was behind the mask. Speculation ran rampant, including a favorite of Joe Manganiello (Spider-Man; Magic Mike) from Superhero Slate, which we can now confirm has the role!

In an interview with Geoff Johns, the Wall Street Journal has him mention Deathstroke will be the villain or some part of the upcoming Batman film starring Affleck. No release date or story details are known at this time, however, many assume Deathstroke will cameo in the upcoming Justice League film.

We think Manganiello is a great choice for Slade Wilson and we look forward to his entrance in the DC movies!
