Joe Manganiello tonight shared a professional still photo of himself dressed up in his Deathstroke costume from Justice League.
A few days ago, a set picture of Joe Manganiello in his Deathstroke suit was posted by a Justice League actor. The actor appears in the post-credits scene of Justice League. Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) in the bonus scene is shown telling Joe Manganiello that they need to form their own league.
Ben Affleck (He was to direct The Batman) had hinted about Joe Manganiello’s role in Warner Bros. Batman solo movie. He was expected to play the primary antagonist in the film. Once Affleck moved aside as director to pave way for director Matt Reeves, Manganiello’s future as Deathstroke became uncertain.
Back in July this year, when Manganiello was asked about the status of his role in the solo film, he first replied in the negative, and then went to say that even though he knows it all, he cannot share anything. “I don’t. Well, I do but nothing that I can share. I know everything but I can’t say any of it,” said Manganiello at the time.
It was last month that the studio revealed details of the Deathstroke movie to be directed by Gareth Evans of The Raid fame. The script of the film will be written by Evans as well.
The Deathstroke character (Slade Wilson) was introduced by Marvel Wolfman and George Perez in DC Comics’ New Teen Titans #2 in the year 1980. Wilson is a mercenary and assassin. Extremely strong with enhance agility, reflexes, and healing, Slade Wilson can use 90 percent of his brain at one time, thereby making him a tactical genius.
The character, originally the archenemy of the Teen Titans, has helped in bringing down the team in the Judas Contract narrative. However, in recent years, the character has become a major player in the DC Universe.
Details of the cast and release date of the Deathstroke movie is not known as yet. What would you like to see in Joe Manganiello’s solo Deathstroke film? Let us know in the comment box below.
