It has been exciting few weeks for the DC fans of the world. Just over a week ago Ben Affleck gave us the heads up that Deathstroke would be the main villain in the Batman solo movie set to come out in 2018, which sparked a lot of excitement for me and anyone else who is a fan of Arrow or the original Teen Titans cartoon. Deathstroke (aka Slade Wilson) is one of the more known of the unknown DC villains thanks to this popular tv shows. So that news was already something to get me looking forward to 2018, but this is just icing on the cake.
According to The Washington Journal Joe Manganiello has been cast as Deathstroke in this newest iteration. This news came from the mouth of DC executive Geoff Johns himself, so you can take this to the bank. You may recognize this dashing man from the series True Blood and the Magic Mike franchise. Of all the names I heard for this role, Joe’s was the one I most often heard thrown around. So I’m sure quite a few people are having a pretty good day today.
Johns declined to answer if Manganiello’s Deathstroke would make some kind of appearance in the Justice League movie we have coming up soon, however Mr. Manganiello just so happened to be in London not far from where they are shooting so …. Do with that information what you will.
So are you pumped this casting choice? Or did you have someone else in mind? Talk about it in the comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more news on Deathstroke and other things in the world of movie news.
