Joe Manganiello Deathstroke

DC executive Geoff Johns confirmed Joe Manganiello‘s casting in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, two weeks after Ben Affleck took to social media to reveal that iconic DC Comics assassin would be the lead villain in the Warner Bros. film.

Johns wouldn’t comment on whether Manganiello will cameo in Justice League, though a cryptic tweet of Deathstroke was seen filming on one of the sets for the upcoming superhero teamup flick, including Wonder Woman, The Flash and Aquaman.

The Batman solo movie isn’t expected before 2018 at the earliest. As for Justice League, it hits theaters on November 10, 2017.

Joe Manganiello is not a bad pick at all. No way Deathstroke is the main villain though. Stay tuned for more information on this.
