Deathstroke Will be a Major Villain in Ben Affleck Batman Movie

The Longtime DC Villain

The Wrap reports that one-eyed villain Deathstroke will be the primary antagonist in Ben Affleck’s upcoming Batman solo movie.

Created in 1980 by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, Deathstroke is an expert assassin who has gone toe-to-toe with the Dark Knight on multiple occasions and actually beaten him more than once.

Earlier this morning, the star/producer posted a video of what appeared to be a big-screen take on the longtime DC villain dressed in head-to-toe armor. Check out a brief video which Affleck shared on his social media channels.

Looks like a Power Ranger. However, the first footage of the highly skilled mercenary was shot on the set of Justice League movie slated for 2017 so expect many more little tidbits of information to trickle out between now and then. The Affleck’s solo film is still shrouded in mystery.
