Joe Manganiello shows off his Deathstroke for Geoff Johns’ birthday!
It may be DC exec. Geoff Johns’ birthday, but he’s gotten a gift that we’re all benefiting from! While details on Ben Affleck’s upcoming film, The Batman, have been scarce, Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello has zero issue showing off the suit for the upcoming film’s villain. Check it out!
Pardon my language, but the suit looks absolutely badass, and I think he’s going to give Affleck’s Batman a run for his money. It’s unsure if this is an image from The Batman, or if it’s from the upcoming Justice League film, but it’s pretty awesome nonetheless.
Manganiello has had this to say about his role as Deathstroke and The Batman in general:
“I think the audience is going to be surprised, because it’s a road that no one’s really gone down that’s completely integral to, you know, who Batman is. And I think it’s gonna be refreshing but at the same time completely familiar. But it’s going to take this franchise in a direction that I think A lot of people are going to be really happy about. It’s going to be gritty and action packed and cerebral and all of those elements that people love about Batman.”
The Batman is slated to release tentatively in 2018. It also stars Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
What do you think of the reveal? Do you think we’ll see any more of Batman’s infamous Rogue’s Gallery throughout The Batman? I’d love to see DC and Warner Brothers pair Deathstroke up with someone like the Riddler. That character needs to be done justice after the last on-screen adaptation we saw of him. We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas, so join in on the conversation below and tell us what you think!
