Remember that footage of DC villain Deathstroke that Ben Affleck shared on Twitter about a week and a half ago? Well, DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns has reportedly confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that not only will Deathstroke be a primary antagonist in the as-of-yet-untitled Batman solo movie, but that he will be played by Joe Manganiello.
Name doesn’t ring a bell? He played Flash Thompson in the 2002 version of Spider-Man, as well as Alcide Herveaux in the HBO series True Blood. Still struggling to put a face to the name? Maybe this clip from Magic Mike XXL will help:
Yep, that’s your Deathstroke the Terminator. Rawr.
