A new report from The Wrap today has indicated that Deathstroke will be getting his own DC Comics film. It is unknown whether or not it will be part of the DCEU at this time.
Joe Manganiello is on board as DeathStroke and the film will be directed by The Raid top man Gareth Evans. Both Raid and Raid 2 have incredible action sequences, so this is great news for Deathstroke fans. He has made many appearances lately in shows such as Arrow on the CW, as well as in video games like the Batman: Arkham Series. Deathstroke is the main villain in Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go! as well as the main villain in his own comic series.
Manganiello was originally supposed to be part of Ben Affleck’s The Batman film, but that was scrapped after Ben Reeves took over as director. It’s unknown how he will tie into the current schedule of films, but we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer to find out. We’ve reached for some information and will follow up with what we find out.
