Joe Manganiello Playing Villain Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's 'Batman' Movie!

It’s official – Joe Manganiello will be playing villain Deathstroke in the DC Comics solo Batman film starring Ben Affleck.

DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns confirmed the news to the Wall Street Journal.

Joe also commented on the news by retweeting a video posted by Ben back in late August. The video shows Deathstroke running on set (seemingly this is Joe in costume on set). Watch below!

There is no set release date for the Batman solo film, but it could be in theaters as early as 2018. Ben is directing the standalone movie.

    Manu Bennett was great as Slade in Arrow. Will be excited to see Joe’s performance and his take on the character.
