While his status as the villain Deathstroke in the upcoming Batman movie is up in the air, actor Joe Manganiello may be getting something even better: his own movie. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Gareth Evans (The Raid) is currently in talks to write and direct a solo Deathstroke flick. While no word on casting has taken place, it is safe to assume that Manganiello will star, especially if he is cut from the latest script for “The Batman.”
Just remember that currently this is all in the “talking” stage, so any number of changes can happen before the movie finally hits cinema.
Do you prefer Deathstroke as a supporting character or would you rather he headline a movie? And could this change in his DCEU status have any impact on the recent reappearance of the character on Arrow? Leave your theories in the comments below.
