Deathstroke confirmed for Batman solo movie as is the actor playing him…

September 9th, 2016 by Marc Comments


So you may all recall the internet – and us – getting a little excited last week when Ben Affleck shared footage of DC bad guy/anti-hero Deathstroke? No, well you can see it all (here) and we really recommend you check out the footage as it blew us away…

Well, the rumour at the time was that the character would be making an appearance in the Justice League movie but more likely would be the villain in the solo Batman movie to be written by, star and directed by Affleck.

You may also remember that everyone seemed convinced it was True Blood’s Joe Mangienello playing the DC badass, real name Slade Wilson.

And guess what? The rumour mill nailed it on at least two counts.

DC Movie head Geoff Johns confirmed the casting to the Wall Street Journal earlier today.

And we love this on several levels, firstly we think Mangienello will nail the role of Slade Wilson and secondly, we think he’ll be a great foil to Batman in his first outing on his own.

And in case you don’t believe us, watch this glorious trailer for Arkham Origins and tell us you don’t want to see this in live-action and on the biggest screen imaginable…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
