More images of the DC Cinematic Universe’s Deathstroke appear online PLUS do we have hints of a future team-up movie?

While Justice League continues to divide audiences, one of the things that many people can agree on was that the appearance of Deathstroke/Slade Wilson in the movie’s final post credit scene, played by Joe Manganiello, was a definite highlight.

While it seems a standalone Deathstroke movie is in the plans at Warners, with The Raid director Gareth Edwards at the helm (here), Manganiello – having had an image of him in the character’s suit revealed a few days ago (here) – has been popping up all over the place in the costume now… so, do we still need a ‘spoiler’ announcement on this?

Anyway, the actor has shared this image of himself in the role:

The image is taken from the end of the movie when he appears on a boat owned by Lex Luthor who has escaped from Arkham Asylum at the end of the movie.

Next, director Zack Snyder shared an image of himself with Deathstoke on the set of Justice League – while the image shows very little, it at least proves that Snyder, and not replacement Joss Whedon, was the one who filmed the scene:

Finally, the scene in question, right at the end of the movie, has Deathstroke and Luthor discussing forming a league of their owns… and while this has many suggesting an Injustice League movie, many are looking back at a post shared by Manganiello at the start of October of himself with a Legion of Doom teeshirt, done in a Justice League style:

The logo on the shirt looks like this:

So, what do you all think? Is there an Injustice League movie coming? Or is it a Legion of Doom movie? Or will  we just see the likes of Joker, Luthor, Black Manta and Deathstoke joining forces in a Justice League sequel?
