In speaking with the Wall Street Journal, DC Comics writer and head of their film division Geoff Johns has confirmed that Joe Manganiello (of True Blood, How I met Your Mother, and Spiderman 1-3) will be playing Deathstroke in Ben Affleck’s Batman movie.
The WSJ asked Johns if he’d be appearing in the Justice League movie and Johns did not answer, so that means “yes” and probably means the clip we saw of Deathstroke last week was probably an end scene credit, so way to spoil that one DC.
Anyways, what do you think of this casting? Me I would have rather seen Joe opposite The Rock in Shazam! but I don’t think that movie is ever getting made at this point. Let us know in the Comments below.
