Ben Affleck Talks Deathstroke

Posted October 4, 2016 by Eoin Friel in News

A few weeks ago it was announced that fan favourite Deathstroke AKA Slade Wilson would be the main antagonist of The Batman which hits theatres in 2018. Batfleck recently talked with Collider about why he chose Deathstroke to be the big bad of the movie: “”You know, it’s hard to say exactly what it is. I think the reaction spoke for itself. It just seems like a great counterpart to Batman. They’re similar in terms of skillsets, they’re similar in terms of tone, and he’s never been utilized in a movie before which is really, really exciting.”

Affleck went on “He’s a great villain because—I just had an instinctive feeling that he would match up with him well. You know, I’m a big admirer of that character as well, especially in the New 52 the way that they did Deathstroke, and I thought that it could work.”

Joseph Manganiello will be playing the mercenary in the movie and personally I am counting the seconds until we see it.
