Joe Manganiello is Deathstroke in Ben Affleck’s Batman movie.

Joe Manganiello has been cast as Deathstroke in Ben Affleck’s Batman movie!

DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns confirmed the casting in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.

Aside from Ben Affleck reprising the role of Batman again, this counts as the first piece of solid casting information from the upcoming standalone movie return of the Dark Knight.

Affleck is set to direct the next, thus-far untitled Batman film for Warner Bros, and he’s also working on the screenplay for the movie. And following his earlier hint that Deathstroke would be appearing in the Justice League movie, it’s now been confirmed that the character will be in the next Batman film. Furthermore, we now know who’s playing Deathstroke too, as Joe Manganiello has landed the role.
