Joe Manganiello Confirmed as Deathstroke in Affleck’s Standalone Batman Flick

The Wall Street Journal has confirmed that the man behind the Deathstroke mask from last week’s Internet video craze is none other than Magic Mike’s Joe Manganiello.

DC film universe executive Geoff Johns confirmed this fact with the WSJ, but he didn’t share many details. All we know is that Joe will be playing Deathstroke in the standalone Batman movie directed by Ben Affleck. Johns didn’t reveal if he’ll make a cameo in Justice League either, but chances may be good considering the Affleck video came from the Justice League set in London.

At this time the standalone Batman film doesn’t have a release window, so stay tuned for more details.
