[Movies] Joe Manganiello to play Deathstroke in Batfleck flick

Remember a few weeks back when Ben Affleck took to Twitter to share a screen test of Deathstroke’s costume for the upcoming stand alone Batman movie? Well, now there’s someone to fill it.

Geoff Johns announced in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, that Magic Mike actor, Joe Manganiello will play Deathstroke for the upcoming flick.

Deathstroke (aka Slade Wilson) first appeared in New Teen Titans #2 in December 1980. Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, the villain has become a a foil for all of the superheroes, though he has a deep seated grudge against Batman and Green Arrow.

So, now we know at least one of the baddies for the upcoming movie. Who else will join the cadre of villains for the Batman movie?
