Joe Manganiello Is Unsure If He’s Still Playing Deathstroke In ‘The Batman’

Deathstroke might not appear in The Batman

Last week we heard a rumour that Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns’ script for The Batman is being re-written while new director Matt Reeves completes work on War For The Planet Of The Apes. Now it seems like that runourmkight have been confirmed by one of the films stars. 

Joe Manganiello was cast as the villainous Deathstroke in the movie but now the actor seems unsure if he’ll still portray the character and go up against Ben Affleck’s Batman. Manganiello recently appeared on Pittsburgh Today Live to promote his new Smurfs movie and of course, was asked about The Batman. When asked if he was still playing Deathstroke, Manganiello said “Umm. Maybe. We’ll see.”

It would be a real disappointment if Manganiello doesn’t end up playing Deathstroke in The Batman. The actor has seemed so excited and prepared to play the role and we can only hope Matt Reeves will still have this character as the villain. 

Deathstroke was also rumoured to have a small role in Justice League to set up Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie so I’m not too sure how that might change. 


Between daydreams of being The Flash, Kieran manages to find the time to read comics, watch movies and keep up with the latest TV Series. The ultimate Superman fanboy his specific interests include the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the DC Extended Universe, and Marvel & DC Comics. Kieran's life goal is to test real-life Iron Man armor. He'd be pretty bummed if he never got to travel the galaxy.
