A trailer for Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons – The Movie arrives online, showing Michael Chiklis’ Slade Wilson waging war against H.I.V.E.
Although fans are still disappointed that Gareth Evans’ Deathstroke movie was cancelled following the disappointing critical and commercial reception to Justice League back in 2017, a new animated trailer for Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons – The Movie showcases exactly why Slade Wilson is one of the most formidable DC villains. The project was originally an animated series on The CW Seed, but with over 50 minutes of new footage, the movie looks to revel in Slade taking the fight to H.I.V.E.
The new trailer debuted on IGN and sees Michael Chiklis voice Slade as he teams-up with his wife Addie to save their son Joseph. The notorious organization kidnapped him after the mercenary refuses to join them, and Slade vows revenge. It briefly shows off the bloody violence fans can expect from the full length movie, and should be the perfect answer for fans still wishing to see Joe Manganiello return to the role. Check out the Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons trailer below.

Mercenary and master assassin Slade Wilson leads two lives: one as the relentless killer known as Deathstroke, and the other as a dedicated family man. When these worlds collide, forced together by the vicious terror group known as H.I.V.E., it is the killer in Slade who must fight to save his loved ones, as well as what remains of himself.
