Joe Manganiello recently sported his Deathstroke look as Zack Snyder’s Justice League gears up to shoot additional scenes.

Although fans were divided over the Justice League theatrical cut back in 2017, one thing everyone seemed to agree on was the excellent casting of Joe Manganiello as the DC Extended Universe’s Deathstroke. And although the direction of the universe has vastly changed since the film arrived in theaters, many fans are still keen to see Manganiello return as Slade Wilson. And as the film gears up to shoot extra footage for the Snyder Cut, the star recently showed off a hairstyle which looks particularly similar to Deathstroke’s image in the 2017 film’s post-credits scene.

The star revealed the new look when he took part in the Verizon 5G League of Legends: Wild Rift Invitational which streamed on Twitch. Not only does the star have Slade’s short white hair, but he also has the character’s iconic goatee to match. If Joe Manganiello is indeed returning to film new footage for Justice League, he’ll be joining Amber Heard and Jared Leto in the returning cast. Take a look at Manganiello’s Deathstroke look below.

Here is the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, Jared Leto, Amber Heard, and Ciarán Hinds.
