Joe Manganiello’s future as Deathstroke is currently in doubt. When Ben Affleck was still attached to The Batman as the film’s director, co-writer and star, Joe Manganiello was set to serve as the film’s primary antagonist as Deathstroke. These plans were eventually scrapped after Affleck’s exit and Matt Reeves coming into the picture, penning a brand new script from scratch.
Joe Manganiello was last seen as Deathstroke in one of the post-credits scenes of Zack Snyde’s DC Comics team-up movie Justice League. During the scene, Deathstroke is shown meeting with Lex Luthor (played by Jesse Eisenberg) to discuss the formation of a team to take on the Justice League.
