DC's Deathstroke Movie In The Works With The Raid Director

GameSpot has the story.

Though the character of Deathstroke was originally set to debut in a standalone Batman film back when Ben Affleck was writing and directing the project, it seems plans have changed. DC Entertainment is now moving forward with a Deathstroke solo film, which makes it the company's third villain-centric project, after Suicide Squad and the Black Adam movie that Dwayne Johnson will star in.

According to a report from The Wrap, The Raid director Gareth Evans is in early talks to helm the project, from a script he'll also write. Joe Manganiello is attached to star as the comic book villain, whose real name is Slade Wilson.

The news comes after Evans pitched his idea for a Deathstroke film to DC Entertainment, who liked what he came up with. It's unknown how the project would impact the plot of the standalone Batman movie, which Manganiello was originally slated to play Deathstroke in. When director Matt Reeves was brought onto the project, he said the previous script would not be used.

Pretty good casting, IMO.

The guy has the build, is about the right age and the swagger of someone who could play Deathstroke.

His biggest role in the past, on Trueblood, was mostly female eye candy but in the rest of the work he's been passable.
