This led to speculation that Deathstroke would be the main villain in Batman’s solo film and according to The Wrap, the speculation is true.
Whether Deathstroke will be the only baddie in the film is unknown but we can certainly look forward to seeing him taking on the caped crusader in the solo spin-off.
Deathstroke first appeared in the comics in 1980 and is one of the most popular DC villains. He most recently featured on the TV show Arrow.
There’s rumours that True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello will take on the role as he is currently in London where Justice League is shooting, and he recently started following director Zack Snyder on Twitter.
The solo Batman movie doesn’t currently have a release date, but 2019 seems most likely.
