The internet went into meltdown today when Batman himself, Ben Affleck dropped a massive revelation on his Twitter account – fan-favourite villain Deathstroke the Terminator is coming to the DCEU! We even got a look at their take on the character as Affleck shared some behind-the-scenes footage (see above).
What’s more, we have since learnt that the villain will reportedly be the primary antagonist of the upcoming solo Batman movie, which Affleck will write and direct. Judging by the fact that footage already exists of the character, though, we suspect Slade Wilson will first make an appearance in Justice League.
The big question now is, who will play him? We’ve no idea how long it will be until we find out details on the casting, so for now, let us speculate a bit as to who could step into the role of Batman’s next nemesis….
