Joe Manganiello Shares Photo Of Himself As Slade Wilson

For anyone who hasn't seen the Justice League movie, you have likely heard about The Batman movie that was once to be directed by Ben Affleck yet now is helmed by Matt Reeves and whether Affleck will or won't be under the cowl seems to be a daily debate. When the film was first getting rolling, word was that Joe Manganiello had been cast as Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke. There was even a screen test which is where the masked image below comes from. No one is quiet sure what the status of that is either… but there is some spoilery stuff for Justice League below…

One of the ending credit scenes for Justice League has Manganiello in the Deathstroke armor taking a speed boat out to a yacht were we find the recently escaped and bald Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) suggesting that the bad guys need a league of their own. About 12 hours ago Manganiello posted an image of himself from the scene onto his Instagram page. It is interesting to see the former True Blood actor appearing in a DC film after getting his break playing Flash Thompson opposite Toby Maguire in the 2002 Spider-Man film.
