Ben Affleck Teases Deathstroke in the DC Extended Universe


Ben Affleck has gone onto to Twitter to shared a major tease as to who is coming to the DC Extended Universe.  As seen in the video Affleck shared, it shows Slade Wilson/Deathstroke appearing in an upcoming DC Extended Universe film, in what looks like it could be an after credit scene for Justice League, hinting at The Batman.

Affleck who plays Batman in the DC Extended Universe, is set to direct The Batman, so it wouldn’t be too hard of a stretch to think Affleck would be hinting at who will be in The Batman. As it’s already known that both Geoff Johns and Affleck have made some rewrites on Justice League to accommodate the continuity for the next solo outings.

This also wouldn’t be the first time that the director for an upcoming film, to film a scene in another within one movie tease the next. Such as Joss Whedon filmed the after credit scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, teasing The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Joe Manganiello has recently started following Zack Snyder, director of Justice League and there are reports that he is currently in London. A while back he was reported to have tested for the role in Suicide Squad, even started following Suicide Squad director David Ayer, so perhaps he did test, but it was for the Justice League and The Batman film. Recently a rumor was suggesting that David Ayer was writing Suicide Squad 2 and has decided on using him in the sequel, so it also fits in with those plans as well.

Though keep in mind, none of these reports, including Deathstroke being in Justice League, The Batman or Suicide Squad 2 have been confirmed by Warner Bros. It’s certainly a safe bet he is in one or all of them, but despite what many sites are claiming no one has outright confirmed his appearance in any of those films. However, Marc Guggenheim has confirmed that Deathstroke is not returning to Arrow anytime soon, due to him being tied up in the DC Extended Universe, so he is coming.
