Actor Joe Manganiello plays Deathstroke in the DC Comics movies and at one point there were a lot of plans for this character.
The next time we will see Joe manganiello What Deathstroke / Slade wilson will be in the version of Zack Snyder’s Justice League which will premiere in HBO Max on March 18, 2021. It has also been confirmed that his participation will be more extensive than what we saw in theaters in 2017. But beyond this film, we do not know if we will see him again playing this character from Dc comics.
When Ben affleck he was preparing his film about Batman solo, had plans to include Joe manganiello What Deathstroke, but it is something that never happened, since they left the project. Now, in a recent interview, the actor has commented on the plans that were being canceled.
“When the dust settled, it was not considered a priority to make a $ 40 million movie about a villain’s origin story that shows the backstory.”
However, there was still some hope for Joe manganielloas it reveals: “There were four or five different versions of Suicide Squad 2, which they put me on hold for. I had to wait for an actor to be released to see if he was taking his place. They then redo the ending credits sequence to provoke a Justice League 2 Injustice League for the bad guys. But it is something that did not happen, clearly.
Like Jared Leto, he will get another chance to play his DC Comic character in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
This new opportunity has meant a lot to Joe manganiello, since he has allowed to bring some of his ideas from Deathstroke to the movie.
“At the end of the movie, I always imagined him shaving his head on some kind of war mission, bordering on suicide. This is it, I’m going to die a warrior. I explained it to Zack and he said: Great, let’s do it ”.
As for if there is any future for him as Slade Wilson, Joe manganiello it is clear: “I think there will be enthusiasm to continue what Zack was doing.”
