“When we found him, clearly he and Batman have struck some kind of a deal and have some partnership,” explains filmmaker Zack Snyder. “There is a bigger enemy, I suppose. They are not caught in mortal combat. They are actually working together to try to figure out how to make this world work. “
The director means that we can see him in these apocalyptic nightmares of Batman and it seems that Deathstroke He is no longer a villain and works alongside the Dark Knight to prevent the forces of Darkseid take over the Earth.
In the same interview he talked more about why he brought back Jared Leto’s Joker.
Zack snyder has always thought that Joker of Jared Leto has been unfairly treated by audiences after his participation in Suicide Squad. That is why, like a Deathstroke wanted to give it a second chance.
“I wanted to try to keep the promise to have the Joker in this universe and not have him and Batman team up. I always wanted him to be in the reality of the apocalyptic nightmare, so it was a great opportunity. When I spoke to Jared, he was interested in doing it, I felt like, okay, this feels like something I can’t let go of. “.
It is likely that Batman, Deathstroke Y Joker share the screen at some point, and that is very exciting if you are a fan of DC. Since they are three very important characters in the comics.
