No details were given and it’s currently unknown whether the character could possibly appear in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League film or Affleck’s yet to be named solo Batman movie. Regardless of which film he may appear in, he’s a welcome addition to the DCEU. The character was first created in 1980 by Marv Wolfman and George Perez as a Teen Titans villain, Deathstroke quickly became a top tier villain and one of Batman’s toughest foes. The character has already been adapted for the small screen with multiple appearance on the CW’s Arrow (played by Manu Bennet). This would mark Deathstroke’s first live action appearance in a feature film.
