Joe Manganiello To Return As ‘Deathstroke’ In ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’



Zack Snyder’s Justice League is bringing Joe Manganiello back as Deathstroke for additional photography.

Following from the news of Jared Leto’s return as the Joker, Collider reports Manganiello is returning alongside Leto, Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher and Amber Heard.

Manganiello made a small appearance as Deathstroke aka Slade Wilson during the end credits of Josstice League where he met with Lex Luthor (played by Jesse Eisenberg) onboard his yacht, as Superman’s archnemesis laid out the idea an Injustice League to go up against the newly minted Justice League. Supposedly there was a lot more to Deathstroke’s appearance, but it ended up on the cutting room floor like most of Zack’s work did.

There were plans for Deathstroke to appear in Affleck’s Batman film while he was still attached to direct, but once Affleck hung up the cape and cowl (which he since returned too) the idea of Slade returning went out the window.

Fan’s were questioning whether Joe was gearing up for a return to the role last night during his Twitch stream, in which he was supporting the grey hairstyle once again.

I’m glad Joe gets to return, he deserves the opportunity to show the world what he can do as Slade. More importantly, I hope this opens the door up for him returning as the character in other DC films down the line.
