Ben Affleck took to social media earlier this morning with a cryptic teaser of someone in a costume of the DC villain character of Deathstroke on a set. The video was posted without explanation, leading to speculation that the character will appear in the upcoming “Justice League” film.
Whether that’s true or not is unclear, but The Wrap reports that the character will serve as the main antagonist in the solo “The Batman” film which Affleck is directing.
Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Deathstroke is a famous mercenary who has gone toe-to-toe with the Dark Knight on multiple occasions. It’s still unclear who will be wearing the mask of the villain.
Affleck is slated to direct the solo “Batman” film and has co-written the script alongside DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns. No official release date has been announced.
