Zack Snyder Teases Deathstroke With Photo

A month ago came the video tease which later led to the confirmation that the assassin Deathstroke would serve as the villain of the upcoming Ben Affleck-directed “Batman” solo film, a role that “Magic Mike XXL” star Joe Manganiello is set to play.

Today, “Justice League” director Zack Snyder has posted a photo from the set which reveals a set of storyboards for a scene with the character who is expected to show up briefly in “Justice League”. The boards suggest the mercenary shares a scene with Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor. Check it out below.

The photo follows on from another photo posted earlier this week by Manganiello of his research for the role, along with some concept art by artist Robert McKinnon of alternate designs for Aquaman’s trident, Wonder Woman’s sword, Superman’s casket and Superman’s statue which were designed for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and ultimately rejected. Check those out below.

Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot reprise their roles as the DC Trinity, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman in the “Justice League” film which opens November next year.
