Deathstroke To Be The Main Villain In The Batman Solo Film

Well it looks like that footage Ben Affleck shared today has some meaning, as TheWrap's Umberto Gonzalez reports that Deathstroke will be the main antagonist for Affleck's solo Batman film.

Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Deathstroke, Slade Wilson, first appeared in The New Teen Titans (vol.1) #2. Deathstroke was originally known only as "The Terminator" but with the making of the popular Terminator movie franchise starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (four years later) the name was abandoned to avoid the possible confusion.

Now there still could be a chance that Slade Wilson will appear in Justice League in a cameo capacity and will have a greater role in the solo film.

The Batman solo film will be written, directed, and star Ben Affleck with Geoff Johns co-writing the script with Affleck. The film has no release date set as of now.

Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko,

Justice League hits theatres November 17, 2017.

Wonder Woman is slated for release on June 2, 2017; followed by Justice League on November 17, 2017; Aquaman on July 27, 2018; an untitled DC Film on October 5, 2018; Shazam on April 5, 2019; Justice League 2 on June 14, 2019; an untitled DC film on November 1, 2019; Cyborg on April 3, 2020; and Green Lantern Corps on July 24, 2020. The Flash, Harley Quinn spinoff, a Man of Steel sequel, a Batman solo movie, and a Justice League Dark film are currently without release dates.
