Joe Manganiello cast as Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's Batman movie


Everyone in this movie works out

You may recall news last week that Deathstroke will be the villain in Ben Affleck's solo Batman movie. This lead many people to wonder who would be cast as Slade Wilson.

It was confirmed yesterday that hunky Joe Manganiello has been cast as Deathstroke. No word on if the Magic Mike star will appear in a scene wearing an eyepatch and pretty much nothing else. There is also no word on how his best friend Pee-wee Herman feels about this.

Part of me hopes there's some sort of workout montage showing Batfleck doing crossfit stuff in the Bencave. Meanwhile, Deathjoe Manganiellstroke is pumping iron and kissing his biceps in front of a mirror at a Crunch somewhere in Gotham as others admire his build.
