Ben Affleck shares footage which teases the appearance of a major DC villain
Well, this certainly comes as a bit of a Monday morning surprise, Ben Affleck shared live-action footage via Twitter of what appears to be DC Comics villain Deathstroke. Whether this is a confirmation that the villain is due to make an appearance in Zack Snyder's upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE or Affleck's own standalone BATMAN film isn't certain, but it's definitely a revealing tease either way.

UPDATE: The Wrap is reporting that Deathstroke will be the main villain in the solo BATMAN film, but we'll just have to wait and see. Either way, he's popping up in the DCEU in one place or another.
Deathstroke, also known as Slade Wilson, is a ruthless mercenary and assassin who has gone up against just about every major DC hero there is, he may not have superpowers on par with most of the JUSTICE LEAGUE, but he has more than enough skill to get the job done. The character has appeared on The CW's Arrow, played by Manu Bennett, but if Deathstroke is set to make an appearance in the DCEU, this would mark his live-action feature film debut. JUSTICE LEAGUE is set for a November 17, 2017 release.
Sound off below, JUSTICE LEAGUE cameo or BATMAN test-footage? Also, who should play Deathstroke?
