Joe Manganiello posts best Deathstroke photo yet


Anyone who saw JUSTICE LEAGUE since it hit theaters (which is clearly not as many of you as expected) then you probably stayed to the end of the movie to check out the ominous end-credits clip. If you did then you would’ve gotten your first look at Joe Manganiello as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke before he gets his own solo movie in the future. In case you forgot to stay or were holding in a serious bathroom emergency throughout the movie and had to bail, don't worry, cause Manganiello himself took to Twitter to post a pic that gives us a clearer look at the assassin.

The pic was taken straight from the credits scene and clearly has been in some sort of underground vault anyway from the world until the movie came out. Now the photo can be looked over until your heart’s content without having to sit through LEAGUE again. Just, for the love of god, don’t say anything about the eye patch to his face:

In the scene, Deathstroke is seen boarding the yacht of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) after it's hinted that Stroke busted him out of jail. The bald billionaire then suggests to the assassin that they start a "league of their own." Manganiello was first cast in the role some time ago and was slated to be the villain in the solo Batman movie with Ben Affleck. Since then his involvement has been murky as the movie’s pre-production has been tossed to-and-fro. But recently it was announced the character would get his own solo movie from THE RAID director Gareth Evans, which is way more badass than anything we thought possible. 

The second I saw him pop up at the end of those credits I knew he perfect for the role. His physicality is on-point, and just by looking at the photo he just looks so at home in that armor and with those swords. Evans is the perfect choice to helm his solo flick, and the flick should be the perfect way to unleash the character onto the big screen.
