Ben Affleck reveals which villain will appear in new Batman film

The actor tweeted footage of a major DC Comics villain

Ben Affleck has shared footage of a villain from his forthcoming Batman film.

The actor posted a short clip on Twitter featuring the DC Comics character Deathstroke.

The notorious mercenary will be the main antagonist in Affleck’s standalone Batman film, in which he’s both starring and directing, reports TheWrap.

Deathstroke, an assassin with superhuman strength, speed and agility, first appeared in comic book form in 1980 but did not cross paths with Batman until a 1991 comic.

The villain is also rumoured to be making an appearance in next years’ Justice League movie.
