Joe Manganiello shares first official look at his Deathstroke

Spoilers ahead, folks

Joe Manganiello has shared the first official look on Twitter as himself playing DC’s most deadly assassin/mercenary, Deathstroke.

Up until now all we’ve seen of Manganiello is some short test footage and a few photos of his costume. However, the actor has now shared a full length photo of himself as mercenary Slade Wilson.

The anti-hero will star in his own solo movie with ‘The Raid’ director Gareth Evans. Check out the Deathstroke reveal below.

Fans of the ‘Justice League’ movie will recognise this shot from one of the film’s post-credits scenes. Deathstroke meets up with Lex Luthor who proposes to start the ‘Injustice League’ as its known in the comics.

Manganiello’s involvement in the DCEU is significant because he was originally revealed to be the villain in Ben Affleck’s standalone Batman movie, before Affleck departed as director.

Last week, Justice League hit cinemas across the world and received a decidedly lukewarm reaction from critics and fans alike.

Now, it seems that the reaction has extended itself to the box office too, after new reports claimed that the superhero epic could lose a staggering $50-$100 million for Warner Bros.

According to Forbes, the huge loss is calculated after factoring in a marketing budget of $150 marketing budget.
