Usually when a surprise character for an upcoming blockbuster is announced via grainy twitter image or video it’s to be taken with a grain of salt. But in this case, it was none other than Ben Affleck who tweeted this video of a monitor apparently playing a clip from “Justice League” that shows none other than Slade Wilson (no relation to Wade) a.k.a. DEATHSTROKE.
Rumors are now running rampant, with at least one site claiming to have inside information that not only will Deathstroke appear in “Justice Leauge”, but be the main villain to Affleck’s upcoming solo “Batman” film. At least now we seem to have confirmation on why the character was so unceremoniously dismissed from the CW’s “Arrow.”
Will this tease be enough to start drawing disenchanted fans back to the DC Cinematic Universe?
