Ben Affleck was chosen as the “creative man” who will co-direct and contribute to scripting the standalone movies of the new Batman franchise. Further, Geoff Johns (comic-book writer turned Chief creative officer at DC comics) is deeply involved in the creative process which lends credibility and infuses a lot of hope into the venture. According to sources, Ben and Geoff want to make a definitive Batman film, so the movie will be crammed with major villains of Batman universe that fans ever wanted to see. They will bring all the big guns at the very first outing, and create a sprawling Bat universe.
Well, it’s official now that Deathstroke will be one of the big villains in Batman solo movie, tweeted by Ben Affleck. He made his TV debut on CW show Arrow and will always be remembered as the best ever in the show’s history. He will be up against the greatest detective and superhero the world has ever seen – THE BATMAN. Does he stand a chance? Are we underestimating Deathstroke’s abilities? Hell yeah!!
In DC Comic-book universe, he is an assassin for hire who always gets his way. He is one of the most powerful figures whose powers are off the charts and he has a sword with a magical blade. He could calculate every move of his opponent and then destroy him at will. In one of the DC storyline titled “Identity crisis”, Deathstroke single-handedly took care of the entire justice league.
In fact, in the interview with TheMusic.com, Manu Bennett (who played the role in Arrow) said: “I think Deathstroke had a lot of possibilities with Arrow but, I think they took it in the wrong direction.”
He further added “It took the Justice League to defeat him; it took an army to take him on. In Arrow, it took a while for Oliver [Queen/Arrow] to prove his point, but [season three] was just a beating of Slade, adding insult to injury.”
