There have been many villains depicted as the arch nemesis of Batman in his movie avatar. Villains have included everyone from The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, Bane, The Riddler, Two-Face and Ra’s al Ghul to name a few. With the confirmation from DCEU, Deathstroke joins that long list and clearly, he is the perfect villain for this older, rougher Batman. Here are five points as to why that is:
Deathstroke Is A Realistic Villain But Still Fits Into DCEU
After fighting a literal alien by the name of Superman in Batman Vs Superman, it would seem like a downer to see the Batman face petty criminals. But a super soldier who both has super strength, smarts and a heightened sense false of righteous morality would be an interesting enemy for our hero to beat.
Deathstroke Is An Assasin For Hire
Unlike other villains, Deathstroke is a hired assassin which means that he won’t be anywhere unless someone told him to be there and to kill unless he’s been hired to kill. Wilson doesn’t let his agendas rule his profession. So that just leads one to wonder- who would hire Deathstroke? And will this entail further movies of the caped crusader solving that mystery?
