Ben Affleck Leaks Deathstroke ‘Justice League’ Clip

Deathstroke, Batman: Arkham Origins

Are you sitting down for this news? Ben Affleck leaked a key detail about the upcoming DC team-up movie Justice League, Deathstroke is joining the film. Ben Affleck stars in Justice League alongside of Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, and Ezra Miller, and is serving as executive producer on the film as well. Deathstroke is an interesting inclusion in the two-part film that will bring a little uncensored chaos to the DC Cinematic Universe.

In a short clip released on Twitter, Affleck revealed to the world that Deathstroke will be in the film. Check out the short clip below:

 Justice League is about to wrap, meaning that this could be footage of Deathstroke from the film. Although the clip quality isn’t great, it will add a different dynamic to the film, and give the Justice League a minor villain to combat. Death stroke, a.k.a. Slade Wilson, is an enhanced assassin for hire able to stand toe-to-toe with most heroes in the DC universe. Having undergone an experimental test that granted him super speed, heightened strength and senses, Wilson doesn’t backdown from a job until it is complete. Does this mean that the mercenary is coming for Batman or Superman?

The biggest question I have is who is playing Deathstroke?

Offering an update on the stand-alone Batman film, Affleck told Comicbook:

“I have a script. We’re still working on it and I’m not happy enough with it yet to actually go out there and make a Batman movie, which I would have the highest of standards I would say.”

 Does this mean that we could see another Batman film soon? It definitely appears so. Warner Bros. is keen to get the Dark Knight back on the big screen again as quick as possible, but it is nice to hear that the man behind the film is trying to find the perfect way to bring Batman back.


Justice League is set for a November 17, 2017 theatrical release.
