Joe Manganiello Shares His Research for Being Deathstroke in Coming Batman Movie

Posted by at 9:52 am on September 29, 2016


Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Joe Manganiello will torment Ben Affleck in the solo Batman movie as Deathstroke. The actor took to Twitter to reveal some of his research for the film, including some Deathstroke comics and graphic novels.


Among the comics in Manganiello’s stack are some of the most recent ones featuring the character, from both DC Rebirth and The New 52, but also the original solo comics from the early ’90s. The two most interesting books from his “research” are Batman: Earth One and Identity Crisis.

Both volumes of Batman: Earth One were written by Geoff Johns, who co-wrote the script for the upcoming film with Ben Affleck, and depicts a more realistic retelling of Batman which has already influenced the DCEU in how it portrayed Alfred Pennyworth in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Deathstroke doesn’t actually appear in either of the volumes, meaning Manganiello could be reading them as a means of grasping what the tone of the movie will be. Identity Crisis, however, did feature Deathstroke.
