Last week, Ben Affleck released test footage of Deathstroke from the set of Justice League in London. Manganiello also happened to be in London around that time, so it’s likely that’s who is in the suit. Johns declined to comment on whether Deathstroke has a cameo in Justice League.

Update: Joe Manganiello has responded to the news and says “it’s on”.

Ben Affleck’s Batman movie doesn’t have a release date yet, but Affleck is working on the script with Johns.
