Another DCEU veteran is joining the cast of Zack Snyder's Justice League. Fresh off the news that Jared Leto's Joker is being added to The Snyder Cut, Collider reports Joe Manganiello will be reprising the role of Deathstroke. As with Joker, it's unclear how extensively Deathstroke will factor into the plot. However, Collider's source confirms Manganiello is specifically taking part in the current round of reshoots and Snyder won't simply be reusing existing footage of the character from the theatrical cut. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=justice-league-snyder-cut-all-the-known-differences-from-the-theatrical-version&captions=true"] Manganiello's Deathstroke originally appeared in Justice League's post-credits sequence, where he was recruited by Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor to join the Injustice League. We previously speculated Snyder might be expanding on that scene by adding Leto's Joker to the mix, and this casting news may lend further credence to that theory. Prior to Justice League, Manganiello's Deathstroke also appeared in a quick test shoot for an unknown project. Deathstroke was expected to be the main villain of The Batman, back when that project was still slated to star Ben Affleck's version of the Dark Knight. However, with The Batman now becoming a full-fledged reboot starring Robert Pattinson, it's unclear where or even if Manganiello will play Deathstroke again. The Raid: Redemption's Gareth Evans is also rumored to be directing a solo Deathstroke movie. Here's what we think the Deathstroke movie needs to succeed. Deathstroke did recently star in his own animated movie. Check out the trailer for Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons below: [ignvideo url=""] Zack Snyder's Justice League is a four-part limited series exclusive to HBO Max, with a release date planned for some point in 2021. Snyder revealed the first trailer for his version of the movie at DC FanDome, while also teasing some of the new scenes will involve The Flash using time travel.
