If you woke up this past Monday to a half orange cyborg ninja staring you in the face on your social media, you can thank Ben Affleck for that. Believe us, we are thankful.
Who is this "Deathstroke?" Why is he a big deal in the DCU? What does he have to do with Batman? Also, who's behind the mask?
How he will play a role in the upcoming Batman/JLA movies? At this point no one knows. It's alleged that he may show up at the end of the JLA movie to transition himself as the main rogue for Batfleck's solo movie.
The questions "Who's under the suit?" is yet to be answered. If you've tracking clues at all, you may lean on the theory of Joe Manganiello because of his "new haircut" and how he just started following some of the DC higher-ups.
Whoever it may be, we're just happy they're throwing a more obscure and deserving rogue in the spotlight. Deathstroke is an exciting character who has layers yet to be peeled back before a general audience. Based on what we've seen so far, he's getting the job done.
***Bonus***: Deadpool's real name "Wade Wilson" is a running inside joke from the many coincidental characteristics Rob Liefield composed when creating a character similar to Wolverine plus Spiderman. They ran with Wade to keep him as a "relative" to Slade.
***Double Bonus***: Check out Deathstroke go toe-to-toe with Ra's Al Gul in Son of Batman (one of his biggest features in a film)
