DC fans have been thrilled with the news that not only is Joe Manganiello still playing Deathstroke in the DC Extended Universe, but he's getting his own solo movie, as well!
Today Manganiello joined the DC Films tradition of social media teases by posting a twitter image of the Deathstroke's iconic mask, with some notable battle damage around the eye:
There's no caption, so it's hard to read into this too much - but it's definitely a fun little tease of the kind of Deathstroke movie that Manganiello and The Raid: Redemption director Gareth Evans intend to make.
Evans recently posted his own Deathstroke teaser on Instagram: A copy of the DC Comics TPB, Deathstroke: Gods of War. That storyline from 2015 saw Slade Wilson up against a mysterious enemy named Odysseus, who has knowledge of a secret mission from Slade's past, which was wiped from his memory. When Odysseus starts wiping out everyone involved with the mission, Deathstroke must piece together his memory again - a quest that takes him to Gotham City and into conflict with both Batman and Harley Quinn.
In short: it's the sort of story that could definitely leave Manganiello's Slade Wilson / Deathstroke looking worse for wear.
The Deathstroke movie is currently in development.
