New Batman Ben Affleck was busy with his social networking yesterday when he managed to tease fans with a video featuring a major DC villain from the forthcoming ‘Batman’ movie, which he will both direct and star in.

The villain is Deathstroke who television fans will recognise from ‘Arrow’. But this version doesn’t look anywhere as cool as far as I’m concerned.

For those who do not know. Deathstroke made his first comic book appearance in 1980 in ‘Teen Titans #2’. Born with the name Slade Wilson, Deathstroke is an expert assassin with super strength and stamina. He’s often been part of Green Arrow’s rogue’s gallery, and on TV has been played by Manu Bennett on CW’s Arrow.

Affleck posted some footage of Deathstroke walking and menacing the camera.

There has up until now. Much speculation about who Affleck’s Batman will face off again. ‘Suicide Squads’ Jarred Leto interpretation of the Joker was one character that was in the running. But Deathstroke would likely be a more interesting choice.

No date has been set for Affleck’s solo film. He’s also set to direct and star the adaptation of Agatha Christie’s short story Witness for the Prosecution for 20th Century Fox.

    It’s sad. They phased certain characters out of the TV DCU to accommodate the Cinematic DCU, and the Cinematic DCU is just not as engaging. On the other hand, Marvel has the exact opposite problem. I honestly don’t know why these companies only get it half right.
