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.

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.
