Ben Affleck wasn’t just teasing: Deathstroke will, in fact, be the main antagonist of the Batman standalone movie he’s directing. The actor who plays the Dark Knight posted a cryptic tweet of the new villain walking toward the camera in very cinematic fashion.
Deathstroke, aka Slade Wilson, is a soldier-turned-assassin in the DC Universe. An experimental super-soldier project gave him superhuman strength and intelligence, in addition to regenerative abilities. Aside from Batman and the Justice League, he has also clashed with Green Arrow and the Teen Titans. The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, and first appeared in “The New Teen Titans #2” in 1980.
