Deathstroke Vs. The Hulk




It has been announced that Joe Manganiello has been tapped to play Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's upcoming solo Batman film, and may appear in Justice League before that.  I think he is a great choice for the role but I must say I am surprised that the Slade Wilson will be used for those films as I have always considered him a New Teen Titans villain first and foremost. I guess they didn't want to wait that long to use him.  Oh well, there's still the Teen Titans: The Judas Contract animated film to look forward to.

I suspect DC wants to bank on the common opinion that Deadpool was a copy of Deathstroke, so fans of one will want to see the other.

I was wondering how many movie-goers would think that Deathstroke was a copy of Deadpool since he reached the big screen first--sort of the way some critics accused John Carter of ripping off Avatar....

I too consider Deathstroke as a Teen Titans foe than a Batman foe but I am doing a wait and see optimism, same reason with seeing Mister Sinister appearing in Wolverine III, even though he's more of a foe to Cyclops than to Wolverine. Then again, I don't mind change on several superhero films and there are some changes that I don't think were good ideas at all.

Deathstroke has always been one of my favorite characters. If anyone could come up with a way to take down the Hulk, it's Slade.

I'm curious to see how he's portrayed in DCEU. I wasn't crazy about his characterization on Arrow. Let's hope they do better on the big screen.
