Deathstroke co-creator Marv Wolfman has come forward to publicly praise Joe Manganiello's portrayal of Slade Wilson, aka, Deathstroke in Justice League. Manganiello took to Instagram over the weekend to share the first official picture of himself as Deathstroke in all of his gray, one-eyed glory and DC fans went crazy with speculation about where the character will pop up next. The short cameo at the end of Justice League features Lex Luthor and Slade Wilson meeting on a yacht discussing "a league of their own," teasing a League of Doom spin-off that may or may not ever happen.

Marv Wolfman co-created Deathstroke with George P&#233rez back in 1980 and he's is really excited about the way Joe Manganiello looks as Deathstroke looks like he just stepped out of the pages from a comic book. He had this to say.

Joe Manganiello shares Deathstroke image

Anyone who stuck around for the Justice League end-credits sequence will be aware that Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke makes an appearance, presumably to set up his forthcoming solo outing as DC’s villainous super-assassin Slade Wilson. Now the True Blood actor has taken to Twitter to unveil the first official photo from his Justice League cameo.

The Raid’s Gareth Evans has been in talks with Warner Bros to write and direct the Deathstroke film, but this was prior to the release of Justice League. You can read the tweet as Manganiello’s attempt to maintain interest in the film, or subtle confirmation that it will still go ahead, despite the fall out from Justice League’s perceived failure.

Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Deathstroke is considered the world’s deadliest assassin and one of its greatest tacticians. He is a very deadly foe with enhanced strength and

Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke Officially Revealed in Justice League

Earlier in the week we were treated to a behind-the-scenes look at Joe Manganiello as an unmasked Deathstroke without the eyepatch, and now the actor has revealed the first official image of his character on social media, in all of his gray, eyepatch-wearing glory. By now, there shouldn't be any spoiler alerts for Justice League, and everybody should know that Deathstroke has a cameo in one of the post-credit scenes with Lex Luthor. The scene hints towards a League of Doom project, but in true DC fashion, nothing has been announced or even talked about since, but there have been rumblings of some more Deathstroke coming our way.

The Raid director is developing a gangland TV drama for Cinemax and Sky

Director of The Raid, Gareth Evans, is working on a new TV series for Cinemax and Sky, with the working title Gangs of London.

Evans is known for the high-octane action and brutal hand to hand fights in his The Raid movies, delivering some of the most visceral and exhilarating fight sequences in recent cinematic history.

Now Evans is casting his eye to the small screen, developing a show for HBO’s Cinemax and for Sky Atlantic that bares the working title Gangs of London.

According to Deadline, the big budget gangland drama is being made with Pulse Films, the company’s first foray into TV drama, and Jane Featherstone’s Sister Pictures, which is behind the upcoming HBO/Sky project Chernobyl.

Liam O'Donnell interview: Skyline, Beyond Skyline

Kirsten Howard Dec 13, 2017

We chat to writer-director Liam O' Donnell about the process of making both Skyline films, and the future of genre cinema...

Liam O’Donnell wrote and produced the critically-mauled sci-fi hit Skyline in 2010, and he’s spent the better part of a decade working on the well-received follow up film, Beyond Skyline, which also marks his directorial debut. We talked to him about his experiences on both movies, and whether there might be a resurgence of big budget original genre films.

Brooding Fan Poster For Deathstroke Makes Room For Jason Todd

Jensen Ackles as Jason Todd?

We can see it. As a matter of fact, we’ve already heard it, as the Supernatural mainstay initially voiced the role for Batman: Under The Red Hood back in 2010. But even now, seven whole years later, DC fans are still calling on Warner Bros. to cast Jensen Ackles in a live-action interpretation of Red Hood.

And though it may never come to be, a DeviantArt user by the name of ‘Wandambatha’ has produced a dark and gloomy poster for Deathstroke, the recently-announced spinoff movie that has Gareth Evans (The Raid) and Joe Manganiello attached to direct and headline, respectively.

If the stars align, Manganiello’s Slade Wilson is primed for a big, big future in the DC Extended Universe, though Justice League‘s middling box office performance will surely have Warner Bros. thinking twice about future instalments in its shared franchise. Either way, this

Deathstroke Goes Unmasked in New Justice League Photo

A new image of Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke has surfaced and it features the actor without his infamous mask. Spoilers Ahead. Slade Wilson is one of DC's most dangerous characters and his involvement in the Dceu has been teased for over a year now. He made a cameo in the incredibly divisive Justice League, where the immensely corny "league of our own" comment comes from, lifted from the female baseball movie A League of Their Own. So much for the whole dangerous thing for Deathstroke and Lex Luthor.

The new behind-the-scenes photo features Joe Manganiello on set with 2 of Lex Luthor's bodyguards played by Katia Elizarova and Gem Refoufi. Though the picture doesn't show off the eyepatch, it's still a great image of Slade Wilson, aka, Deathstroke hanging out on set.

Rumor: Deathstroke Still Involved In The Batman, But Lex Luthor Will Be Pulling The Strings

Is there another project in Hollywood that has attracted the same number of conflicting reports as The Batman?

Even before Matt Reeves signed on to direct, the mooted DC solo flick was dogged by countless rumors – rumors that have only intensified now that Justice League is out in the wild. The latest concerns Ben Affleck and, specifically, his future in the DC Extended Universe.

Despite going on record time and time again about his commitment to the role, recently there have been some tell-tale signs that Affleck’s time in the cape and cowl is coming to an end, with Reeves said to be eyeing up Jake Gyllenhaal as a potential replacement. If true, it would have massive ramifications for the Dceu, as Gyllenhaal would surely take point for the inevitable Justice League sequel.

Gangs Of London: new TV series from The Raid’s Gareth Evans announced

Joseph Baxter Nov 21, 2017

Gareth Evans, the action visionary behind The Raid, will create TV series Gangs Of London for HBO’s Cinemax and Sky Atlantic...

The cult cinema myth of Gareth Evans’s innovative 2011 Indonesian action flick The Raid is still resonating some six years after its release, evidenced by the Welsh helmer’s backlog, which, amongst other high-profile projects, consists of writing/directing The Raid 3 and writing an American remake of The Raid. However, it appears that Evans will also be heeding the peak television call, having been tapped to create an action series called Gangs Of London.
