Joe, 39, reposted the video of Deathstroke that Ben, 44, revealed on Twitter on Aug. 29. The actor, best known for his sexy role in the Magic Mike movies, posted the video on Instagram and captioned it, “It’s on.” The mystery of who is Deathstroke has finally been solved! Now the hype is real!
The footage of Deathstroke, whom we now know is Joe, features the villain walking toward the camera in what looks like a secret facility. Deathstroke, in full costume, gives the camera a look in the video’s final second that could kill.
This is Joe’s biggest role to date, and we know he is going to kill it. The True Blood star and Sofia Vergara’s hubby stands tall at 6’5″ and has the body of a god. He’s perfect for the role. While we still don’t know how big of a role Deathstroke will play in the Batman movie, you know he’s going to make one heck of an impression amongst fans. He’s probably the movie’s main villain!
Deathstroke is one of the most beloved villains in the DC universe. Deathstroke’s real name is Slade Wilson. He’s a former soldier who was given a super serum that gave him abilities beyond his wildest dreams. He becomes a lethal assassin that everyone fears.
Ben is currently working on his standalone Batman movie and Justice League. Maybe Deathstroke will make his first appearance in Justice League, leading to an even crazier showdown with Batman in Ben’s solo movie.
