It’s official! Ben Affleck has just revealed the villain that will rock Gotham City in his solo Batman film.
The actor shared a cryptic video on his Twitter page that showed the villain known as Deathstroke walking towards the camera clad in his distinctive armour.

The Wrap confirmed Deathstroke’s presence in the currently untitled Batman film earlier this morning, and it appears that this footage will make its way into a post credit scene after 2017’s Justice League.
There’s no news on who is portraying the new villain, but rumours circled last year that Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike) was being tested for the role for Suicide Squad. While Manganiello’s did not make it into Suicide Squad, could he still have won the role and now be involved in the Batman solo flick?
Audiences will next get to see Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman again in Justice League, which will be released next year on November 16, 2017 in New Zealand and Australia, and on November 17, 2017 in the US and UK.
