Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke

As 2020 finally comes to an end after dozens of delays to the entire movie industry, fans and stars alike are looking ahead to a hopefully improved 2021. New releases from some of the most prominent franchises currently running, such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe , will bring fans the content they've been so hungry to watch.

In that same realm, Zack Snyder’s Director’s Cut of Justice League will be making its long-awaited debut on HBO Max as a retelling of the 2017 theatrical disappointment. Teases have come on a regular basis giving fans a look into this project the last few weeks, including a brand new one from an actor who is hoping to find himself on screen much more in this version of the movie.


Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello recently took to Twitter to reveal that he is still rocking the mohawk that he will sport in Zack Snyder’s Director’s Cut of Justice League on HBO Max. Even though his hair is blue in the Twitter photo, it gives a hint of how he will look as he suits up as Slade Wilson for the second time in the DCEU.

Manganiello’s full tweet can be seen below:

Even though additional shooting for the Snyder Cut ended a few weeks ago, Joe Manganiello still seems to be in full Deathstroke mode as post-production continues.

Deathstroke has become one of the biggest “what if” stories throughout the DCEU after being teased as a major villain for the past few years. Joe Manganiello’s only appearance to date as the villain came in a post credits scene of the Justice League theatrical cut, and there are no confirmed signs pointing to where his next canon appearance will be.

Thankfully, the actor has been active over social media during the past few weeks teasing a much bigger role in the four-hour long Snyder Cut. No plot details have been revealed concerning his character, but alongside other villains like Darkseid and Jared Leto’s Joker, Deathstroke should finally get his due shine as he hopefully goes toe-to-toe with DC’s top heroes.

The four-part Snyder Cut is set to premiere on HBO Max sometime in 2021.
