Joe Manganiello joining Suicide Squad as Deathstroke?


New Suicide Squad rumors popped up today suggesting that True Blood’s Joe Manganiello may be joining the cast as the hired assassin, Deathstroke. This news comes after it was reported that the team will take on Antiphon and the group Onslaught.

According to Latino Review, Joe Manganiello will be a part of Onslaught as Slade Wilson.

Deathstroke works with/for #ONSLAUGHT & does their dirty work. He’s a hired assassin and he doesn’t have any powers like in the comic book. They’re going for a pre-super villain Deathstroke. He’s a huge part of both of the major set pieces of the film.

The report says that Deathstroke has some pretty big scenes with the squad and almost takes them down single-handedly. He will have his trademark swords and arsenal of guns. His mask will be just as fans will remember it from the comic books, only at this point in the story he has both eyes.

Oddly enough, Joe was originally penciled in for the role but had a scheduling conflict with the movie Scream Queens. Now that he has been dropped from the movie, many believe that he is a shoo-in for the role. Now we’ll have to wait for Warner Brothers to make it official…or not.
