Joe Manganiello Reportedly Returning as Deathstroke Alongside Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, Fans Convinced Batman vs Deathstroke Happening Soon


With its controversial past and precarious present, it would do the DCEU a whole lot of good if some of its fan-favorite superheroes were to make their comeback to the universe. And with the multiple rumors wafting through the internet about the same, DC might just end up getting back in the good books of its audience.

Fans conjecture that some actors, particularly Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, who are both popular for their respective roles as Batman and Superman, are highly likely to return to the DCEU along with the universe’s popular villain, Deathstroke.

Fans suspect the comeback of Bruce Wayne, Clark Kent, and Slade Wilson to DC

After Justice League‘s release, Ben Affleck announced his leave as Batman in 2019, and not too long after, Henry Cavill was said to be leaving the DCEU as well, courtesy of the reported falling out between WB and him.

The news naturally left a rather uncertain course in its wake for the DCEU. However, there’s been plenty of rumors suggesting the possible return of both actors in future films. What’s more, is that speculation has also risen in association with DC’s supervillain Deathstroke’s return to the franchise, thereby spicing things up for fans.

People believe that Affleck’s cameos in Aquaman and The Flash might be DC’s idea of building up a firm base for the revival of his role as Batman.

Cavill’s Superman is also probably making a comeback to the DCEU, as was recently pointed out by an insider on Twitter, who claimed that as per certain “trusted sources”, Henry Caville was “back.”

Deathstroke is rumored to return to the DCEU

Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke was last seen in Zack Snyder’s Justice League in 2021. But after that, the 45-year-old actor confirmed that he would no longer be playing the character and had resigned from the role.

With this information, fans were rendered even more upset, considering how year after year, actors who played their favorite superheroes seemed to be dropping out as quickly as lightning.

Fortunately, there has been a good amount of theories recently, highlighting the possible resuscitation of all these characters, including Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Ben Affleck as Batman.

Given DC’s current sordid reputation amongst its fans, it is plausible enough to think that these rumors might just be true because this could be a solid way for the DCEU to patch up its broken position.

However, official word concerning the same has not yet surfaced from either the actors or the DCEU.
