Gareth Evans, director of the action movie "Raid" and its sequels, received an offer to make a movie about the antagonist from the DC comics - Deathstroke Terminator. This is reported by The Wrap. It is noted that the negotiation process is still at an early stage, and no contracts have been signed yet.
It is expected that the title role will be played by actor Joe Manganiello, familiar to viewers from movies such as "Super Mike", "What wait when expecting a baby "and others. He had previously planned to take part in a solo project dedicated to Batman, but his script, prepared by Ben Affleck, was rejected by the new director.
Deathstroke Terminator, invented in the 1980s by screenwriter Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez, originally had nothing to do with the Batman universe. He made his debut in The New Teen Titans, which told the story of a team of teenage superheroes. Later, due to its popularity, Deathstroke Terminator received its own series. After the release of the fantastic action movie "Terminator", Deathstroke lost the second part of his nickname. The antagonist's features include slow aging, increased metabolism, superhuman reflexes and strength.
The timing of the Deathstroke movie has not yet been announced.
