Joe Manganiello Begins His DEATHSTROKE Research For Ben Affleck's Solo BATMAN Movie

It was recently confirmed that Joe Manganiello would be playing Slade Wilson in the new Batman movie, and the actor has shared an image of the comics (among other things) he's researching for the role.

Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike) has taken to Twitter to further tease his role as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's planned Batman movie, by sharing an image of some of the research he's doing in preparation. It looks like he's just gathered a bunch of Deathstroke-related items together, but among the various Funko POPs and action figures, the first volume of Batman: Earth One by Geoff Johns can be seen.

This series re-imagines the origins of the Dark Knight and many of his allies and enemies, but Slade Wilson doesn't actually appear. Does this mean Manganiello is reading up on it because it'll inform the plot of the film in some way? It seems unlikely he'd give something like that away in this manner, but still an intriguing choice, we're sure you'll agree.
