Joe Manganiello's Now Unsure Whether He'll Play Deathstroke In THE BATMAN

Joe Manganiello was on Pittsburgh Today Live yesterday to promote his role in the new Smurfs movie, and seemed rather unsure as to whether he'll still suit up as Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's The Batman.

It's been a tumultuous week for Warner Bros. and Batman star Ben Affleck, to say the least.  The talented actor and director recently announced that he had just completed a stint in alcohol rehab and reports began circulating that the solo Batman movie was no longer on track to begin shooting this Spring.

After weeks and weeks of appearing annoyed by the questions from the media and continued reaffirmations that he would appear in the movie and that he was currently immersed in training for the role, Joe Manganiello was a guest on the Pittsburgh Today Live morning show yesterday, where he kind of threw his hands up in the air when asked whether that was still the case.

If you recall, a few reports from last month stated that Manganiello's role as Deathstroke in the Batman movie was no longer a sure thing and that WB was compensating the actor for the reversal with a role in Dwayne Johnson's Rampage.

With the Batman movie now set to be rewritten from scratch by director Matt Reeves, there seems to be a real possibility that a new villain will be chosen for Affleck's Dark Knight to face.  Until Reeves completes his script, it's anyones guess as to who that will be.
