During a recent hang out session with the good man Rich Eisen on the sports talk show The Rich Eisen Show, actor Joe Manganiello briefly discussed his role as Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's upcoming standalone The Batman movie.
While obviously Manganiello can't reveal too much about the upcoming film, He did say that he could speak "cryptically about it," so when asked about the film's plot and his role in it, here's what the actor said:
It’s about Gotham. And there’s this guy that dresses like a bat… I play a one-eyed — like, the world’s deadliest assassin, who also has one eye.
When Eisen asked the actor if he had already wrapped on the project, Manganiello responded with:
“Uh, no. We will start at some point this year, it looks like.
Now obviously the actor meant this upcoming year, as we have only a couple of weeks left in the year. So in my opinion this confirms that the film is definitely heading into production this Spring as previously reported. Pretty cool stuff.
