Gird your uteruses, ladies. Here comes Deathstroke.

Ben Afflecks Batman is going toe-to-toe with DC Comic’s most badass mercenary and assassin, Deathstroke. Guess who’s playing him — True Blood and Magic Mike actor Joe Manganiello. Y’know, the guy with ALL THE DAMN MUSCLES IN THE WORLD.

Affleck, who is also directing the Dark Knight’s first solo film in Warner Bros’ current superhero cinematic universe, recently shared a video on Twitter showing Manganiello in full Deathstroke armor looking as villainous as possible from an open hanger. The actor/director didn’t reveal who was under the mask, but DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns confirmed it was Manganiello.

Johns declined to comment on whether or not Deathstroke has a cameo in Justice League, which is currently shooting in London, but I think it’s safe to say that he…might. Why else would there already be footage of the guy?
