James Gunn Just Confirmed He Has Plans For Deathstroke in the DCU

Slade Wilson, most notably known as Deathstroke is one of the most notable Teen Titans villains. The character did appear in DCEU in ‘Justice League’ but ever since then, fans have been asking for more.

Now when Gunn rebooted the cinematic universe and dubbed it DCU, fans were expecting plenty of characters to make the jump, but only a few hoped that Deathstroke would make the cut.

Fans asked James Gunn whether he has plans for Deathstroke in the DCU and to confirm with a wink if he does, and surprisingly, James Gunn winked, you can see the exchange below:

Deathstroke appeared in both cuts of ‘Justice League’ as he had dealings with Lex Luthor and wanted to get his hands on Batman by any means necessary. The character was played by an actor Joe Manganiello.

Naturally, since all we have from Gunn is a single wink we can’t even start to speculate whether the character will be recast and in which project he might appear. Since we know that the ‘Teen Titans’ live-action movie is in development, considering that he is more closely tied to Titans in the comics than other superheroes, we can expect to see him in that upcoming project.

Then again, due to his nature and the nature of his “work” he would work really well in the upcoming ‘Peacemaker’ and ‘Waller’ TV shows.
