Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke

Development of the first standalone Batman movie featuring Ben Affleck as The Dark Knight has been somewhat difficult recently. After being attached to helm the movie for months, Ben Affleck pulled out of the project as director and has since handed off duties to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes filmmaker Matt Reeves.

This change behind the scenes has created a production delay for The Batman (which still hasn’t been confirmed as the official title) as the script is being rewritten from scratch. This explains why previously announced star Joe Manganiello, who was meant to play the villain Deathstroke, no longer sounds very certain about his role in the movie.
