Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike) appeared briefly in a post-credits scene of Justice League back in 2017, playing a menacing mercenary named Deathstroke. His appearance was designed to set up a sequel and maybe even a solo spin-off movie, but so far, neither one has happened.
But now Manganiello is getting another shot at wearing the character’s eyepatch. A new report says he will be a part of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the four-episode HBO Max series which will consist of footage Snyder shot the first time around, as well as additional photography that’s taking place right now.

In the post-credits scene of 2017’s Justice League, the costumed mercenary Deathstroke (Joe Mangianello) emerges onto Lex Luthor’s yacht and suggests that if the good guys have their own league, perhaps the villains should have a league of their own. That setup has yet to be paid off in a DC Comics movie, and since the priorities at the studio have shifted, it seems like it never will.
But three years ago, The Raid director Gareth Evans was attached to direct a Deathstroke film which would have told the character’s origin story. Even though that project fell apart, Evans is now spilling some details about what his approach would have been if everything had fallen into place.
