Deathstroke movie details

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.

The Raid 3

The Raid 3 is (probably) never going to happen, which is sad news for those who have been clamoring for another entry in Gareth Evans‘ incredible action franchise. But in a new interview, Evans has laid out his plan for what would have happened in the third movie if he had made it – and the results are genuinely surprising.

Most notably, it would not have followed Rama (Iko Uwais), the protagonist from the first two films. “I definitely think it would have pissed off an awful lot of people,” Evans said. Check out his detailed breakdown of the would-be movie’s plot below. Read More »

The Raid director Gareth Evans is bringing his talent for show-stopping action to TV.

Evans created and co-directs (along with Corin Hardy and Xavier Gens) the series Gangs of London, in which several gangs end up going to war with each other following the death of a crime organization figurehead. There’s a new Gangs of London trailer to watch below, and it’s loaded with the type of visceral action we’ve come to expect from Evans.

Apostle Review

With The Raid and its sequel, director Gareth Evans established himself as one of the most exciting action directors working today. With Apostle, which is currently streaming on Netflix, Evans has established himself as one of the most exciting folks making horror movies as well. In other words, anything with his name on it is worthy of your attention.

Apostle is a throwback to old school English horror, with Dan Stevens playing a damaged and dangerous man who infiltrates an island cult to rescue his sister. However, it’s not all cheeky Wicker Man references – Evans fills this film with dread and gore and sequences of horrible intensity that demand to be barely watched from behind your hands. It’s perfect Halloween viewing.

I sat down with Evans following the world premiere of Apostle at Fantastic Fest last month and we spoke about the film’s period setting, why he made this instead of The Raid 3, refusing to hide the story’s supernatural elements, directing scenes of extreme violence, and what great horror movies you should marathon alongside his movie. We also debut a very cool new poster for the film, one that perfectly captures the movie’s macabre tone.

Hopefully you weren’t looking forward to that Gareth Evans directed Deathstroke movie, because it’s not happening. At least, not anytime soon. Evans revealed that the film, which was set to star Joe Manganiello, is dormant, and has been for quite some time. That’s not to say Deathstroke won’t star in his own adventure sometime in the future. Just don’t hold your breath.

The Raid 3

Director Gareth Evans quickly garnered acclaim and demand after delivering the intense, action-packed crime thriller The Raid. Then he upped the ante by coming back with an even more fierce sequel in The Raid 2: Berandal. Since then, fans have been wanting to see Gareth Evans get back behind the camera with The Raid 3 to continue the story of police officer Rama (Iko Uwais). But unfortunately, it’s sounding less and less likely that the sequel will come together. Read More »

Apostle Review

Stepping out of his signature style of riveting action-thrillers, Gareth Evans delivers a delightfully diabolic tale centered around a religious cult in his new film, Apostle. The Welsh filmmaker is known primarily for his fight choreography by way of Indonesian martial arts, yet he presents audiences a slower, more atmospheric horror story filled with a menacing score that supports the brutal mentality and withered imagery of the early 1900s.
