Batman solo movie villain, Deathstroke, will be played by Magic Mike star Joe Manganiello

TODO alt text

Remember that footage of DC villain Deathstroke that Ben Affleck shared on Twitter about a week and a half ago? Well, DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns has reportedly confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that not only will Deathstroke be a primary antagonist in the as-of-yet-untitled Batman solo movie, but that he will be played by Joe Manganiello.

Name doesn't ring a bell? He played Flash Thompson in the 2002 version of Spider-Man, as well as Alcide Herveaux in the HBO series True Blood. Still struggling to put a face to the name? Maybe this clip from Magic Mike XXL will help:

Yep, that's your Deathstroke the Terminator. Rawr.
