Ron Perlman is no stranger to using social media to drum up support for potential future projects; Earlier this year he made a case for why he'd be perfect for Cable (opens in new tab) in Deadpool 2 (opens in new tab), and now it looks like he's thrown his hat into the ring to play another one-eyed badass - Deathstroke.
After a fan added Perlman's vocals to the recently released Deathstroke clip, Perlman took to Twitter to voice his approval.

Perlman has actually played Deathstroke before in the Teen Titans cartoon - which is where that voiceover originates - and that familiarity with the character would definitely serve him well were he to win the role. I get the sense we're still a long way out from finding out who will ultimately be wearing the eye-patch when Ben Affleck's solo Batman film rolls around, but we'll be watching this space.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, J.K. Simmons, Amber Heard, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher, Justice League: Part 1 is currently scheduled for a November 17, 2017 release.
