Deathstroke star Joe Manganiello recently shared his support for the fan campaign to restore Zack Snyder’s vision for the DCEU.
Now that Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been released into the world and fans are pleased with the result, many are calling for the director to return to the DC Extended Universe to continue telling his Justice League story on the big screen. Although given that the Warner Bros. CEO recently called the Snyder Cut the end of his trilogy it’s not clear if the studio is interested in bringing him back for more. But now Deathstroke star Joe Manganiello has joined the chorus of fans who are campaigning to ‘Restore the SnyderVerse’.
Originally, Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke was going to be the main villain in Ben Affleck’s The Batman before the actor left the role and Robert Pattinson stepped in to star in the upcoming reboot. Had the film happened, it would’ve even seen Deathstroke battle against Batgirl at some point in the story. But Joe Manganiello recently took to Twitter to show his support for the fan campaign regarding the DCEU, posting a photo of himself in the Knightmare Deathstroke costume. Take a look below.
