Cinema Blend is reporting that there may be talks that True Blood alum, Joe Manganiello is being eyed by producers to play Deathstroke.
Deathstroke is the deadliest mercenary in DC Comics. The character is currently being portrayed on The CW's Arrow by Manu Bennett.
While [The Walking Dead](series:201193) alum Jon Bernthal, who played Shane, and Warrior star Joel Edgerton, are being eyed as potential replacements for Tom Hardy's Rick Flag. It seems the studio is having trouble casting the character since Hardy walked away from the project. Jake Gyllenhaal was in talks to portray Rick Flag, but Gyllenhaal turned the role down.
It is being said that Rick Flag's role in the film is small, which may be why the role is getting turn down, considering Will Smith's Deadshot, Jared Leto's Joker, and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn will take the spotlight in the ensemble film.
