WB’s upcoming Suicide Squad may be one of the more ambitious CBMs to date.
Latino-Review‘s El Mayimbe promised three big Suicide Squad-related scoops and now he’s delivered the second with a ton of new Deathstroke details.
According to him, instead of being a full-on supervillain with powers,
Deathstroke will be a hired assassin working for Onslaught. He’s said to be the breakout character and his introductory scene is described as absolutely “insane.”
Also, Deathstroke will come face-to-face with the Suicide Squad early on and basically take down the entire team single-handedly.
Deathstroke’s costume is said to be very stealth-oriented and uses an actual U.S. military tactical outfit for the basis. Like his comic-counterpart, his weapons of choice will be a sword and several automatics. The iconic orange/black mask is there, but early concept art does reveal that he will have two eyes, at least initially.
Can't wait to see how this all turns out.
