According to the latest developments, it seems like actor Joe Manganiello is still unsure about his role as ‘Deathstroke' in the upcoming standalone ‘Batman' film, which is going to be directed by Matt Reeves. The sources close to the development are reporting that the actor still has no clue or information about his role as the super villain in the movie. Recently the actor was quizzed about his involvement in the upcoming standalone Batman film, now that Ben Affleck won't be directing the film nor writing for it, to which the actor replied by saying that he doesn't know and he at the moment is doing nothing that he can share. The actor further said that he knows everything but he can't share any information with anyone at the moment.

The movie itself has undergone a lot of changes since the starting of this year. Firstly, Ben Affleck who was initially chosen to direct the movie has stepped down from helmers chair citing that he can only focus on one thing and he chose that one thing to be starring as Batman and Matt Reeves (who is known for his work in ‘The Planet of Apes' franchise) was then chosen to helm the movie. The Second change that the movie went through was the scrapping of the original script, which was penned down by Ben Affleck himself, and now Matt Reeves is working on another script, which is said to emphasize more on the noir aspect of the film.
For the uninitiated, the ' Magic Mike XXL' star was supposed to play the villain Deathstroke when Ben Affleck was directing.
