Cinema Blend is reporting a rumor that Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Spider-Man) has all but locked up the role of Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, the most dangerous assassin in DC’s universe, in the upcoming Suicide Squad.

At this point the news is just a rumor but, in my opinion, this would be a bold move by DC/Warner Brothers by both bringing in an in-demand actor who has been in and linked to other comic book movie roles – he portrayed Flash Thompson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and was rumored to be up for Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman Vs. Superman – and by bringing one of their most popular characters to the big screen.

If true, I love the casting choice so I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
