If this is true, the Suicide Squad movie might be even sexier than before!
It was one thing to have a Jared Leto Joker and a Margot Robbie Harley Quinn, but we might be getting a super sexy Deathstroke as well??

The latest rumor regarding DC's super villain team-up movie is that master assassin Deathstroke will be featured alongside the others.
And that Joe Manganiello is the top contender for the role!
Obviously this is still completely unconfirmed, but thus far most of the casting rumors about this film have ended up being solid.
Speaking of which, David Ayer also has to replace Tom Hardy now that Jake Gyllenhaal has passed on the role of Rick Flag.
According to the latest reports, there are two men at the top of Flag poll:
Joel Edgerton, who was great as a SEAL Team 6 leader in Zero Dark Thirty, and Jon Bernthal, who worked with Ayer on his WWII movie Fury.
Either actor would be a solid choice for the Flag, a tough, no-nonsense soldier.
Like we said, this cast just keeps getting sexier!
