A stroke of casting genius?

Warner Bros. is still figuring out the recipe for success with its DC Comics properties, and Ben Affleck seems to be their hero (not one the studio deserves, but the one it needs right now) with his solo Batman movie.

Things got more interesting when Affleck — who is writing and directing, in addition to playing the leading role — revealed that the villain would be none other than Deathstroke!

Well, it looks like Batfleck called on some serious muscle to fill out Deathstroke's armor… because Joe Manganiello has officially been cast to play the deadly super-assassin!!

According to The Wall Street Journal, DC Films head Geoff Johns confirmed the True Blood star was tapped to play the role on Thursday — though wouldn't say whether the character would show up in the upcoming Justice League movie.

We think the Magic Mike actor is a pretty good choice for the role, seeing as his Adonis-like physique will convincingly give the Dark Knight a good beatdown when they face off against each other.

Are U excited to see Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke?
