Earlier today, Ben Affleck took to Twitter to reveal raw and cryptic footage of a menacing supervillain, who comic-book fans quickly identified as Deathstroke, the character who made his debut in The New Teen Titans comic back in 1980. Since then, The Wrap has learned that Deathstroke will be the caped crusader’s primary foe in the standalone Batman film that Ben Affleck is directing. In DC Comics lore, Batman first encountered Deathstroke in the character’s eponymous comic book series back in 1991, in a storyline that saw the mercenary beating the vigilante to a pulp. We’ll see if Batman fares better in the film.
