Batman actor Ben Affleck recently tweeted out a video of Deathstroke, with one possible interpretation being that Affleck is alluding to the character being included in one the actor/director's upcoming DC Films projects - the Justice League two-parter or the as-yet-untitled Batman solo film. Take a look:

The video closely resembles Deathstroke's appearance in Batman: Arkham Origins, the third installment in the Arkham game series. Deathstroke is one of the game's bosses, all of whom are assassins hired to hunt down Batman simultaneously.

The Arkham game series has become a key influencer on DC movies and even comic books, with Harley Quinn's revised look for the game being an inspiration for her appearance in the recent Suicide Squad film.

Justice League is scheduled to be released in theaters November 17, 2017. The solo Batman film, which Affleck is scheduled to direct, has not been given a public release date.
