The Raid director Gareth Evans is in talks to direct a Deathstroke feature film which would star Joe Manganiello, according to The Wrap.
Manganiello was originally reported to have been cast as Deathstroke for Ben Affleck's The Batman in September 2016. According to the Hollywood trade, Manganiello was dropped from that film after Affleck passed directing duties to Matt Reeves.
The Wrap asserts that the Deathstroke film came about after Evans passed on directing the long-in-development Justice League Dark film.
No projected release date for a Deathstroke film has been announced.
