Thanks to the recent Deathstroke clip released by Ben Affleck, fans have brought up a new discussion. Ron Perlman’s Twitter followers are suggesting the actor to be the perfect Slade Wilson for DC Cinematic Universe.

While Ron Perlman has been fan-cast for many DC roles, fans believe his portrayal of Slade Wilson a.k.a Deathstroke would be perfect. However, it looks like the possibility is not likely.
Recently, there have been speculations that Joe Manganiello has already been approached for the mercenary role. Furthermore, it has also been claimed that he will be appearing as Deathstroke in Justice League movie as well.
