Joe Manganiello has been active on social media since Warner Bros. revealed him as Deathstroke for DCEU’s untitled Batman movie. While fans have been sharing positive opinions on the casting, thus the co-creator of Slade Wilson also decided to pitch in his perspective.
After Joe Manganiello shared pictures of his “research” on Deathstroke, he uploaded a screenshot of New Teen Titans #2 cover on Twitter. The actor wrote that “In honor of National Comic Book Day,” he wanted to give fans a “look at the first appearance” at Deathstroke from the comic book.
Surprisingly, Deathstroke co-creator Marv Wolfman decided to tweet his opinion about Joe Manganiello. The comic book writer wrote, “I can’t wait to see what [Joe Manganiello] you do with our baby.”
Wolfman proudly wrote that he was “one of Deathstroke’s comic book daddies back in 1980.” Fans can check out his tweet below.
Over the years, Wolfman has been credited for creating or co-creating many DC characters. But the comic book writer is known for co-creating Jonny Double, Starfire, Raven, Cyborg, Deathstroke and Jericho along with Len Wein and George Perez.
DC fans appreciate Wolfman for writing The New Teen Titans. The writer was also Editor-in-Chief at Marvel. During his time, he was known for writing horror books like Tomb of Dracula.
Joe Manganiello revealed that he is reading Marv Wolfman’s Deathstroke the Terminator. The images shared by the actor served as hints to the plot in the untitled Batman movie.
Currently, it is unknown weather Wolfman is working with Warner Bros. on the untitled Batman movie. However, the Eisner Hall of Fame writer has been associated more with television and animation since 1990. So it’s likely he could be part of the cinematic universe.
