Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello reveals that Ben Affleck’s The Batman movie featured Batgirl and a fight between her and Slade Wilson.
Ben affleck’s The batman included a fight between Batgirl and Deathstroke, according to Joe Manganiello. After joining the DC Extended Universe as Zack Snyder’s Batman, a plan was developed for Ben Affleck to tackle a solo movie. I was prepared to write, direct, produce and star The batman, but Affleck eventually walked away from the movie. Even though there is great interest in the Matt Reeves remake with Robert Pattinson, many fans still wish that Affleck The batman it could have happened.
The full scope of Affleck’s plans to The batman It has not been disclosed, but various pieces of information have emerged over the years. The most publicized aspect of his film was the inclusion of Slade Wilson, also known as Deathstroke, as the main villain. Joe Manganiello’s performance debuted in League of Justice, and now Zack Snyder’s Justice League showed the original scene he was in. Deathstroke’s meeting with Lex Luthor saw Slade learn that Bruce Wayne is Batman to set up a story in which the skilled mercenary destroys Bruce’s life. It turns out that Deathstroke would have fought a member of the Bat-Family as well.
Joe Manganiello recently appeared in the Comic book nation podcast and discussed plans for Ben Affleck’s The batman. For the first time, Manganiello revealed that Batgirl was scheduled to appear in the film. This would have resulted in Deathstroke fighting Batgirl while trying to help Batman.
There was a great confrontation. I think … Batgirl steps in to try to help Bruce because Deathstroke is so fast that he can anticipate Bruce’s movements. And there was a big fight in Gotham City where Batman is like, you know, completely freaked out because he realizes that he has met someone who can take him. And that leads to this climactic grand battle through the streets of Gotham City in the end.
The idea of Batgirl appearing in The batman is a fascinating new fact about the plans of Affleck and the DCEU. Affleck never teased that other members of the Bat-Family would appear in his film. His Batman has already lost a partner, with Joker killing Robin in the past, so the inclusion of Batgirl could have been a way for Bruce to reflect on his past mistakes. It is also worth noting that while a Bat girl film is in development, WB and DC didn’t start work on that project until after Affleck stepped down as director and writer for The batman. This could indicate that the movie only began to unfold after she was no longer linked to The batmanhistory of.
That being said, Batgirl’s appearance in The batman could have helped shape Zack Snyder’s future DCEU movies. Manganiello doesn’t specify which version of Batgirl would appear, but Barbara Gordon is the best known person to hold the title. Snyder recently revealed that Barbara Gordon would be the Gotham commissioner in the epilogue of Justice league 3. Her appearance as Batgirl in The batman It could have given the public a chance to see her as a different kind of crime fighter. Unfortunately, Affleck’s version of The batman It’s not happening, so Batgirl’s DCEU debut and a fight with Destroke will have to wait.
