Since the news broke everyone has been going Deathstroke happy! Everything from what version of the costume they are going to use, to where the footage is being shot and how/what role is he going to play in the upcoming Batman solo film.  While that still has yet to be confirmed, we decided to go with the biggest discussion:  Who is under the mask?  Here is our top 5 list of who we think could play Deathstroke the Terminator in the DC live action universe! (PS. you may have to look some of them up!)

It’s official: Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke the Terminator, is joining DC’s evergrowing cinematic universe – and his movie design appears to be inspired by his costume in Batman: Arkham Origins. Who has DC and WB cast for the role? We have no idea, but we do know we’re seriously excited to see DC’s deadly mercenary on the big screen! We strongly encourage reading some of Slade’s stories – especially the Judas Contract and The Trial of the Terminator, which are in Tales of the Teen Titans – but for now, here are a few things everyone should know about Deathstroke.

Oh, and just so you know, Deathstroke – who was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez – made his debut in 1980 (New Teen Titans #2); Deadpool – who was created by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza – made his debut in 1991 (The New Mutants #98).

DC Rebirth has done an amazing job re-energizing my interest in the publisher’s fictional universe. The DC Rebirth Special was a brilliant way to begin the new direction and it’s so obvious that DC has a clear focus with each of these titles: celebrate what people love about these characters and teams. Go back to the basics, and then do something fresh with it. Don’t change things just for the sake of changing them. Instead, embrace the positive and run with it! So far, each and every title has managed to capture my interest; some more than others, obviously, but the fact that all of the titles have me wanting to see more proves that the publisher really has given this new direction everything they’ve got. Okay, I could go on and on about why I think DC Rebirth is a step in the right direction (you can read a coworker’s editorial about that here), but that’s not why you’re here. You’re here because you want to see what DC has to offer on this week’s new comic book day! So grab a drink, get comfortable, and prepare to get excited for brand new DC Rebirth issues!

A few weeks ago, I attended the DC Universe: Rebirth Retailer Roadshow in New York. Dan Didio and Jim Lee’s presentation really won me over, and no, I’m not saying that because I’m an employee of Midtown Comics and my job relies on people still wanting to buy comics. Look, if I didn’t enjoy the event, I wouldn’t write about it – it’s that simple. But here I am, writing about DC Rebirth because I’m legitimately excited about it. And you know what? I think you should be excited, too. And no, it’s not a reboot.

WB and DC are still in the early stages of crafting their own cinematic universe. At the time of this writing, there are only two films in the shared universe (Man of SteelBatman v Superman) and the third film, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, is just months away. Beyond that, several movies have been announced all the way through 2020, but obviously, plans can change. Now, it’s looking like one of the stars of Suicide Squad could get her very own movie… and she could be sharing the spotlight with some friends!
