Magic Mike XXL

Justice League: Spoiler! Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike XXL, above) makes his first appearance as the DC character Deathstroke in Justice League, though it's not until after the credits roll that we see him. Now Manganiello has shared a photo of himself as the assassin Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke (below). In October we heard that Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption) was in talks to write and direct a Deathstroke solo movie; we're still waiting for confirmation on the project. [Instagram]
