Ben Affleck Goes Into Detail About Deathstroke Villain Plan For His Cancelled Batman Movie

Ben Affleck discusses what his Deathstroke villain plan was going to be for the cancelled Batman movie. With the DCEU coming to an end, Affleck is returning one last time as the Dark Knight in The Flash movie. While Affleck is finishing his time as Batman, the actor was supposed to have his own movie that he was set to direct. Titled The Batman, Affleck ended up stepping away from the project as Matt Reeves took over and retooled it into a reboot for Robert Pattinson.
Even though Affleck never got to star in his own film, the actor recently talked more about the canceled Batman movie. At this year's SnyderCon (via The Direct,) Affleck took part in the Full Circle event with Zack Snyder, where he got asked by a fan about his The Batman project. The question was specifically about how Affleck was looking at using Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke, and he shared the following:
There were a number of them that I was kind of exploring. And, the plans were to make interesting, nuanced, complex characters, in particular to the character you mentioned. I kind of feel like either you do - I'm just going to get into my own preference here - but either you do a kind of massive one villain that is so formidable you just can't imagine how your protagonist is going to be able to overcome it. Or you have to really sort of populate kind of, you know, Injustice - these big group villains - where you have to get all these different characters.
So I was at the time really trying to hone in and focus on that character and get into depth and detail about it to make him seem as impressive as I felt there was the opportunity to do. That's the only detail I have for you. He’s a great villain because—I just had an instinctive feeling that he would match up with him well. You know, I’m a big admirer of that character as well, especially in the New 52 the way that they did Deathstroke, and I thought that it could work.
