    I was so excited and then remembered that's a DC movie. Is Black Manta actually black? I think maybe they should just call him Manta.

    You could ask the same of Black Panther, really.

    Apparently Black Panther the character predates the Black Panther Party by a couple of months, but both were created in the same year.

    But that just makes it worse. His name's redundant unless the black specifically refers to his race.

    I saw a pic that I'm guessing is from Justice League
    Superman totally had the mullet and a "I've had the week off" beard.
    It's a Photoshop that's been going around, its a fake

    I just found that interesting, since I was curious if there was any connection between the character's name and the political movement.

    Yeah I think the Black Panther thing is to specify that he's the coolest type of panther.

    the black panther (aka melanistic black jaguar) is inDEED the coolest kind of panther

    runner-up goes to the melanistic black leopard

    Black Panther does somehow place less emphasis on the "black" since it IS the common nomenclature for a particular animal

    Black Manta, afaik, is not the same case for mantas, which does make it a lot more awkward

    Leopards and jaguars are both panthers, I think, so they'd both qualify

    That's based on me trying to remember a ZooBooks I read twenty-five years ago

    well yes but if you're arguing which is the COOLER panther

    then it's the jaguars for sure

    Black Manta wasn't revealed to be black until 10 years after his first appearance. Granted, when that was revealed, they did explicitly say he chose the name Black Manta because he's black, but that was comics in 1977 and by a different writer than who created him.

    Hell, I honestly didn't even know black manta was a person under that armor until young justice was a show. He was always just the helmet in every other instance I'd seen him so I thought black was just a reference to the suit for a long time

    I always thought he was like an undersea monster or an alien robot or something.

    I know that's from Justice League but I can hope

    Deathstroke is a greeeeeaaaaaat choice. I was wondering how they'd dodge the Joker bullet. You know who else would have had (expensive) potential? Deadshot.

    I mean think about it

    Sadly this isn't confirmed to be the Batman villain, its from the Justice League set.

    But yeah he would be a fantastic choice, as would Deadshot.

    Really any of the many villains that haven't been used yet/recently would be fun. Deathstroke, Deadshot, Penguin, Riddler, Court of Owls, etc.

    I'd like to see a Riddler movie with some notable named goons, I think. Riddler isn't a fighting sort, but he's definitely got enough money to bankroll Deathstroke or Deadshot.

    Especially if we've seen both of them in movies before, and we already know their whole deal.

    Shit, I thought the Joker bullet had been dodged. Deathstroke doesn't fucking make sense for a Justice League villain! Wonder Woman will just punch him in half

    Eh, he could be hired to keep Batman busy in the film or something.

    They could also be doing a smart thing (which means they won't) and introducing Deathstroke as a stone cold badass who Batman pisses off setting up the Batman solo flick where Deathstroke comes calling.

    maybe that clip is his entire appearance

    he walks up to Batman like that and then Wonder Woman lands right next to Batman and Deathstroke is just like "yeah okay bye" and walks away

    Weren't there some rumours not too long ago about Affleck's Batman movie being a claustrophobic Raid-esque kinda movie?

    I would absolutely watch a movie in which Bruce and Slade's conflict somehow gets them trapped together in crazypants Arkham or something like that.

    This is a reminder to read Deathstroke's current comic, which is super good and also bringing him back from CONFLICTED ANTI-HERO to supreme selfish asshole assassin as he should be

    I bet you there's a super intransigent marketing exec at Warner who just flat out refuses to countenance the idea of anyone but the Joker in the Battfleck movie and keeps pointing at a chart that says he's the best known villain.

    There's speculation that Joe Manganiello is playing Deathstroke, as he is in London, where the film is being made, is sporting a very Slade Wilson look with a high and tight military cut and goatee and was just followed by Zack Snyder on Twitter.

    The Wrap is reporting, based on a source with "knowledge of the situation" that Deathstroke is in fact the villain for Affleck's Batman film, not Justice League.

    the fact that gonzales got this "scoop" only after Affleck posted the video online, rather than hinting at literally anything beforehand, should warn you of it's authenticity immediately

    that's not to say Deathstroke won't show up in the solo Batman flick, but all the sites now citing it as "confirmed" due to a report from the worst rumormonger in the game is pretty frustrating
