The latest man to don the cowl as DC’s Caped Crusader, Ben Affleck looks like he’s all-in to try and get the DC Cinematic Universe on track, even doing some early promotional work on social media. Affleck revealed on Twitter what looks to be on-set footage of one of the major characters who will be appearing in the upcoming Justice League film.

That would be Deathstroke the Terminator, one of DC’s deadliest mercenaries, who has played both sides of the good guy/bad guy line depending on who’s paying him that day (and who was ruthlessly parodied by Marvel in a character that just recently had his own very successful movie, Deadpool). It seems likely that he’d be introduced as a villain for Justice League, and if Affleck felt he warranted mention, he’s probably someone we should pay attention to going forward. So, are we excited for Justice League yet?
