It finally happened. After months of eager anticipation, we finally received some details regarding Ben Affleck's solo Batman movie -- and we weren't disappointed. Not only did we learn that Deathstroke appears in the Caped Crusader's upcoming solo movie, but we now also know that he will headline the "villain heavy" affair. It's going to be a violent, bloody adventure, Bat Fans.

However, this news left some people scratching their heads, as Deathstroke's not necessarily the first name that comes up when one thinks of iconic Batman foes. That being said, we think that Slade Wilson is the perfect villain to take center stage in the first ever solo DCEU Batman movie. With that in mind, we've compiled a list of six reasons why he's the best choice for this film; check out our arguments and give us your take on the matter. Without further ado, let's get started with one of the most obvious reasons:

Batman And Deathstroke Have Never Fought In Live-Action

Variety is the spice of life; never let anyone tell you otherwise. When dealing with a character as well worn and well established as Batman, it becomes important for filmmakers to mix things up. The Dark Knight has faced off against almost all of his most iconic rogues on the silver screen at some point in his long cinematic history, and Deathstroke represents a welcome change of pace because he's never appeared in a live-action film. Audiences will have no expectations (besides what they know from Arrow and the comic book source material) and that allows the upcoming Batman solo movie to go off in incredibly new, interesting directions. We can only watch Batman fight Joker so many times before it becomes tiresome.
