Taking on the role of an iconic comic book character is always a huge undertaking, especially when a certain hero or villain is relatively unexplored on the silver screen. With that in mind, Joe Manganiello has an enormous task ahead of him with regards to tackling the part of Slade Wilson a.k.a Deathstroke in the upcoming solo Batman movie. Not only does he have to inhabit the legendary mercenary's imposing physicality, but he also has to capture the inherent, ruthless spirit of the character. Luckily for all of us, based upon a new tweet that Manganiello recently posted, it seems that he's taking the responsibility quite seriously. Check it out below to see his research materials for yourself.

It's a seemingly innocent tweet, but there's a wealth of information to be gleaned. We've gone through the finer details of the picture with a fine-toothed comb and come up with five specific aspects of Deathstroke, and the solo Batman movie that will undoubtedly drive Bat fans wild. Without further ado, let's get the ball rolling with one of the most obvious and instantly noticeable aspects of this photo...

Deathstroke

Slade Wilson Will Definitely Look Like His Comic Book Counterpart

We already know that Slade Wilson's armor will be incredibly faithful to the way it appears in the comics. That much became obvious when Ben Affleck leaked the first footage of the character. Now it also seems that the man under the mask will look very familiar to fans of the source material. Joe Manganiello's photo featured several unmasked Deathstroke action figures, which seemingly indicates that the guy genuinely wants to look the part in the film. From the goatee to the white hair, these are fundamental aspects of the character's look that have remained consistent for years. The photo he posted appears to have even been taken in a bathroom (based on the look of the counter), so perhaps he gave himself the signature Deathstroke look right before posting the picture to Twitter. We will have to wait and see.
