Gareth Evans (The Raid) To Direct Standalone Deathstroke Movie

Gareth Evans, known mostly for directing the excellent action films The Raid and The Raid 2: Berandal will be directing the upcoming Deathstroke film according to The Wrap.

Evans was previously contacted by Warner Bros. to direct Justice League Dark but turned it down. Deathstroke was also supposed to be the main villain of Ben Affleck’s Batman movie. However Afflek is no longer in the directing chair and it’s been handed to Matt Reeves who is going with a completely different script.

Joe Mangianello, who was meant to play Deathstroke in Batman will be reprising his role here. Apart from that, details are scant at the moment and we don’t know much about the film but there’s doubt with Evans’ experience in directing the Raid, there will be plenty of amazing action scenes in the upcoming Deathstroke film.
