Joe Manganiello Likely To Play Deathstroke In Suicide Squad



Joe Manganiello was recently attached to star in the series created by the writer of American Horror story with Scream Queen.

However, now it's learned that Manganiello has exited the role, with Oliver Hudson as his replacement.

It's being reported the reason is because Joe Manganiello is clearing his schedule to play Deathstroke for David Ayer in Suicide Squad.

The info comes from The Wrap, where it looks like Manganiello's involvement isn't confirmed just yet.

Joe Manganiello was first rumored as Deathstroke about two months ago.

"Suicide Squad" has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, and Viola Davis is playing Amanda Waller.
