A brand new image of Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke, from the upcoming HBO Max release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League was dropped online earlier today as part of a support campaign for The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. But this isn’t the look you may remember from the end credit scene of the Whedon version.
In this awesome black & white still, Manganiello is rocking the armor, sword, and eye patch, but he’s also sporting a pretty epic mohawk. Check out the image below.

Manganiello recently posted a pic of himself with a blue mohawk, prompting people to assume he had finished filming his scenes for the film, but it looks like this may have been a tease for his new look. It was also recently revealed by Zack Snyder that he was only filming four minutes of additional footage for his version of Justice League, some of which are these new Deathstroke scenes.
Back in October, the Deathstoke actor told Collider that there was a different version of that after-credits scene he hoped would be restored for the Snyder Cut of Justice League:
“On my social media, I talked about [how] there was an original end credits sequence that was altered for the release of Justice League. Once Batman was cancelled, they altered that scene. So, here you go, but I wrote about that on my social media. There’s an original scene that will be restored to what it was originally.”
However, it looks like he’s getting more than just an alternate end-credit scene with these new scenes being filmed, and I’m really pumped about it!
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is set to release sometime in 2021, exclusively on HBO Max!
