Does Joe Manganiello’s New Haircut Symbolize Deathstroke’s Return?

Does Joe Manganiello’s New Haircut Symbolize Deathstroke’s Return?

Ever since Zack Snyder announced at DC FanDome that his cut of Justice League was coming, rumors have been flying everywhere — the latest has to do with Joe Manganiello’s haircut.

No, really. Amazing what nerds spot and tie together, but that’s us, closet KGB agents just looking for a gain an advantage over other geckaphiles, drop some news on Twitter, and get all the likes.

Remember back when we thought the initial cut of Justice League was going to be amazeballs. Albeit rushed like a 15-year-old boy on Prom Night, but amazeballs nonetheless. Ben Affleck shared this:

That is Slade Wilson, the hired assassin known as Deathstroke! We freaked out. He was coming, and possibly, the Legion of Doom along with him. Come many months later, we got a post-credits scene…in a DC Comics movie, no less.

That was the reveal we wanted — Joe Manganiello in the flesh! Only, not so much thanks to the “Josstice League” and the downfall of the DCEU. We never got anything after that. Warner Bros. pissed the bed. Walter Hamada seemed to fart and fall down. And Toby Emmerich said the DCEU went away into the ether.

And now, more than three years later, we have a wig split to give us hope.

Joe Manganiello and a Hair-Raising Experience

There he is, Joe Manganiello, having a great time at the Verizon 5G League of Legends (shout out to our pals at @eGamingMatrix). Obviously, he obliterated some poor schlep who didn’t understand Joe’s got skills. But if you look carefully at his victory pose, you’ll notice the blond chop he’s sporting.

Now, look at the thumbnail to the DC post-credits scene? Doesn’t Joe Manganiello look…the same?!

Just yesterday, at the time of this post, it was confirmed by the sleuths at THR that Jared Leto will be coming back to the screen as Joker, or Mr. J the Pimp.

Jared Leto, who played classic DC villain The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad, has joined the additional photography shooting for the “Snyder Cut,” the filmmaker’s definitive version of the 2017 superhero movie he was forced to exit and he never saw through completion

Yesterday, it was that. Today, it’s Joe Manganiello’s hair while gaming. Is the boss finally getting his opportunity to bring together “a league of their own”? Remember, the HBO Max streaming event is supposed to be Zack Snyder’s unadulterated vision in four parts.

Director’s Cut, my ass. This will be an entirely new film! Man, 2021 can’t get here soon enough.
