Deathstroke is the definition of one note.

This movie needs a bit of nuance. And intelligence. And motivations beyond ‘me hate Batman, so me smash Batman’.
Well, Deathstroke isn't a straight up brawler. At least...he shouldn't be. If that's how he ends up being portrayed if that's who they end up going with, then the writers TRULY don't understand the character. Not only is he a physical powerhouse, he's also a tactical genius. Hell, in alot of ways, he's extremely similar to Batman except for Slade's super soldier serum.

You know, if they really did want to do two hours of punch and kick, they really should be doing a Batgirl movie instead. And by that I obviously mean the best Batgirl, Cassandra Cain. Get the director of John Wick. Storytelling via violence.

Deathstroke is a one note villain who wouldn’t provide the movie with a compelling or complex enough character for Batman to be pitted against.

Check out Deathstroke Rebirth vol 1. Its been nominated for an eisner award. Written by Priest who is now gonna write JL.

Deathstroke is the farthest thing from a one note character, he is a very interesting and complex character.

And he will surely make for an interesting and complex villain in the Nightwing solo film!

He is definitely not my first choice for a Bat solo and I have a lot of faith and excitement in Reeves film, but I just cant accept that Deathstroke is a one dimensional character. :P

Isn't Deathstroke meant to be a tactical and strategic genius? I would love the idea of Deathstroke being hired by one of Batman's more cerebral villains, testing Batman physically and intellectually, trying to break him down on all levels. A true test of the World's Greatest Detective. Either Nygma or Hugo Strange would fit the bill perfectly. Hugo Strange trying to destroy Batman and turn the city against him like in Prey, or Riddler hires Deathstroke to assassinate people and offers riddles for the next targets


But even if it were just Deathstroke, maybe hired by the mob (Black Mask?), it still has potential to make for a great story. Two men matching wits and brawn throughout the city, one trying to kill the other. Like The Most Dangerous Game in Gotham City. Or similar to Anton Chigurh hunting Llewellyn Moss in No Country For Old Men, with Gordon playing a role similar to Tommy Lee Jones. But I'd like to see some mystery and Batman having to use his intellect. A Mystery/Thriller detective story could really help it to stand apart from your standard superhero films

Lmao seriously. That's where he belongs. He's Nightwing's nemesis, why waste him in a Batman movie which would tread a lot of the same ground?

Red Hood or Hush for The Batman

The problem is not so much that Deathstroke is a dumb villain ( he's not ), as that he lacks a real core theme relevant to Batman, around which you could make a good Batman story. You could kludge together something that would work, but it'd largely by stealing Bane's schtick and pasting it on Deathstroke.

It doesn't help that, most times WB types have talked about Deathstroke in a Batman context, the only thing they ever emphasize he's "He's a kickass warrior, it'd totally be a badass fight". The new Batman movies doesn't need "badass", it needs good plot and good characterization.

LOL at calling Deathstroke one note and then throwing names like Red Hood( the guy famous for dying and then coming back and then doing nothing ever since) or Court of Owls(whose every story has them getting killed in mass numbers after they're built up to be all powerful) or Hush( utterly stupid character).

Deathstroke isn't one-note. However, I'd rather see a proper Batman villain used. By all means use Deathstroke in Suicide Squad or Nightwing. A much more appropriate fit.

Y'all I really think this is gonna turn out to be a pointless argument. Reeves said he's starting from the ground up, so I can't imagine he's gonna retain the villain from Affleck's story. It sounds like the last thing he wants to make is a brawler movie. Hasn't he talked several times about exploring the detective side of things?

We don't know how far into the script Reeves is, so there's no way to be sure.
