Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Deathstroke first appeared in Teen Titans #2 in 1980. Slade Wilson (as his family knows him) is an assassin and a mercenary, and while he's more often found in the Green Arrow's rogue's gallery – and has turned up on the DC TV series – he has crossed Batman's path several times. Their memorable first meeting was in a 1991 Deathstroke comic story arc titled City Of Assassins, where Deathstroke beat the Dark Knight to a pulp.
There's no indication yet as to whether Affleck's video means Deathstroke will be introduced in the Justice League movie before heading to the solo Batman outing, so we'll have to wait and see on that front. That film, directed by Zack Snyder, will be with us on November 17 next year.
