Ben Affleck may have just dropped a huge hint regarding a fan favorite we could be seeing join the DC cinematic universe very soon!

The Batman actor sent fans into a frenzy on Monday (Aug. 29) when he uploaded footage to his Instagram featuring what appears to be the character Deathstroke.

Presented without comment, the short clip features the notorious assassin walking down a large tunnel and toward the camera. There’s no telling where the footage could be from, but many are thinking DC could be gearing up to introduce the character in Justice League.

In the comics, Deathstroke is a mercenary and assassin who gains his superpowers while serving as his alter ego, Slade Wilson, in the U.S. Army. While there, Wilson is chosen for a secret experiment in an attempt to create meta super human soldiers.

The superhuman is an enemy of both the Green Arrow (we’ve seen a variation of Deathstroke played by Manu Bennett on The CW’s Arrow) as well as Batman, so it’ll be interesting to see if we do in fact end up seeing Deathstroke face off against the Caped Crusader on the big screen!
