Here's why 
1. He's an awesome character  
2. They could have appearances by anyone from the DC universe because Slade has pretty much worked with or fought against everyone 
3. It'd be an action driven movie  
There are many more reasons it'd be great those were just the ones off the top of my head

It could be good, but I'm not sure they'd make a film based on a villain, especially since there are stil a number of high profile heroes without a film yet.  Maybe they could introduce him in another film first, and then make a spin-off from there (maybe from the Suicide Squad thing, if it ever gets made).
 
If this does happen, expect non comic fans to start complaining that he's a Deadpool rip-off.

@brc2000: Thats assuming the deadpool movie ever gets made 
#4 Posted by brc2000 (1679 posts) - - Show Bio

Yup. Maybe the newest MvC game might also help spread awareness of the character, as those games are generally popular non comic fans (I know Deathstroke was in MK vs DCU, but that doesn't quite have as much popularity). Plus you see a lot of Deadpools at conventions.

Honestly I'd rather see a Deathstroke movie than a Deadpool movie

Same here.

Yes!! 
I've been wanting this ever since the animated "Judas Contract" movie was announced and then put on hold... 
 
As long as Marv Wolfman is part of the writing team, a live-action movie would be awesome.

If in the right hands a Deathstroke movie could be pretty damn badass.

#9 Posted by joshmightbe (24876 posts) - - Show Bio

He's a better character than most of the hollywood action heroes anyway 

#10 Posted by Epsilon5 (58 posts) - - Show Bio

He's not completely a villain either, more of an anti-hero. So he could totally have a successful movie of his own.

I think a Deathstroke movie would be a great idea. They could have over the top action. I would definitly go see it.

You know what I'd like more than a Deathstroke movie?  A TEEN TITANS movie.

DS movie... I want to see that!!! But they better don't cast Clooney as Slade.. :D

#18 Posted by digimod (239 posts) - - Show Bio

Probably the only way you'll ever see Deathstroke in a film is as a villain/antagonist and even then he probably wouldn't be the primary villain of the film.  It's a stretch to say that he is an anti-hero which is the only way he would be considered as the primary character.

Are we talking about an origin film or just a film with a really good plot.

#20 Posted by joshmightbe (24876 posts) - - Show Bio
@KZR: Just a movie with a good plot
#21 Posted by U R Sofa King We Todd Did (1124 posts) - - Show Bio

this movie would be so far beyond good and not only would it attract comic readers (and teen titans watchers) but non-readers would love it as well.

@Mikepool: It would make more sense for a Deathstroke movie to come before Deadpool cause Wade is basically a parody of Slade

Dude Deadpool is not like Deathstroke and i am sure that if Deathstroke gets his own movie it willl be good for him and Deadpool.
Casting ideas.
Robert Patrick or Tim Roth or Stephen Lang
I actually think taht Patrick and Roth are better options that Lang

@DeathpooltheT1000: Deadpool was originally created as a parody of Deathstroke its not an opinion its an actual stated fact sure he's different now but that doesn't change the facts

Everybody know that, but Deadpool and Deathstroke have evolved, they are not the same style of character anymore.

I agree! Action, fighting scenes would be wicked! This is one of the things i am most excited about with the DC relaunch. (that Slade will continue to grow and expand to the point a movie might happen in a few years)

@DeathpooltheT1000: In all fairness, the character did have a name before Ryan Reynolds.
 
But he is just WAY too corny for me to take him seriously.

I think it could be a real good movie it will talk about his origins mercenary life,and will have a good plot

#42 Posted by Bluefox170 (382 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd probably watch it at least 10 times in the theatre itself.

#43 Posted by jobbernos (1420 posts) - - Show Bio

a deathstroke movie would sell and it would be awesome.

#44 Posted by colonyofcells (2038 posts) - - Show Bio

Even the last Bourne Legacy movie was using super powers both for the heroes and the villains, so there is already lots of competition out there bec. DC was too slow in making movies.

#45 Posted by DeathpooltheT1000 (10148 posts) - - Show Bio

DC needs to learn how to use their tv projects to make movies. Deathstroke is part of Arrow and Teen Titans, so people actually has an idea of who he is.

And here I thought I was the only one with that casting choice

#49 Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude (2633 posts) - - Show Bio

@Ravager4: I always thought it was obvious. Sure he was a great Ra's al Ghul, but given how well he handled swords in that movie and lightsabers in Star Wars, his action work in Taken, The Grey, Taken 2, and The A-Team, he's got more than what it takes to play Slade Wilson.

#50 Posted by joshmightbe (24876 posts) - - Show Bio

@Smart_Dork_Dude: And Liam Neeson would get people in theaters on name recognition alone on top of being a great choice for the role
