We already know that Robert Pattinson is the new Batman of the DC Extended Universe. But what if Ben Affleck had decided to keep wearing the cowl and face off against Slade Wilson? A fan-made poster for a possible HBO Max film imagines Batman facing off against Deathstroke and it's enough to make fans wish for the impossible.

The poster was created by digital artist Bosslogic and has been shared on Instagram. Check it out below.

"'You're gonna lose, hero,'" the caption reads, followed by the hashtags #Batman and #deathstroke.

We're loving how Batman's suit features several scratches including the words "HA HA HA" and a question mark. Additionally, Deathstroke's mask is just as scratched, which could mean that this could have been an epic battle. Unfortunately, it's something that may never become a reality unless Affleck changes his mind and returns as the Dark Knight.

Although it seems impossible to see Affleck as Batman again, there might still be hope in seeing Manganiello reprise his role as Deathstroke. The Magic Mike star had already expressed his interest in playing the character in future DCEU films so let's keep our fingers crossed and hope Slade will be back soon.
