DC supervillain Deathstroke is finally getting some long-awaited time in the spotlight, making his debut as the lead character in new animated film Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons, from Warner Bros. Animation.

The voice cast includes Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Michael Chiklis (The Shield, The Commish, American Horror Story: Freak Show) as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, alongside Sasha Alexander (Rizzoli & Isles, Shameless, NCIS) as Wilson’s wife, Adeline “Addie” Kane Wilson.

We’re thrilled to share an action-packed new look at the film featuring Slade Wilson himself. It shows Deathstroke and wife Addie launching a coordinated airborne attack on H.I.V.E’s ships, to confront The Jackal for the ultimate showdown.
