HOLLYWOOD – Anthony Weiner, former senator and mayoral candidate and star of the new documentary Weiner, is to play the villain Deathstroke in the new Batman movie.

Ben Affleck today revealed that Anthony Weiner would be joining him in the new stand alone Batman movie, playing the part of villain Deathstroke. Weiner spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec about the role:

Weiner spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec about the role:

Initially, Deathstroke was a name, a persona I used while sexting. I’d send women images of myself and suggestive messages like ‘now I’m doing the backstroke, now I’m doing front crawl and now I’m coming in for the Deathstroke, the Deathstroke baby. OH!’ Apparently, I got Ben’s number by mistake and he thought I was auditioning and he gave me the role.

Ben, however, told us that he’d had Anthony Weiner in mind all along when he was writing the script:

First of all, I was writing this part called Carlos Danger. I wondered where I was getting it from and then I realized, I was actually thinking of Weiner and Deathstroke was the next logical step. And he didn’t get the wrong number at all. He knew exactly what he was doing.

Batman v Deathstroke will be released in 2018.


NEW YORK – The Mayoral race was thrown into disarray today when it was revealed that candidate Anthony D. Weiner was to be the subject of a Hollywood film starring and directed by Paul Reubens, better known as Pee Wee Herman. Billed as a political sex comedy, I’ll Show You Mine will star Reuben as the sexting former Congressman who gets into all sorts of mishaps when he accidentally films himself having fun in the gym and puts it on YouTube.

Paul Reubens told the Studio Exec exclusively:

I feel very close to this story from a personal standpoint. I have had my own trouble with the law on this issue but the difference between us, is that one of us is a respected pillar of the community who should be expected to live by higher standards and the other one is running to be mayor of New York. Ha ha!  

Fred Willard will co-star as Anthony Weiner’s campaign manager Danny Kedem and Reese Witherspoon is on board to play Huma Abedin, Weiner’s long suffering wife. 

I’ll Show You Mine will be released in 2015.
