Joe Manganiello is appearing at True Blood convention EyeCon this weekend, and per reports from fans at the convention, he revealed that he is in talks with Warner Bros. to play the Man of Steel in the upcoming Superman reboot. Others rumored to be up for the role are Brendan Routh who played Clark Kent in Superman Returns and Tom Welling who has played the role on Smallville for 10 seasons. The feature will be directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300) and produced by Chris Nolan and Emma Thomas (Batman franchise reboot).
“Just to be clear… as of today, I am not “negotiating” to play SuperMan …but keep your fingers crossed and thanks for the wishful thinking!”
This likely means he’s still on the list, but has not (yet) been offered the role.
What do you think, would Joe make a good Superman during his time off from playing Alcide on True Blood?
