BATMAN Contender Joe Manganiello Wants To Star In The FIGHT CLUB Of Superhero Movies
The True Blood actor narrowly missed out on playing Superman in Man Of Steel, and is now said to be one of the names on WB's radar to play the new Batman. One thing is for sure, he's definitely keen to play a superhero of some description..but only if he can bring something new to the genre.
Whether Joe Manganiello ends up donning the cape and cowl as Warner Bros. new Batman or not, it would seem that there is definitely a superhero movie in his future. The True Blood actor has spoken on a few occasions about missing out on playing Supes in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel but he's yet to comment on the rumors of his possible involvement in its sequel -- and that'll continue for a while as he doesn't spill any details to MTV here either! He does, however, reveal that if and when he does play a comic book character he'd like it to be in something subversive and original..like David Fincher's Fight Club. "I want to do something that's a real deconstruction of the genre," Manganiello tells MTV News. "There's so many superhero projects out there that it's almost like they're becoming normal, so I want to do one that just flips it on its head and makes it crazy. I want to make the 'Fight Club' of superhero movies." Click on the link below to watch the video over at MTV (US only).
