‘True Blood’ actor triggers ‘Superman’ casting rumor
HollywoodNews.com: As Zack Snyder rolls his “Superman” into preproduction, gossip has been swirling as to who will play the man in blue tights.
“True Blood” actor Joe Manganiello aka Alcide on “True Blood” spilled the beans at a convention in Orlando, Florida that he was in talks with Snyder for the title role.
Then in hindsight, Manganiello feared he said too much. Per Vulture who was reading a “True Blood” fansite, the werewolf actor took to Twitter and wrote, “Just to be clear..as of today, I am not ‘negotiating’ to play SuperMan.”
Armie Hammer of “Social Network” fame recently revealed that he was turned down for the role as Snyder was looking for a thirtysomething Man of Steel.
