Joe Manganiello: Supernatural to Superman?

August 13, 2010 by  

It’s possible. According to David Bentley’s blog The Geek Files on, speculation is swirling over who will play Superman in Christopher Nolan’s 2012 update. True Blood‘s own werewolf is amidst the swirl.

Joe Manganiello joins other hot TV actors who have been mentioned to take over the Clark Kent role, including Chuck’s Zachary Levi, Friday Night Lights’s Scott Porter, Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, and Smallville’s Brandon Routh.

Joe is campaigning for the role and fans have a Facebook page to help him out.

“I’m from Pittsburgh so the Man of Steel – it’s the City of Steel, so that would go a long way back home.”

The film is slated for a December 2012 release with a script by Jonathan Nolan and David Goyer, produced by Christopher Nolan.

So what do you think? Could Joe properly don the red cape?
