November 7, 2010: Joe Manganiello Negotiating to Play Superman?

Joe Manganiello "True Blood" star Joe Manganiello told fans at EyeCon this weekend that he has been in talks with Warner Bros. to play the Man of Steel in the up-coming Superman movie.

On Sunday Manganiello tweeted that negotiations were over, but whether that means he was successful or not remains to be seen.

    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!

Manganiello, who has starred in TV shows such as "One Tree Hill", "CSI: NY", and "How I Met Your Mother", also appeared in the first and third "Spider-Man" movies as Flash Thompson. The 33 year old Pennsylvania born actor definitely has the physique and height (6' 5") to pull on the blue tights and cape. Only time will tell whether or not he will win the role.
