Joe Manganiello Says Viewers Should Be Excited For The Batman

The Batman star Joe Manganiello, who is slated to play Deathstroke in the film, got candid about the solo DC superhero movie.

Slated to act opposite film lead and director Ben Affleck, Manganiello explained why he thinks the movie will be one of the best entries in the DC Cinematic Universe. Praising Affleck’s directing abilities, the actor noted that his previous project Argo garnered him an Academy Award and suggested that the writing for The Batman is comparable to that for that film:

“When I met Ben we sat down and we talked about, you know, the role,” Manganiello said. “We talked about the movie. His take is a fresh take but I think the audience is going to be surprised. Because it’s a road that no one’s really gone down that’s completely integral to, you know, who Batman is. And I think it’s gonna be refreshing but at the same time completely familiar. But it’s going to take this franchise in a direction that I think A LOT of people are going to be really happy about. It’s going to be gritty and action packed and cerebral and all of those elements that people love about Batman.”

The actor also had much praise for the multiple Oscar-winning Argo director/Good Will Hunting screenwriter.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
