Vampires to Blame for British Superman
It had been long rumored that Joe Manganiello would take the lead role in the upcoming Zack Snyder Superman reboot, a role that went to British star of The Tudors Henry Cavill, but it has finally been revealed why Manganiello didn’t get the part.
When asked PaleyFest why he never took the role, the True Blood star had this to say:
At the end of the day they wanted me to screen test and they actually asked for my measurements for the suit and everything…Their shoot date switched and it would have taken up 11 weeks out of my True Blood ‘ schedule. At the end of the day, we couldn’t get the schedule to work so that I could go off and screen test. So, regrettably, I never go to screen test, I never got to put the suit on.
As I’m not familiar with either actor, only time will tell if Snyder made the right decision.
