Joe Manganiello Says Working on Batman May Start “This Year”


Joe Manganiello, who is playing Slade Wilson/Deathstroke in the DC Extended Universe, starting with Justice League, spoke on getting ready to play the role for Ben Affleck’s Batman solo film on the Rich Eisen Show.

In the interview Manganiello spends a minute to say that the film looks like it will be ready to shoot this year. Of course he could be referring to working on the film within the next 12 months.

It may also mean he is referring to 2016, meaning this month, recently he and Armie Hammer have tweeted each other and saying they will begin working together “in a few days, ” after it became clear that Armie Hammer could have been cast in the DC Extended Universe.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
