Manganiello is on the superhero fast track. Ever since being overlooked for the role of Superman in Man of Steel, the actor has been telling everyone who will listen that he still wants to play a hero, even stating that he’s going after the Batman role in the reboot.
Though I don’t think he has much talent in acting, he would make an admirable Caped Crusader for a few reasons. Like a couple other choices on the list, he would draw in the female crowd, no doubt about that. But, aside from that, there’s a few other reasons that I want to see Joe go from werewolf to bat.
Out of all the actors on this list, I think Joe is the most well equipped in the physicality department to play the part. This guy is huge. Trust me, I’ve interviewed him in person before and he’s one big motherfu**er. Plus, he has the advantage of already being in the good books with Warner Bros. They almost chose him for Man Of Steel, so they must have seen something in him, right?
Once again, a bit of an underdog, but I still firmly believe that Mr. Cooper has the chops to pull it off. Ever since I saw The Devil’s Double I’ve been sold on Dominic Cooper‘s career. That being said, the dashing British actor is still in the process of making a name for himself and many would label him an unproven talent.
Sure, it would be a risk to put Cooper in the role, but like I said, I’m a big fan of this guy, and believe he could do justice to almost any role, including Batman.
If you haven’t seen The Devil’s Double yet, check out the trailer below. Cooper’s fierce tour de force performance is awe inspiring.
