Will This Nude Wolfman Be The Next Man Of Steel?

Easy girls.... simmer down now. We all know just how much you guys love Joe Manganiello, aka Alcide from True Blood fame. You love him for what a great actor he is and how wonderful he delivers his lines... oh, fuck it... lets be real. You guys love ole Alcide because he has a stomach like a washboard and the face of an angel. A ruggishly hairy angel... but an angel none the less. Well, the Internet rumor mill is churning and the Wolfman is being mentioned for the role of Kal-El himself in Zack Snyder's reboot of the Superman franchise. Jon Hamm of Mad Men has long been rumored to be what Snyder and producer Chris "The Dark Knight" Nolan are looking for in the new Superman... and actor who is 35-40 years old and can be convincing in their vision of the franchise. Manganiello is certainly in that wheelhouse, and he is in top physical condition (right KMG and the rest of you ladies out there???), so lets see how it goes. You know how the Internet works. On his Twitter, Manganiello had this to say:

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!!!
This is clearly a denial, but one that is peppered with a specific denial. He may not be negotiating to play the role just yet... but that does not mean he is not discussing the actual role. He is just not up to the specific point where they are talking money. I personally love the idea of Joe the Wolf as Superman, and that's where I stand on the topic. How bout you guys? What do you think about True Blood's most honorable wolf taking over in the Big Red Cape? Let us know in the comment section below. Oh, and just to jog your memory (especially you ladies), here is one more picture of Joey Abs himself.... now, what say you ladies??? Yea or Nay?


  1. No celebrity who used to be on One Tree Hill should ever be Superman. Ever!!

  2. Of all the flaws in the newer Superman film ('Superman Returns' was it?) Brandon Routh was not one of him.

    He was a fresh young face but also kinda embodied Christopher Reeve in an odd way. He'd still be #1 on my list of possible actors for the new film. Even when is see Routh in some more recent films I'm like "This guy IS Superman!"

    I like the idea of a John Hamm 'Superman' though. I'm not so sure about this guy, however.

  3. Routh was great... and I did not mind Superman Returns at all... but to be honest, Routh has about as much of a chance of getting the role of Superman in the re-boot as Jeff Bond does. Which is no chance at all. Now if they considered me, I do not think they would be able to ignore my sexy body!!!

  4. well i believe joe would be amazing as superman.. i am sorry but how can you go wrong with some one who stands 6'5"
