During a recent celebration event for Sony Pictures upcoming Smurfs: The Lost Village, actor Joe Manganiello talk about his upcoming role in the DCEU and him and Ben Affleck going "all-in" on The Batman movie.
When asked about what was the most fun part about playing the iconic antihero, Manganiello responded.
‘Growing up an avid comic book fan, and then there were a lot of superhero roles, and supervillain roles, that came my way that I said no to, or wasn’t allowed to do, because of other commitments. So it’s just really exciting to think that this is the one.’
‘I’m glad everybody’s happy,” he said about positive fan reaction to his casting. “I’m just gonna put my head down and just really show up as prepared as any supervillain ever has.’
