Was Joe Manganiello really in talks to play Deathstroke, or any other character in Suicide Squad? Find out after the jump as the True Blood actor responds to recent rumors that he's been replaced.
I wonder if he was up for Bizzaro, Darkseid or Doomsday. Either of those would be awesome
Oh, agreed! He did almost have Superman and Batman roles. So Bizzaro makes sense. I can easily picture him playing Darkseid through mo-cap. Or at least his voice. I'm hoping Darkseid and Doomsday are actors with make-up and as much practical effects as possible only enhanced by cgi. And not full-on cgi monsters, I feel like some of the performance can be lost along the way through full-on cgi. Manganiello is a good actor though and I feel he'd be wasted on a role like Doomsday that would only have about 2 lines and a million roars and laughs. Personally I'd get someone like Stephen Lang or Viggo Mortensen to play Deathstroke.
