Don't know if this is common knowledge, but heard interesting fun fact the other day. The Man of Steel role came down to 2 actors: Henry Cavill and......this guy.......








That's right, ladies and germs. Joe Manganiello....or "Alcide from True Blood" was almost Superman. Actually, the article made it seem like Manganiello was the #1 choice, but his commitment to True Blood was a conflict. Hence....Cavill........

They could use two actors. one for Wayne and one for Batman

Oh, Affleck did play the role of George Reeves aka Superman in the movie Hollywoodland. So there's a connection, sort of.

I would love to know who else were in the audition for the Batman role.

SMH god dammit hollywood

Those people that mentioned Clooney hit it right on the money. I don't need to see a smirking Batman all the time. I don't know why Bale gets so much shit as Batman. Besides the gravel voice he portrayed the right amount of intensity.

Everyone thought Ledger and Hatheway were going to be awful.

Everyone chill. Affleck will be good.

Who thought Heath Ledger would be awful as the Joker? Hatheway was awful as Catwoman, they passed on better options.

She was amazing as catwoman. She managed to take a ridiculous character and make it not cheesy. She was great.

As far as Ben...eh. He's just not inspiring/tough edged seeming. He's too baby faced/voice to be Batman.

They need someone that's skinnier, more naturally strong looking, with a strong jaw line.

Should be someone like Jon Hamm
