Joe Manganiello Almost Won "Man of Steel" Lead, Now Wants to Play The Punisher

Joe Manganiello Almost Won "Man of Steel" Lead, Now Wants to Play The PunisherSubmit Comment
"True Blood" actor Joe Manganiello was one of the top choices for director Zack Snyder to play Superman in "Man of Steel." In the end, the actor was forced to abandon the film due to a scheduling conflict.

Henry Cavill ended up winning the role, but in an interview with The Huffington Post, Manganiello revealed that he would love to get the chance to play The Punisher one day.

He said: "I'd love to do a version of 'The Punisher,' but it would have to be directed by Michael Mann. Like a hardcore, rated-R version of 'The Punisher.'"

Now that Marvel got the rights back to the character, there have been talks of "The Punisher" TV series and a possible new film.

He looks like a more handsome charismatic Keanu Reeve in that pic.

In a couple years he'll be glad he stayed away from that Superman flick.

Great news that Marvel got the rights to The Punisher back.

I think it would be awesome that The Punisher would be directed by Michael Mann.

Heat was a classic and Collateral was a great thiller.

Still I think The Punisher would be great as a tv series, I mean the character has been in three movies which are all reboots.

Dolph Lundgren was The Punisher in the 1989 movie version so was Thomas Jane in the 2004 movie version and also was Ray Stevenson in the 2008 movie version.

I think Marvel should make a tv series about The Punisher with maybe Michael Mann or John Hyams making the pilot episode.

As for Joe Manganiello being The Punisher, that's something I am not sure about because I haven't seen him act since Spiderman.

Besides lots of fans say he is a great actor.

Michael Mann directing Punisher? Now that's tempting but I don't think we gonna need another Punisher Movie. Something tells me jinx can also come in three.

They wouldn't have had to use a muscle suit... I don't know how much that thing cost to make, but Henry Cavill was probably a cheap buy to begin with.

mad respect for this guy, he understand that a character with such caliber should be handled by a real director that handles crime stories like Martin Scorcese, Michael Mann, Brian De Palma, Coppola, etc...

But sad to say, I only see Ray Stevenson as the Punisher. No one else.
