Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello addressed his recent post supporting the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League.
Last month, Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello joined several of his Justice League co-stars in expressing support for the Zack Snyder cut of the DC film on social media. For his part, Joe Manganiello shared multiple photos from the set of Zack Snyder’s Justice League taken while filming his brief appearance as Deathstroke.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Joe Manganiello clarified that he has not seen the rumored Zack Snyder cut of Justice League and he is not even aware of who started the “ReleasetheSnyderCut” hashtag on that particular day. In fact, Joe Manganiello stated that he would prefer to stop talking about the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League because he prefers not to dwell on what could have been and that his post was intended to let fans see photos he feels would never be released to the public due to the cancelation of plans for Deathstroke:
“I honestly wanted to stop talking about it. I don’t really like talking about things that didn’t happen. I have a ton of photos from the set photographer that were never going to be released that were sitting on my computer. One day I thought, if I don’t put them out now they’re never going to come out. I might as well get them out to the public.”
Joe Manganiello was originally set to portray Deathstroke as the primary antagonist in Ben Affleck’s Batman film. However, Ben Affleck eventually stepped away from the director’s chair and the role altogether, leading to Matt Reeves taking over the project and developing a new story that did not involve Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke.
Here is the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
