The news was revealed by Manganiello at Melbourne’s Oz Comic-Con, and BossLogic caught wind of the conversations that took place. Taking to his Instagram, he posted:
His casting is something that millions of fans lauded, and whilst we’ve not seen much of him in the role just yet, he’s expected to do some incredible things in the DCEU’s future.
