Ever since Matt Reeves took over directing duties for Ben Affleck on The Batman, fans have been wondering what would happen to Deathstroke’s role in the film. Joe Manganiello was set to play the DC Comics character in the solo Batman project, but that was before Reeves came aboard and scrapped the script Affleck wrote with DC’s Geoff Johns. It seems like Deathstroke’s part in the superhero universe isn’t dead after all.
Earlier this week, a few little birdies spoke with /Film about Warner Bros. standalone superhero film The Batman being rewritten completely from scratch. According to the site’s sources, the studio has chosen to start all over again with input from director Matt Reeves; additional sources also noted that Reeves wouldn’t even meet with prospective cast members until sometime this summer. This came on the heels of comments from a Variety reporter that Reeves is still under contract for War for the Planet of the Apes through the end of June, meaning The Batman was unlikely to even enter production until 2018.
In this age of delayed sequels, Paul Reubens has achieved something almost miraculous with Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, delivering a film that is just as joyful, hilarious and wonderfully weird as you hoped. 31 years after Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Reubens has returned to his iconic and enduring character for a new Netflix movie in which Pee-wee Herman is inspired by Magic Mike star Joe Manganiello to take his first-ever vacation.

After six seasons, we're now in the midst of 'True Blood''s final outing, bringing the epic (and ridiculous and 'Twilight'-y at times) love story of Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) to an end. We've lost many memorable characters along the way, from the villainous Russell Edgington to the Vampire Authority to Sookie's own gram. Now, we honor those we lost with a supercut of the most noteworthy and, yeah, straight-up ridiculous deaths from the first six seasons of 'True Blood.'
"True Blood" star Joe Manganiello dropped by "Conan" earlier this week, and since he's starring in the upcoming "Magic Mike 2", he took the opportunity to teach host Conan O'Brien some hot stripper moves. You can judge for yourself how well he did...
It was announced at Comic-Con 2013 that the sequel to 'Man of Steel' will feature a Batman vs. Superman fight in the vein of Frank Miller's graphic novel 'The Dark Knight Returns,' so the big question is, of course, who will play Batman?
