The second is the rumor that due to a re-write of The Batman Joe Manganiello isn’t sure if he’ll even be in the film, offering up a less than enthusiastic “we’ll see” when questioned about it.
– Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has teased that both Sylvester Stallone and Smallville alum Michael Rosenbaum have roles that are “very important to the the Marvel Universe.”
