Ever wonder what Joe Manganiello would look like in a cape?

The 34-year-old True Blood actor is being considered for the role of Superman, the L.A. Times reports.

Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux on the hit HBO drama, recently spoke to Extra about potentially playing the Man of Steel on the big screen.

"It's out there in the ether. We'll see," he said. "I would be honored. I love Zack Snyder and I love Christopher Nolan. I'm a huge fan of both of them."
