Joe Manganiello is asking for the media to dial down the drama surrounding the upcoming stand-alone Batman film

LOS ANGELES — Joe Manganiello is asking for the media to dial down the drama surrounding the upcoming stand-alone Batman film.

Manganiello is signed on to play the villain Deathstroke opposite Ben Affleck's caped crusader in "The Batman."

Affleck is writing the screenplay and was also set to direct the Warner Bros. project, but pulled back from those plans in late January. "Cloverfield" director Matt Reeves is now helming the film.

Manganiello tells Robert Irvine Magazine those in the media who suggest the project is in trouble or the script needs revision "are drama queens." He says "everyone on the cast and crew wants to make this the best movie possible."

Manganiello, who is married to Sofia Vergara, says shooting begins "soon," but not before the creative process runs its course.
