This is fantastic news indeed.  Shot putter, Manuel Martinez (official site), is currently involved in the final week of filming for the comic book adaptation of Lorenzo Mattotti’s Estigmas (original site here; official site).  The film is directed by Adan Aliaga Vallencia (original site here).

We will finally get to see this massive bear of a man in his film debut (does his 3-second television appearance in Cachorro [Bear Cub] count?).  The film is scheduled to be released in either January or February of 2009.

I am very intrigued with the premise of Estigmas.  Here’s a brief (and somewhat poor) translated description:

The crab-producing films has decided to make a radical bid to Europe with the comic adaptation of the audacious, brilliant, and critically-acclaimed “Stigma” by Lorenzo Mattotti (drawing) and Claudio Piersanti (dash).  “Stigma” is the story of the loneliness of a man marked by a tragic fate, the emergence of some sores on his hands that he represents God and that it enclosed in a world of madness.

I definitely can’t wait to see this.  In the meantime, here are some more photos of the superbly woofy, Manuel Martinez…

    the thing about this guy is those musty sweaty pits and that package always assertive on his spandex (must be musky and sweaty too after a day of shot putting)! you inadvertently satisfy our cravings..

    For me it’s his handsome face and those unbelievable shoulders. A perfectly proportioned body doesn’t hurt.

  3. Woof! What a SEXY Spaniard! A hot beefy grizzly!

  4. […] up for my propaganda, here are photos of the ever-woofy Manuel Martinez.  I still don’t know when his film Estigmas is coming out, but here are more images from it as well as more shot put […]
