Oh, nameless sources on the internet. Is there anything you won’t claim? Factual casting information? Naaaaw. Real, honest-to-goodness leads? Not in THIS place, friend! At least we have personalties like DC Studios’ co-head James Gunn to weed through some of the more egregious rumors; giving us the ultimate primary source.
Today’s little chestnut is the frankly outlandish rumor concerning a new face as Superman. Jacob Elordi (“The Kissing Booth,” “Euphoria“) has apparently been suggested as taking on the mantle of the Last Son of Krypton. Online ‘sources’ claim this choice came from Gunn, for one of his upcoming projects for WB’s newly launched comics-based film department.
Gunn- bless him- has clarified.
So, a couple of things there. One, the confirmation that a new Superman actor is likely. (Yes, we already knew that was the case with the heartbreaking Henry Cavill news.) Two, the script for the project isn’t close to being finished, which also refutes rumors that the script is already in circulation. Three, why the hell did he pick a mermaid emoji.
Moral of the story is…don’t believe everything you see/read/hear from one of THOSE sites. Looking at you, WGTC.
We’ll of course let you know what we hear about this and other news.
