After hilariously putting up a photo of himself in the garb of the Man of Steel, the comedian and actor Ken Jeong has been retweeting numerous Photoshop works and hashtagged tweets to try and attract Warner Bros and get the role of Superman.
Is he joking? Well, almost.
No matter what, the #KenForKent and #KenForSuperman hashtags are teeming with greatness that fans are likely to love or scoff at. In fact, Jeong has even gone on to put up one of the numerous Photoshop works as his pinned tweet (for now that is).
In case he does manage to bag the role of Superman, it won’t be the first Warner Bros. blockbuster that Jeong would be a part of. Previously he appeared as Mr Chow in the Hangover movies, which had jointly earned over $600 million at the domestic box office. I fact, each of the first two Hangover films earned more in North America than the Justice League.
Henry Cavill’s status as the Caped Crusader is now uncertain after the recent rumors about his exit from the role.
The manager of Cavill and WB have both tried to contain things, but, there are a lot of people from the comic book fans to movie fans, who have already started believing that Cavill’s run as Superman is over.
In the wake of the rumors, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman actor Dean Cain talked about reviving the show since WB now has to find a Superman and Jeong is apparently not the only one looking to grab the opportunity.
Henry Cavill’s version of Superman, just like every element of the Snyder movies, has divided fans. While there are some loyalists on one side, there are the haters on the other. Cavill has maintained a lively and funny public image so far, and that has aided the fans who don’t like the DC films featuring him claim that given the ideal scenario, he would make a fantastic Superman.
For DC, the next tests include Aquaman on December 21st, Wonder Woman 2 on November 1, 2019, Shazam on April 5, 2019, Cyborg in 2020, and Green Lantern Corps in 2020, and also various other films which are in different developmental stages.
