Two of the current brightest young male stars out there right now have commented on the Superman franchise recently, albeit in slightly different ways.
First up, “The Boys” and “Star Trek: Lower Decks” star Jack Quaid has revealed on X that a second season of the animated series “My Adventures With Superman” is “already in the can” and he’ll be able to tell fans more “at some point”.
He added he “couldn’t have been happier with the response” to the first season in which he took on the eponymous role of the last son of Krypton in the Adult Swim series which premiered in July.
Meanwhile “Euphoria” and “Priscilla” star Jacob Elordi has revealed in a new interview with GQ that he turned down a request to audition for Superman in an unspecified project.
Elordi tells the magazine he also doesn’t see himself in a superhero film anytime soon either:
“I’ve always been told to say a rounded answer or my agent will get mad at me. ‘Anything can happen!’ And obviously anything can happen, but at this stage in my life, I don’t see myself having any interest in that. I like to make what I would watch, and I get very restless watching those movies.
I’m supposed to finish it with: ‘Never say never!’. Well, they asked me to read for Superman. That was immediately, ‘No, thank you.’ That’s too much. That’s too dark for me.”
It has been interpreted that the actor was referring to James Gunn’s upcoming “Superman: Legacy” film which was cast earlier this year with David Corenswet ultimately taking the role.
