Former Superman Dean Cain Said He’d Have Knocked Out Eggboy Who Egged Australian Senator

Henry Cavill Dean Cain SupermanSuperman actor Dean Cain isn’t holding back after witnessing a video with a young protester who egged an Australian politician.

Superman has been featured in many forms over the years, whether it be in comics, animation, or live-action. Back in 1948, the black-and-white Superman serial brought the Man of Steel to the world of live-action for the first time, thanks to the help of actor Kirk Alyn. In 1993, Dean Cain donned the red cape and blue Kryptonian suit to star in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. The actor played the iconic DC hero alongside Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane.

A video recently surfaced online of an Australian politician getting egged by a teenage protester on-camera, who is then quickly brought to the ground by multiple other people in the room. One person who had quite a bit to say about the controversial video is Dean Cain, who took to Twitter to share his thoughts. Check out what the actor had to say in the post below.

Dean Cain didn’t stand down from his opinion and elaborated more on his thoughts in the comments section of his post. Check out the comments below to see what the actor had further to say on the video.

The actor elaborated on his thoughts even further.

Both Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher have returned to the world of DC since Lois & Clark: The Adventures of Superman ended in 1997, thanks to The CW’s Supergirl. The duo didn’t reprise their original characters though. Instead, they played brand new characters for the Supergirl series.

The CW’s Arrowverse does finally have a Superman and Lois Lane though, with Tyler Hoechlin playing the Man of Steel and Elizabeth Tulloch as the iconic ace reporter.The CW’s Superman was most recently featured in the Arrowverse crossover event Elseworlds, which aired in December.

The exciting event collided the worlds of Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow together for a reality-shattering showdown. The event also laid the groundwork for this year’s Arrowverse event, which will be an adaptation of a very iconic DC comic book event, Crisis on Infinite Earths.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding the world of DC as soon as more information becomes available. What’s your opinion on the controversial video? Do you think Dean Cain’s comments are justified? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.

    I just lost my respect.

    “I would assult a minor for a small act of protest in response to someone blaming mass shooting victims for their own deaths”.

    • chaburchak

      First of all, he didn’t announce it as a protest beforehand, he just hit the guy with an egg. Second, he didn’t have a sign on that said “Don’t hit me, I’m seventeen”. Can you tell how old people are at a glance? I can’t. Third, put yourself in the speaker’s shoes…you get hit in the back if the head, you feel something running down your neck…you know you’ve just been assaulted. It’s human nature to fight back. Cain’s right, it doesn’t matter what you’re protesting — if you hit someone, expect to be hit back.

  • Mohamed Akhbar

    Lost all respect towards this man. Bear in mind, he is still a person just like any commoner. I hope u are practicing what u preach DC.

  • Clay Strohman

    Why are you using a picture of Henry when he has nothing to do with this story? Do better

  • Cpt_Justice

    How pathetic to have to pump yourself up as a macho tough guy by bragging about how you;d punch out a teenager.
