A new montage of actor Matt Bomer as The Eradicator is making us crave for a live-action version of the Superman villain.
Digital artist Dalton Barret is recently coming up with a lot of crazy ideas for DC characters. He surprised us with a fan-imagined motion poster of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and it was amazing. Now he did a montage using actor Matt Bomer as the Superman villain The Eradicator with his yellow goggles and everything:
Although it makes us wish for a live-action version of this awesome Superman villain, it’s not likely a possibility we’ll see Bomer in this fashion soon enough. The actor is already engaged with his portrayal as Larry Trainor/Negative Man in the upcoming Doom Patrol series and there’s a huge probability we’ll see him pop-up in other DC Universe related media as he did recently in Titans. Also, it seems that the next Superman live-action film is still far from development with Henry Cavill engaged with Netflix’s The Witcher series for the time being.
Until we get a live-action depiction of The Eradicator we’ll have to see him in Reign Of The Supermen. Here’s the official synopsis:
Reign of the Supermen finds Earth’s citizens – and the Man of Steel’s heroic contemporaries – dealing with a world without Superman. But the aftermath of Superman’s death, and the subsequent disappearance of his body, leads to a new mystery – is Superman still alive? The question is further complicated when four new super-powered individuals – Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy and the Eradicator – emerge to proclaim themselves as the ultimate hero. In the end, only one will be able to proclaim himself the world’s true Superman.
Directed by Sam Liu, Reign of the Supermen stars Cameron Monaghan, Jerry O’Connell, Cress Williams, Patrick Fabian, Rebecca Romijn, Nathan Fillion, Rainn Wilson, Toks Olagundoye and Nyambi Nyambi.
Reign of the Supermen is now available digitally, 4K Ultra HD, and Blu-ray. The movie will be streaming on DC Universe on January 29, 2019.
