See ‘Euphoria’ Star Jacob Elordi Replace Henry Cavill As Superman

From Euphoria to the DC Universe!

Jacob Elordi Henry Cavill Superman Euphoria

Euphoria star Jacob Elordi suits up as Superman to replace Henry Cavill in a stunning new concept design.

Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav reportedly wants to “revitalize” Superman, who he feels has been left to languish in recent years. While Henry Cavill proved a popular Superman with many fans, DC Studios co-head James Gunn recently announced the character is being recast for his next cinematic solo outing.

Jacob Elordi, best known for his work as Nate Jacobs on the HBO series Euphoria, is one of the names that has been thrown around by fans as a potential new Superman. As this design reveals, Elordi certainly has the right look to bring the Man of Steel to life.

Jacob Elordi becomes Superman

This concept design imagines a younger, fresh-faced Superman played by Jacob Elordi. The costume actually draws influence from concept art for J.J. Abrams’ unmade Superman: Flyby, adopting a look that is closer to Kal-El’s classic comic book appearance, albeit with a slight modern touch. Check out the concept design by Instagram user “spdrmnkyxxiii” below.

With James Gunn and Peter Safran now running Warner Bros. Discovery’s DC division, there’s a possibility they could be looking to recast more of their major characters soon. if Warner Bros. is looking to revitalize Supes and restore him to his former glory, a new actor could help mark a fresh start for the iconic hero following complaints over Zack Snyder’s overly moody interpretation of the character.

Not only would this casting be a change of pace for Superman, it would be a very different role for Jacob Elordi after his work on Euphoria, where his character Nate Jacobs is one of the show’s most despised antagonists.

A new era for the DC Universe

Shazam! Fury of the GodsThe FlashBlue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are currently in various stages of post-production at Warner Bros. Discovery, with all four DC Universe movies slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
