Matt Bomer suits up as Superman in a new concept design that imagines the Doom Patrol star as Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel 2 replacement.
Although it’s still not 100% clear if Henry Cavill will be back to reprise his role as Superman, there’s plenty of candidates available to fill the iconic boots if he decides his time as the iconic DC Comics hero is over. One actor that often gets mentioned by Superman fans is Doom Patrol star Matt Bomer. Although he’s busy playing Negative Man next to the rest of the dysfunctional superhero family, this fan art depicts him in the Superman suit for Man of Steel 2.
The concept was created by digital artist ‘skull101ify’ and gives Matt Bomer the costume first worn by Henry Cavill in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. While Snyder’s Justice League cut is set to hit HBO Max later this year, many fans still want to see a sequel to Superman’s first solo film in the DCEU. But with Cavill’s schedule getting busier and busier thanks to projects like The Witcher, who knows if he’d even be available to return if a sequel managed to get the green light. The Matt Bomer Superman design shows the star in front of the Fortress of Solitude and he certainly fits the part. You can see the design below.
