Kingsman star Taron Egerton becomes Jason Todd and suits up as Red Hood to take on Batman in an incredible new concept design.
It’s currently unclear what’s in store for the Batman characters on the big screen after Matt Reeves’ The Batman. It appears the upcoming film will take place outside of the DC Extended Universe like the Todd Phillips-directed Joker. However, there are still Batman characters continuing on in the DCEU like Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress.
One character many Batman fans are hoping to see in live-action at some point is Red Hood. The Batman is going in a new direction with a younger Bruce Wayne played by Robert Pattinson. Red Hood could eventually appear in this new Gotham timeline since director Matt Reeves is planning a trilogy of Batman films, but only time will tell.
Fan desire to see Jason Todd on the big screen has sparked fan-casting for Red Hood, with names like Kingsman star Taron Egerton being brought up to play the beloved DC Comics character. Egerton is currently a free agent when it comes to superhero franchises. While the Kingsman actor is typically brought up as the perfect actor to replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, this artwork from Mizuri on Instagram makes the case for why he should play Red Hood.
