Earlier this week, the comedian ebook writer stated that the superhero’s sexuality will probably be revealed in a problem being launched on 9 November.
Speaking concerning the choice, author Tom Taylor stated: “I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes and I’m very grateful DC and Warner Bros share this idea.
“Superman’s symbol has always stood for hope, for truth, and for justice. Today, that symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics.”
However, Cain doesn’t agree. The actor, who performed the superhero alongside Teri Hatcher within the Nineteen Nineties collection The New Adventures Of Superman, described the choice as “bandwagoning”.
He stated that, whereas the reveal would have been “brave” 20 years in the past, he thinks it lands in a different way now.
“They said it’s a bold new direction; I say they’re bandwagoning,” he instructed Fox & Friends.
“I don’t think it’s bold or brave or some crazy new direction. If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave.
He continued: “But brave would be having him fight for the rights of gay people in Iran where they’ll throw you off a building for the offence of being gay.”
Superman is the second DC hero to return out as LGBTQ+ in latest months, with the present incarnation of Robin calling themselves “queer” in a latest situation of Batman: Urban Legends.
In the comics, he’s Jon Kent, the son of Clark.
