Okay. We’re all friends. There’s mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character. Like everyone here, I love superheroes. What could the right character would be? It just had to be right.
I’ll tell you three things. I won’t tell you on who it is. I’ll tell you the three qualities on who we’re looking for. And I’ll let you guys figure it out. And it’ll be fun.
Here we go. The first quality we’re looking for is that he has to be extremely complex and has a lot going on what that does for me as an actor and for the studio. It gives us some space where we can explore with the complexities.
The other quality is that the character had to be well known, but never brought to life. As an actor, it gives me space as with the personality—it gives me a chance to put an imprint into his personality with the tools I can bring to the table. It’ll be a unique twist into his personality and still pay a homage to on who he is.
And the third thing, most important, is that he has to be a badass motherfucker. And on a Superman level of power where he can throw down.
With those three qualities, I’m happy we have found that character. And we’re out to a lot of writers.
Then he followed it up with a tweet just in case sites like ours slacked off and didn't post his tease.

Many are guessing a return to the role he was up for a couple years ago: Lobo, but I still wouldn't count out John Stewart or Black Adam. What do you think?

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
