Ever since the news of Henry Cavill’s exit from the DCEU was announced earlier this week, fans everywhere have been offering Warner Bros. their suggestions as to who should play Superman next, and in a surprise turn of events, Ken Jeong, star of The Hangover films, has thrown his hat into the ring.

While we’re well aware that Jeong is a known jokester, that fact that he’s pinned the above tweet and spent hours retweeting the #KenForKent and #KenForSuperman hangtags is incredibly hilarious.
In all seriousness, if Jeong were to land the role of Clark Kent, much like myself, he’d have to spend every waking hour in the weight room. That said, I’ve seen enough Tom Cruise movies to know that height means nothing, so as far as I’m concerned – #KenForSuperman!
Who do you think Warner Bros. should hire as Cavill’s replacement?
Who Should Replace Henry Cavill As Superman?
It feels like Scott Eastwood’s name gets tossed around a lot when it comes to superhero casting speculation and with good reason. He’s a young up-and-coming actor with a strong jawline and built-in name recognition thanks to his famous dad, Clint. Eastwood actually had a role in the DCU already, playing Lieutenant GQ Edwards in 2016’s Suicide Squad, but it was a minor role that also saw his character die. Therefore, Eastwood would be totally freed up to graduate to something bigger like Superman and even though we’d like to see him do some more dramatic roles to see if he has the necessary acting chops, he definitely has the right look to play Kal-El.
