Over the past few days, you might have noticed a weird rumour doing the rounds claiming James Gunn has cast former Superman Henry Cavill as Frankenstein in Creature Commandos.
That would certainly be a different type of role for the British actor in the DCU, but we're not even remotely shocked to report that it won't actually be happening. The DC Studios co-CEO took to Twitter to debunk these claims, revealing that the role has already been cast with his and Peter Safran's "first choice."
We don't know who that is, but casting for the animated series will be very interesting seeing as the same actors will be used in live-action projects too.
In a separate Tweet, Gunn reiterated that DC Studios has "discussed other roles" with Cavill, so there's still a chance he'll be part of this shared world moving forward. Aquaman star Jason Momoa, for example, is expected to play Lobo (and we've heard it could happen as soon as Superman: Legacy).
Oh, and in news we're sure will excite many of you, Gunn has also mentioned that we've seen "less than half" of the "Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters" slate.
It's an exciting time to be a DC fan, that's for sure, and things are definitely looking up for this franchise.
