Idris Elba wants a live ‘Superman in the Hospital’ storyline

During one of the press meets, Idris Elba expressed his wish to watch a live-action version of Superman in the Hospital story explored in The Suicide Squad, directed by James Gunn. In The Suicide Squad, this Superman reference had a huge contribution to Bloodsport’s backstory and also added a savageness to his character. In the particular scene, Amanda Waller said that Bloodsport sent Superman to the ICU by using a kryptonite bullet.

But as recently reported by Fandango’s Erik Davis, Idris Elba claimed that something special is cooking:

“I just spoke with Idris Elba about his new film Beast. I asked what we’ll see him in next – a Marvel project or DC, and he said DC. He said he’s got a really big thing cooking for DC right now.”

With all these theories and rumors summed up, the fans still hope for Henry Cavill to return to the DCEU. And as per Bloodsport’s project, the associates of this project are still in the dark and we have to wait until any updates come from the David Zaslav fortress.
