“Turned me into a beast! Many more to come”.Pierson Fodé
Fodé was revealed only a couple of weeks ago as of writing to be in the running to star as the next live-action Superman post-Henry Cavill.

X-Men: First Class Star Nicholas Hoult has also been revealed to be in the running alongside Tom Brittney. However, the online response seems to have it that Fodé is in the public eye as #1 best suited for the role.
