Along with other superheroes, Superman has a different fanbase. Because of the qualities the Man of Steel possesses, people love him. First created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, Superman is one of the most-loved DC Comics characters. Many actors portrayed the character on screen. However, Henry Cavill’s portrayal is the most accurate, according to the fandom. Although James Gunn, the new DC boss, axed the actor and took the story of Superman in a different direction. As he asked an important question on his social media question, fans of the man with a cape jumped in to share their love for Superman.
The new DC boss is known for his direct interactions with fans. Even when he took over the DC Studios and made the changes, fans asked a lot of questions about axing their favorite actors and characters. Gunn answered them directly via Twitter. Now, this time, as he is writing Superman Legacy, he asked an important question to the fandom. The 56-year-old filmmaker posted a picture from the Superman comic book with the caption, “What’s your favorite Superman Comic?”
