Reports have it that the Peacemaker Superhero, Brad Abramenko, will take it on his shoulders if Henry Cavill does not. He made his debut in the final season of the American Superhero Television series. The series, which airs on HBO Max, featured a surprise visit by all heroes of the Justice League. Fans were glad to see their most loved original characters. However, some were absolutely star-struck by the latest update of Superman as Abramenko. Body doubles were used both for Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot. 

While getting a sneak peek into their wonder woman, fans went all mushy over Abramenko in his own BTS shots. After gaining such a positive response to the alterations, Brad Abramenko now seems to continue making his cameo in the DC Extended Universe. Keeping in the mind the same, filmmakers of Man of Steel 2 have turned their eyes towards him. After his first role in Peacemaker, the star has started a petition to get more Superman roles. However, fans were not too supportive of his competitive nature.

However, as of now, Cavill’s doubtful contract already hangs by a thin string. It is too uncertain and disappointing for fans who were hoping to see him back. Nevertheless, Abramenko’s charisma and vigor have provided them with some comfort. The viewers now seem to be growing fonder of the juvenile star with each passing day. Needless to say, some hardcore Cavill fans still find him unworthy of the role.

It is to see whether Abramenko proves himself apt for the role. No further developments have been made regarding it whatsoever. Are you excited as well to see Brad Abramenko as the new Superman in DC?
