December 13, 2017: Daniel Dae Kim as Superman?

Actress Caity Lotz (who plays Sara Lance on the TV series "DC's Legends of Tomorrow") has created a Social Media storm by calling for actor Daniel Dae Kim to be cast as Superman.

Lotz made the suggestion after seeing an animated GIF of Daniel Dae Kim removing his glasses on the red carpet at the 16th Annual Asian American Awards held earlier this week.





This sent the Twitterverse into a spin, with fans and fellow actors responding to the suggestion. Even Kim himself responded...

While nobody is necessarily suggestion Daniel Dae Kim would replace Henry Cavill, I could definitely see him playing an older version of Kong Kenan from Gene Luen Yang's "New Super-Man" comic book series.
