Henry Cavill, otherwise known as our current DCEU Superman, has Twitter completely lit with his newest tweets over the past two weeks. He started with tweeting a picture of his dog, Kal, then a selfie with a Green Lantern statue reflection in a window.

Then a few days ago Cavill posted a workout photo which seems inspiring and lighthearted until his end sentence:

Nothing funny to post here, it’s deadly serious because I’ve got to make sure that I’m bigger than Green Lantern…Wait whaaat?

But what does all of this mean? And why did Armie Hammer like his tweets?! There’s abuzz the DC fans that either Cavill and Hammer are just having fun, or Hammer really is up for a DC role, and everyone’s hoping it’s either Green Lantern or Nightwing. Hammer has constantly been teasing fans for months along with Joe Manganiello and Geoff Johns about the Green Lantern rumors.

With the reshoots happening soon, it’s likely Charles Roven changed his mind and may be including Green Lantern in the upcoming Justice League film.

Hi! I'm Shaina aka the Jokergurl. I've been studying comics (namely Batman) since I was 12 years old, and possibly even before that. My forte is being up on absolutely everything there is to know about the Caped Crusader, and both the Clown Prince and Princess of Crime. I recently graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with an MA in English and Creative Writing. Currently I am earning my MFA at National University. I have 5 cats and 2 dogs, and spend what free time I have doing whatever (mostly Pokémon GO). Have a happy!
