Following his stellar performance in It’s a Sin, actor and Years & Years singer Olly Alexander can do anything. While there have been rumors he’s up to be the next Doctor in Doctor Who, Alexander said he’s not interested in that. So what is he interested in? Well, he told NME he’d love to play an “erotic superhero.”
When the magazine asked Alexander what he’s doing next, he responded: “There’s a lot of good stuff that gets made, but good stuff that gets made with gay characters that I could possibly play? Not so much.” He added, “Basically, for me to be interested in a role, it would have to be someone sexy with magic powers. I basically want to play some kind of erotic superhero.”
We would LOVE to see it! In case Mr. Alexander needs some ideas, here are nine sexy, and gay, superheroes we’d love to see him play!
Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s son, Jonathan Kent, who took up the mantle of Superman after is father, is bisexual in the comics. Like his father before him, he’s currently dating his own dreamy journalist, Jay Nakamura. We’d love to see Olly in the red and blue of Superman’s costume.
Alexander is a perfect choice for this British supernatural crimefighter and all-round rogue. He’s handsome, he’s pansexual, he’s cool, and we want to see him again on the big screen. The character had a solo movie, where he was played by Keanu Reeves, and was played wonderfully by Matt Ryan on TV, but we’d love to see the queer, and British version in the DCEU.
Olly Alexander for bisexual Robin! Tim Drake is one of many of Batman’s Robins, and was recently revealed to be bisexual. With the new, upcoming Batgirl HBO Max film, it would be the perfect time to introduce Drake into the DCEU.
