Jensen Ackles is hot off the success of his long-running series Supernatural. He currently is set to appear in Amazon Prime’s critically acclaimed satire of the superhero genre, The Boys, where he’ll take a very likely antagonistic role. He’s been openly campaigning for a DC role in the past, such as his famous photoshoot as Jason Todd a.k.a. Red Hood. In an interview with Michael Rosenbaum in his Inside of You podcast series, he revealed that he may currently be working on tackling a DC role in the near future.
Well, there’s a DC property that I’m currently developing with Warner Bros. and some other good partners that I’ve got my fingers crossed for, but again I am not going to talk about it. You don’t want to jinx it.Jensen Ackles
As he doesn’t give away what exactly they may be adapting, it may be his dream project as the future Red Hood. The Flash is rumored to reimagine the DCEU and it would open up the possibility for Ackles to take on the role of his dreams. The way Rosenbaum asked him, he implied that it was about what role he’s always wanted to tackle and if this project becomes a reality – here’s hoping – he might finally manage to accomplish exactly that.
