The animated film will be directed by Jeff Wamester, who is known for the Guardians of the Galaxy tv series. Meanwhile, the script will be penned by Meghan Fitzmartin (Supernatural, DC Super Heo Girls) and Jeremy Adams (Supernatural, Batman: Soul of the Dragon). Meanwhile, Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) and Kimberly S. Moreau (Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) will produce alongside supervising producer Butch Lukic and Warner Bros. Animation/Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Matt Bomer will be playing a DC superhero. The openly gay actor plays Negative Man in Doom Patrol. As Bomer told Newsweek, he was attracted to the role because it created a “gay male superhero” without being a stereotype of gay men

We’ll see how this second DC superhero role goes for Bomer when it arrives on HBO Max sometime this year.
