Supernatural star Jensen Eckles developing secret project at DC/Warners

In a time when we’re getting an abundance of DC movies and TV shows, many from HBO Max, it seems there’s others in development that we don’t know about… not that that’s a surprise.

Now we’ve learned that a Nerdy favourite, Supernatural and The Boys’ star Jensen Eckles is secretly developing something at DC… but he’s not going to get too chatty about it in case it scuppers it from happening,

Ackles is no stranger to DC properties, having appeared in season 4 of Smallville as Jason Teague, he was also the voice of Jason Todd in the 2010 animated film Batman: Under the Red Hood [and was something of a fancast for a while for the actual live-action version] and even played Batman himself in a two-part animated Batman: The Long Halloween.

However, in a recent appearance of Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum’s Podcast, below, the star announced his involvement in a new DC project:


“There is a DC property that I’m currently developing right now with Warner Bros. and some other good partners that I’ve got my fingers crossed for,” he says, “But, again, I’m not going to talk about it because [I] don’t want to jinx it.”

Given his involvement with Warners/DC and The CW – he’s currently developing a Supernatural prequel series, Winchester, which will follow the adventures of Sam and Dean’s parents before the events of Supernatural – it’s likely he does have some sort of pull when it comes to DC.

Of course, Eckles didn’t say if it was movie, TV or even a video game project he’s working on, so it’s probably a good idea to keep your eye on the credits of any upcoming DC stuff – on the small and big screen.

What say you all? Would you like to see more Eckles in the DC multiverse of projects? Let me know, folks…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
