DC's James Gunn Seems to Be Teasing a Mister Terrific Project


DC Studios' James Gunn has teased another superhero's potential arrival in the DC universe.
On Twitter, Gunn simply posted a photo of Mister Terrific/Michael Holt with no text included. This has fans in the replies certain that the character will make his way to the new DC universe in some way.

Mister Terrific is a DC superhero who made his first comic appearance in 1942. Two different men have taken up the Mister Terrific mantle: Terry Sloane originally, followed by Michael Holt. The photo Gunn posted is specifically of Holt, who has appeared in DC's Arrowverse with a role in Arrow from Season 4 to Season 8.
Holt has the ability to easily learn and perfect skills that others spend a lifetime working on. He has 14 PhDs, a high-tech firm he eventually sells to Waynetech, and is a gold medal-winning Olympian. After the accidental death of his family, he takes the name Mister Terrific and joins the Justice Society of America, which was recently seen in DC's Black Adam.
It's unclear exactly what role Mister Terrific will have in James Gunn and Peter Safran's plan for DC. The two co-CEOs have started work on an eight-to-ten year plan for DC films, TV shows, animation projects, and more.
We know Gunn is focusing on building the "new DCU" rather than spending time on canceled projects. The new DC universe will feature the return of Henry Cavill's Superman, and Aquaman star Jason Momoa has teased that Gunn made one of his dreams come true.
