I logged onto Twitter today and my timeline was covered with Misha Collins DC rumors. What’s up with that, guys?
The source of the Misha Collins DC hubbub seems to be the blog ScreenGeek.net, which had a lot of other DC rumors as well in that very same blog post. But of course, being a minion to the core and mostly following like minded people, it was one small sentence in the giant post that struck out to us.
Misha Collins, Channing Tatum, Milo Ventimiglia, Steven Yeun, and Jake Gyllenhaal have been approached for various roles.
Whoa, what? Let’s break this down.
First and foremost, both ScreenGeek and myself are eager to emphasis that these are just rumors, most of which came from Reddit. The source isn’t exactly verifiable, but sometimes these unsourced rumors are leaked by people in the know (ITK’s) who don’t want to put their job on the line by revealing too much information. On the other hand, these rumors can also be attributed to people just pulling our leg to stir fandom up. It’s happened before. It’ll happen again.
But let’s for just a moment believe this is real. How amazing would this be? I’m generally a Marvel fangirl, the only aspects of DC that I genuinely enjoy are the 90’s Batman cartoons. That said, if Misha Collins joins the DCU I will fling myself so far into it I’ll be one of those diehard fans who knows every single minute detail of DCU. I’m just that hardcore of a Misha stan and I have no regrets about that. The current rumor gives no indication as to who he might be playing, but I’m not picky here. I’m excited to see his career grow.
One of the aspects of this that makes me feel doubtful is that he is a regular on a highly popular TV show, a father of two, and helps run both the Random Acts charity and the highly popular scavenger hunt GISHWHES (see our coverage here). To top all that off he travels around the world for dozens of conventions every year, which take up most of his weekends. When would he have the time? But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. He has helpers for Random Acts and Gishwhes that do a large part of the day to day work. He isn’t in every episode of his current TV show. Sometimes his wife and kids travel with him when he films things. So difficult? Yes, but not impossible.
These Misha Collins DC rumors are beyond exciting. I’m not sure how realistic it is, but I’m rooting for it to be true. Also check out those big time names he’s paired with? How exciting! Go Misha!
