BuzzFeed Daily: This is obviously a big step for Superman, who, since first appearing over 80 years ago, has served as the sort of embodiment of stereotypical cis masculinity. And you know, Dean Cain, who played Superman in the show Lois & Clark, told Fox & Friends he thinks it would have been “bold or brave” 20 years ago, but feels like “bandwagoning” to do it now. Do you think this new direction makes sense for this particular iteration of Superman? Or does it seem like DC is sort of trying to just check off a box?
ND: I think it makes sense. I think when they read the headline “Superman is bi,” a lot of people think that they’ve now gone back and made Clark Kent bisexual, which is not the case. It’s a brand-new character that we only met in 2015, in comic book form. So I think it’s more of just following this character’s journey, and it came to a natural progression. And in this comic, he’s had this kind of friendship grow with his now love interest. So it seems like it’s more that the fans were seeing it, and it’s great to know that what they were seeing wasn’t just something they were reading into, which I feel like has been the case in TV and movies and comic books forever. So I think it’s really nice that it’s going to happen, and I wouldn’t consider it bandwagoning as opposed to following this natural evolution of this new character.
