The DC Extended Universe might already have its plate filled with Aquaman, Shazam! and Wonder Woman 1984 lined up for release, but according to a new rumor, it looks like another Superman movie might be on the way – one that may include a hologram cameo of Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel.

A DC fan on Reddit just recently wrote a post claiming that he just attended the 40th-anniversary screening of Reeves Superman: The Movie in Beverly Hills.

During the event, Jack O’Halloran, the actor who played the villain Non in the classic comic book movie, told the audience that Warner Brothers actually has plans to bring back Reeves to the big screen in a future Superman movie.  Well, as a hologram, at least.

Classic Superman fans very well know that back in 1995 Reeve was left a quadriplegic after the actor was thrown off from a horse during a competition in Virginia. Needing a wheelchair and a portable ventilator to breathe for the rest of his life, it seems highly unlikely that Reeve will be able to fully return to his role as The Last Son of Krypton – though the studio could very well use old clips from Reeve’s movies for his hologram cameo.

While fans ought to take this new rumor with a grain of salt as they should with any rumor springing online, some have started speculating that Warner Brothers could be developing a potential Crisis on Infinite Earths kind of movie. In the comics, the Crisis on Infinite Earths featured alternate versions of the planet, allowing for different versions of Superman to come together.
