When wanting to get the attention of folks as devoted as DC Comic fans, the greatest approach to get people talking in 2022 is with a bold or enigmatic social media post.
The renowned DC Universe character Mr. Terrific was featured in a shot that Gunn shared today on his Twitter and Instagram, and the result has the internet in a frenzy beyond your wildest imagination.
The tweet that mentioned DC Comics didn’t have a caption or any other information. The picture has received over 52,000 likes on Twitter and just under 100,000 likes on Instagram in a matter of hours.
The particular Mr. Terrific image that was employed was first seen on the cover of the Justice Society of America comic book, issue no. 76, which was released for the first time in 2005.

‘HECK YES. In response to the news, one enthusiastic fan wrote: “ABSOLUTELY HELL YES!” They continued, “I hope James (Gunn) casts John David Washington because he’s wonderful.”
Another interested DC fan predicted that Mr. Terrific may appear in the second season of the HBO Max show Peacemaker, saying, “Y’all, I think they’re going to put Mr. Terrific there.”
