Thomas Haden Church Teases Non-Marvel Superhero Movie Role He Filmed Last Year

Thomas Haden Church is already known to comic book fans for bringing to live the Sandman, one of Spider-Man’s greatest foes, in Spider-Man 3. Now, Church has revealed, in an interview with JoBlo, that he will be appearing in an upcoming superhero film:

“I’m not supposed to talk about it, but I actually have returned, but not in the Marvel world, it’s another world, but it is in that genre of superheroes and supervillains. I’m not supposed to talk about it, it’s a movie I shot last year. They’re trying to keep it-and good luck to ‘em-with, y’know, today man, I’m surprised it hasn’t already kinda been revealed.”

If by Marvel world he’s including not only the MCU, but whatever Sony and Fox are doing with Spider-Man and the X-Men then the only other options left are DCEU’s Aquaman and the upcoming Hellboy reboot. Church would only add to the star power associated with both films.

Which film do you think Church is a part of, and what role could he be playing? Is there another superhero film he could be a part of? Perhaps Glass?

  • I also wonder if it could have anything to do with those Valiant movies. Hard to keep track of all the comic adaptations these days.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Roger the homunculus in the new Hellboy

  • Peacesquad

    Maybe umbrella academy? Maybe he was secretly in Aquaman as Arthur’s dad

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    He was great as Sandman. I’m really down on that movie, but he was a bright spot. Seeing him in another comic book movie would be cool.

  • I’m actually leaning towards Glass. Other sites are missing that one from there predictions. The it’s another world but that genre makes me think it’s hinting to a more street level superhero vibe those films give off.

  • “DCEU’s Aquaman and the upcoming Hellboy reboot”

    – Love this!

  • Maybe he’s DC’s Sandman. /s
