The DC Extended Universe has lost Henry Cavill as its Superman, but that has not been an impediment for Warner Bros to launch a new film of the superhero in charge of JJ Abrams. What is new is that the character will be played by an Afro-descendant actor.
In the vignettes, we have seen various versions of Black Superman such as, for example, Calvin Ellis (from Earth-23). As for the signing, the fans chose Michael B. Jordan as the best candidate to play him and he has not kept silent about it.
“I am flattered that people have me in that conversation. It is definitely a compliment. Whoever he is or if he really is, I think it will be something interesting to see, ”the actor previously told Jake’s Takes. Now, the plans have changed and his separation from the project is confirmed.
In fact, Collider confirmed that “Jordan has not wanted to participate in conversations about Kal-El with an ethnic change for the same reasons that many fans are rejecting her. However, I would be interested in participating in a Black Superman project focused on the Val-Zod story. “
Sources from the specialized media point out that this project would be a limited series for HBO Max. The actor will play the role of producer, but his participation as the protagonist of the story has not yet been finalized.
“It is important that people see themselves in roles that they would not normally see. What that does to the next generation, to a child or someone who did not think that this is something they could achieve, now they are thinking about it and daydreaming, “Jordan told a Hollywood reporter while promoting the film Without remorse.
