Warner Bros. is developing a relaunch of Superman, with producer J.J. Abrams and screenwriter Ta-Nehisi Coates working on a bold reimagining of the Man of Steel. It’s widely believed that this movie will sidestep Clark Kent and focus on a black version of the Kryptonian hero. What’s more, Michael B. Jordan is said to be the studio’s favorite to inhabit the role.
For the first time since the rumors began, the Black Panther actor has now responded to the claims in a new interview. He neatly sidestepped getting into the issue of whether he really is in the running or not.
“I don’t know what is really going on with [ Superman] in particular. But everybody’s want and desire to see black leads and heroic roles is really important. Representation is important… There’s so many opportunities with different IP, different properties, different characters that never got the light of day. And there are certain ones that should just be where they are. So let’s just see how things shake out.”
