Michael B. Jordan talks about a hypothetical black Superman

In a recent interview, Michael B. Jordan, after being joined in the role for several years, said that although he doesn't know what Warner Bros. wants to do with the upcoming Superman movie (rumored a reboot no longer with Henry Cavill), there seems to be a general desire of people to see black protagonists in iconic superhero roles.

The actor then goes on to say that opportunities would exist, especially with intellectual properties that have not yet been exploited, while others would go instead leave them as they are.

Jordan's speech is definitely correct and in line with most of the speeches that have been made in recent years, especially in the field of casting characters from comics, even if, according to the actor, it should be analyze case by case.

However, it is recent news that Warner Bros. has entrusted JJ Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates with the project of a new film about the Man of Steel and that the protagonist could have a Superman black. However, it is not yet known whether it will be a reboot of the role of Clark Kent or if, presumably, the company wants to tell the story of one of the different (and canonical) heroes already present in the comics: one above all, Val-Zod, the Superman of Earth-2, which would be perfectly in line with the Batman played by Robert Pattinson, as he is also part of the same universe.

At the moment, Michael B. Jordan is engaged in the promotion of his latest film entitled Senza Rimorso, directed by Italian director Stefano Sollima and based on the novel of the same name by Tom Clancy which, if you don't know him, you can buy it by clicking on this link.
