J.J. Abrams probably won’t be making the next Superman movie according to a new interview.
J.J. Abrams was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone to discuss his upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which is said to be the final film in the Skywalker saga. After that film hits cinemas, J.J. Abrams will head on over to WarnerMedia, where his company Bad Robot has set up a massive production deal. The deal would give J.J. Abrams keys to famous properties such as Batman, Superman, and Harry Potter.
It has been rumored for quite some time that J.J. Abrams would be directing the next Superman film. Unfortunately, when asked by the interviewer if he would be shooting the next Superman film, J.J. Abrams gave a vague but ultimately non-confirmative answer.
“We haven’t had those discussions yet.”
J.J. Abrams is known for rebooting and fine-tuning properties and making them giant box-office successes. He previously directed films in the Mission: Impossible and Star Trek franchises before making his way over to Star Wars. Beyond that, J.J. Abrams has quite a bit of history with the Superman property. In the early 2000’s, J.J. Abrams was tapped to write a film featuring the man of steel titled Superman: Flyby. J.J. Abrams’ Superman: Flyby was going to be directed by McG, but that deal eventually fell through, leading to the production of Superman Returns, which was directed by Bryan Singer.
Just recently, Henry Cavill discussed that he wasn’t done playing the role of Superman and that fans would soon find out exactly what he and Warner Bros. has cooking for the iconic superhero. For now, however, fans can meditate on the notion that J.J. Abrams won’t be directing the next film in the Superman franchise.

Henry Cavill was last seen as Superman in Justice League, which hit theaters in November 2017. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
