J.J. Abrams could direct the next Superman movie after signing new deal with Warner Bros.
It seems that J.J. Abrams could wind up bringing Superman to the big screen as part of the recent deal between Bad Robot Productions and WarnerMedia. J.J Abrams originally wrote the Superman: Flyby script which was to be directed by Brett Ratner before it was scrapped, eventually becoming Superman Returns. But it seems that J.J. Abrams could helm a Superman movie quite soon if a reporter for Variety is to be believed.
Variety’s Justin Kroll recently appeared on the Barstool Sports podcast ‘My Mom’s Basement’, speaking to Robbie Fox about the inner workings of Hollywood. When they got to the topic of J.J. Abrams’ recent deal with WarnerMedia, Kroll hinted that the deal could wind up leading to the director taking on a Superman movie. Although he didn’t mention Superman specifically, he mentions that the J.J. Abrams deal could lead to ‘someone with a cape’. With Batman safe in the hands of Matt Reeves and Superman’s future unclear in the DC Universe, it’s not a stretch to imagine that Warner Bros. would want a a big name like J.J. Abrams to bring Superman back to the big screen. Read Kroll’s comments below.
“I hope the new Warner Bros. deal leads to more stuff, maybe someone with a cape. We’ll see. That’s a hint.”

Henry Cavill was last seen as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. 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.
Justice League is now available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Michael B. Jordan, Henry Cavill, Superman and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
