Michael B. Jordan reportedly met with Warner Bros. to pitch a Superman story with himself as Henry Cavill’s successor.
After initially stumbling with tepidly received films like Henry Cavill’s Batman v Superman and Justice League, Warner Bros. and DC are moving forward with plans for relatively more self-contained projects. While Aquaman and Shazam! were successful upon their respective releases and anticipation for upcoming films like Wonder Woman 1984 is high, Warner Bros. is still reportedly trying to figure out what to do with Superman.
While Henry Cavill recently stated that he has not given up on the role, his future as Superman is currently in questions following reports of contentious contract negotiations and Warner Bros. plans to focus on Supergirl‘s introduction to the DCEU. Now, Variety reports Michael B. Jordan met with Warner Bros. earlier this year to pitch a vision for Superman as part of the studio’s efforts to gain input from “high-profile talent” to help reinvent the DC hero for modern audiences.
According to the report, Michael B. Jordan is not ready to commit to a Superman film due to the likelihood of filming not starting for several years and his already-full schedule of upcoming projects. With no script or director attached, insiders reportedly believe a new Superman probably won’t be released before 2023.
In addition to his role as Killmonger in Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan also appeared in Chronicle, Fruitvale Station, and Creed. Upcoming Michael B. Jordan projects include Just Mercy and Without Remorse.

Henry Cavill’s most recently portrayed Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
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 Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
