New artwork shows Michael B Jordan suiting up as the Val-Zod version of Superman to replace Henry Cavill.
Although Henry Cavill’s Superman can currently be seen in Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut, rumors have swirled for quite some time over whether the British star will return to the role in the future. And with the recent news that JJ Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates are helming a Superman reboot for Warner Bros. it doesn’t seem like Cavill will be back for to play the DC Comics hero. However, reports about the reboot also suggested that the project could focus on a Black Superman instead, following Michael B Jordan’s attempts to develop the character in 2019.
For the moment it’s not clear whether Michael B Jordan is being eyed to play the Val-Zod Superman on the big screen, but this concept design sees him stepping into a perfect costume for the role. The artwork from Instagram user ‘spdrmnkyxxiii’ gives Jordan a red, white, blue and gold design which feels like the ideal blend of Henry Cavill’s cinematic costume and Val-Zod’s suit from the comics. You can see Michael B Jordan in the suit below.
