Last week, it was reported that Henry Cavill will no longer be playing Superman in the DC Extended Universe films. Now, Deadline reports that Warner Bros. is considering casting Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan as the Man of Steel in the future.
The outlet writes that the studio is considering Michael B. Jordan for the role of Superman as it contemplates taking the character in a new direction:
The word has been out that Warner Bros. has been mulling a completely different direction with its Superman canon for some time, even considering casting Michael B. Jordan in the role down the road.
Of course, Michael B. Jordan is arguably best known for his roles as Adonis Creed in Ryan Coogler’s Creed, Erik KIillmonger in Black Panther, and Oscar Grant in Fruitvale Station.
