Michael B. Jordan Eyes Superman Role

Published: Wednesday 27th Nov 2019 by David

Michael B. Jordan has his eye on the Superman movie empire.

Full story below…

Warner Bros. is interested in finding innovative new ways to tell its long-running stories and are in talks with Jordan after learning that he was interested in playing the legendary hero Superman.

 

Variety broke it down….

To help find a way to make Superman relevant to modern audiences, studio brass has been polling lots of high-profile talent. There have been discussions with J.J. Abrams, whose company Bad Robot recently signed a massive first-look deal with the studio, and there was a meeting with Michael B. Jordan earlier this year with the ‘Creed’ star pitching Warners on a vision for the character.

Nothing is set in stone at the moment as a new Superman movie is years away from being released.

Henry Cavill is the latest actor to slide into the iconic character’s shoes.

    He doesn’t know how to act

    He plays the same character in every movie.

    He was the weakest link in black panther. Sorry not sorry

    • Jasmine November 27, 2019

      Shut it Uncle Tom. I dont recall any of the white men playing superman having good acting skills! Good acting skills is not required.

    • Kix November 27, 2019

      We agree there

    Will NEVER happen. White america will boycott.

    • CUMila November 27, 2019

      Good I aprove this boycott, just like we boycotted Julia Roberts from becoming Harriet Taubman I hate this double standard don’t like black actors portraying white roles or the reverse.

      • Natalie November 27, 2019

        Superman is a fictional character. I-

      • CUMila November 27, 2019

        I said what I said! Your argument is b******* blackpanther is fictional as well so would you aprove and support if they’ve casted Tom Cruise or Cameron Diaz as black panther?

      • Malik Wright November 27, 2019

        Thank you, for saying that! I appreciated the facts that yourne not like this ignorant m************ in tge comment section.

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. November 27, 2019

        @C..- I agree.

      • Kix November 27, 2019

        Black Panther is a movie about a great African civilization that has not been penetrated by Europeans. It is literally a racially motivated plot so your argument doesn’t hold up. Superman isn’t really a racialized character. With that said MBJ can’t act. I just wNt him to go away

  3. Tyty November 27, 2019

    Not every single character has to change race… but I mean Hollywood is literally replacing white actors with black ones 😂🤣 in every other movie. I suppose when you’re becoming a minority in the world/America nobody cares about your representation. Oh well 💁🏽

    • Kix November 27, 2019

      Stop playing the victim. Black Americans can’t even play ourselves in Hollywood movies that we faught for. They are giving all our roles to foriegn Blacks.

  4. Malik Wright November 27, 2019

    First of damn all to all you ignorant motheruckers commetting on this b**** lets get something straight. He is justs a cartoon superhero. He can be played by any race (Black, chinese, Indian etc.) Just like the situtaion with Halle Bailey. Ariel is just a f****** a cartoon mermaid. It dosen’t matter if she the original character is white. The directoe thought she was a good choice for the role so deal with s***. You don’t have to watch it! It time for Black people to get the reginiction in Hollywood we deserve n****!

    • Clarksooon November 27, 2019

      Black panther, storm are all comic/cartoon characters, u wouldn’t be happy if they cast Brad Pitt as tchala or Jennifer Lawrence as storm

    • Dc November 27, 2019

      Stfu when he played human torch in fantastic 4 it flopped don’t nobody want this never gonna happen

  5. Ughhh November 27, 2019

    Sorry Superman is white. We can’t change everything. For once I’m on white people’s side when it comes to this role. No Michael. Let Henry Cavill keep it until they find better. Black people let’s create new super heroes 🙄

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. November 27, 2019

      @Uggh – Well said and I agree.

    • Kix November 27, 2019

      Superman is superman. He isn’t racialized in anyway in the comics or movies.

  6. #TheTruth November 27, 2019

    It’s so stupid to put black actors instead of white people to play the positive discrimination/modern card.

    Why don’t you create new iconic roles for Black people ? For Latinos ? For Asians ? That’s the best thing to do.

    Look at them launching Black Panther and the success it was. Keep doing that.

    It’s the same deal with Disney. Ok they’ve been doing efforts in portraying different cultures and backgrounds with Pocahontas, The Princess and the Frog, Moana, Coco etc. Keep creating new roles, don’t switch things around.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. November 27, 2019

      @#The… – I agree and it’s sad that they don’t see things this way. This kind of moves are going to create more tension.

  7. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. November 27, 2019

    NO.

  8. Josh Colin Alcazar November 27, 2019

    You want recognition,change the way you raise your children. Stop thinking your entitled to something because you’re black. You’re not entitled to anything. Superman is white get over it. I’m white and I would not want to see Black lightning be played by a white guy. Get over it Superman will I’ll be white, unless he’s playing a different earth version.

    • Kix November 27, 2019

      Stop thinking you are entitled to things because you’re white. This post wreaks of entitlement and explicit racism.

  9. Jackson November 27, 2019

    Bad idea I’m not here for it! Michael B was awesome in black panther but he sucked in Fantastic four. He’s just not a believable Superman for me! Unless they are introducing a different Superman for example Superboy-Prime or justice lord. I would almost them prefer for them to cast a Latino Superman because there is a Latino Superman…Superman (Hernan Guerra). Or tell the story of the Asian Superman Kong Kenyan.

    Inclusivity doesn’t have to just be casting African American people. There’s so Many different people of color. And so many more stories to tell.

  10. Bravo!! November 27, 2019

    I’m black and it just wont be right. He another will smith every character he plays is the same. I wouldn’t want to see him as Superman. Now, maybe doomsday will be a better role for him. At least he be close to being Superman as doomsday

  11. November 27, 2019

    I’m for this.

  12. PinotNoir November 27, 2019

    Hollywood wants to keep the narrative intact: Italians are mobsters, Latinos drug traffickers, Arabs terrorists, Asians in need of Jesus to take the wheel, Black men pimps/ abusive/ deadbeat dads and women hoochies, Ashkenazi Jews meek victims, while Whites s*** roses and p*** cologne. 👍 That said, let’s not affirmative-action the s*** outta hiring black actors for any role. Audiences need variety. Monopolizing theatre screens with one race will cause saturation and plummet said-race’s audience attracting and tickets selling power within half a dozen years. The same applies to hiring a gender to play a role immortalized in our consciousness as the opposite gender. Enough actresses are butching it up for movie roles as is: Blanchett & Bullock in Ocean’s 8, Stewart in Charlie’s Angels, etc.

  13. No Glory November 27, 2019

    For all of you ignorant @ss crybabies. There IS a black superman by the name of Val Zod. This is NOT the same superman we see all the time. Do some research you f*cking d*ckheads

    • Bravo!! November 27, 2019

      We all can’t be geek nerds!

    • Bravo!! November 27, 2019

      And if they do bring Val Zod to the big screen he will be a cartoon like spidey verse movie

  14. Paulo November 27, 2019

    I’m all for MBJ s*** ass everywhere he can be but another Superman reboot so soon? Gosh give it a rest. I’d rather they work with him on John Stewart/Green Lantern arc.
