A few years back came a report that Michael B. Jordan was speaking with Warner Bros. Pictures about starring in a potential “Superman” film.
What seemed a slim possibility suddenly took on more weight when it was announced that J.J. Abrams and writer Ta-Nehisi Coates were working together on a new “Superman” film – one that could feature an actor of color in the Kal-El/Superman role.
At this point, some of the fandom thinks Michael B. Jordan is basically ready to suit up, but in a new interview with Heat Vision he has essentially shot down any of the talk so far.
Doing promotional rounds for “Without Remorse,” Jordan says he’s happy about the people involved in that project but he has no involvement in the project:
“It’s smart of DC to grab Ta-Nehisi to go ahead and adapt that project. He’s incredibly talented. It’s going to be worth checking out. I’m flattered that people have me in that conversation. It’s definitely a compliment, but I’m just watching on this one.”
Jordan is currently prepping to make his directorial debut on the upcoming sequel “Creed III”
