We learned months ago that Ta-Nehisi Coates was writing a reboot of Superman under J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production label. Now The Hollywood Reporter has word that Warner Bros. and DC are searching for a Black actor to suit up for the film, as well as a Black director. Further, while the script is still in the early stages, the trade reports that this new Superman is expected to be introduced outside of the DC Extended Universe. Michael B. Jordan has been the center of rumors for the role since the project was announced, though nothing seems to be close to being confirmed.
