The idea that the role of the man of steel out played by an actor of color would have seemed impossible just a couple of years ago. This is not the case anymore, in fact Michael B. Jordan could be the new Superman.
In the morning of this Wednesday, all are plagued with the news that Henry Cavill would never interpret this paper, and from this moment all of us begin to imagine who might succeed him. A few minutes later, Deadline was reporting that a source at Warner Bros. had revealed that they might consider the actor of ‘Black Panther’, Michael B. Jordan.
An anonymous source does not necessarily consists in a certainty, however it could be something that the DC Universe needs. After several failures, a Superman black could be something interesting, daring and new for the audiences.
Interestingly, to get the role, Michael B. Jordan would be close to breaking the record for playing more characters of comics. In your list are Johnny Storm in the latest film ‘Fantastic Four’ and Killmonger in Black Panther’.
