Selection lately put collectively a protracted take a look at simply how DC is making an attempt to shake up its film universe within the coming years. There are many potentialities for the long run (apparently J.J. Abrams has had a couple of conferences about doubtlessly approaching board) however probably the most intriguing tidbit concerned Michael B. Jordan. Based on Selection, Jordan truly sat down with Warner Bros. to pitch his “vision” for Superman.
Selection says that Warner Bros. execs had been intrigued by his pitch, however Jordan couldn’t decide to the type of multi-year contract they’d need for the time being, so the thought is on the again burner for a few years. Nonetheless, it’s an intriguing prospect. DC films struggled initially, however have hit a little bit of a stride these days with Marvel Lady and Aquaman producing plenty of constructive consideration, and Joker hitting the billion mark on the field workplace. Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey and James Gunn’s Suicide Squad reboot appear equally poised for achievement, and Matt Reeves’ Batman reboot has generated nothing however constructive buzz thus far.
On Twitter, writer and Marvel Comics author Eve Ewing posted an insightful Twitter thread in regards to the concept of a black Superman, and the methods the favored mythology round Supes would want to alter for somebody like Jordan to put on the cape.
Let’s hope whoever’s in cost over at DC Comics is paying consideration (or, higher but, hiring her to put in writing the script).
