J.J. Abrams Is Rebooting Superman For WB With Ta-Nehisi Coates

It’s been revealed that J.J. Abrams is going to be rebooting Superman for Warner Bros. Pictures with Ta-Nehisi Coates writing the movie.

This was revealed by Deadline in a recent exclusive they posted.

This news has been followed by a number of outlets claiming that Warner Bros. Pictures is now interested in getting Michael B. Jordan to be the new Superman.

So, this basically means that Henry Cavill is all but done playing Superman, as far as these reports are concerned.

Deadline also revealed that Hannah Minghella will serve as a producer on the movie.

There has been no plot revealed yet for the movie and no one’s attached apart from Ta-Nehisi Coates as the film’s writer.

    Simple. Fuck your WB. Virtual signaling assholes. How many franchises does this guy have to kneecap and headshot before studios realize he is a horrid film maker.
