Jordan revealed his thoughts in the rumours that he’s playing a black version of Superman in the future during a recent interview.
He seemed pretty cagey when answering the question, and it got me thinking that it’s almost a done deal between him and Warner Bros. Pictures.
Playing black Superman would be an important thing for Michael B. Jordan and a step in the right direction for superhero films in general.
I’m also pretty sure that Warner Bros. would love to have Jordan on board the project.
There’s also the fact that it’s being reported that this movie will be directed by J.J. Abrams himself, and I know that the two of them get on very well.
Michael B. Jordan on whether he’s playing black Superman
Anyway, here’s what Michael B. Jordan had to say when he was asked whether he’s playing black Superman or not:
I don’t know what is really going on with [Black Superman] in particular. But everybody’s want and desire to see black leads and heroic roles is really important. Representation is important… There’s so many opportunities with different IP, different properties, different characters that never got the light of day. And there are certain ones that should just be where they are. So let’s just see how things shake out.
