Actor Michael B. Jordan has long been rumored to play a black version of Superman in an upcoming film, with recent reports stating that Warner Bros. have hired writer Ta-Nehisi Coates to reboot the Superman film franchise alongside producer J.J. Abrams.
In a new interview with CinePOP, in which Jordan discusses his new movie “Without Remorse,” the actor continues to shy away from letting fans know whether he is connected with the Superman film reboot. “I mean I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t really know what is going with that in particular, but I think that everybody’s wants and desires to see black leads in heroic roles are really, really important.”
“Let’s just see how things shake out.”
