Henry Cavill Returns as Superman Villain
In a surprise casting twist, Henry Cavill has been cast in the role of Lex Luthor for the HBO Max series focusing on Val-Zod.
As previously reported, Michael B. Jordan and his production company Outlier Society are working to produce a TV series about Val-Zod, a black Superman from a different reality. With Jordan reportedly in the lead role as Val-Zod, Henry Cavill has been chosen to take on the role of that earth’s Lex Luthor.
Sources say that Outlier Society has hired a writer who is currently working on the script, though we were unable to ascertain their identity. The Val-Zod project is being written as a limited series that Jordan will also produce.
This is a different project to the black Superman film JJ Abrams is putting together for Warner Bros. from a script being written by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
