Warner Bros. Reportedly Looking To Cast Michael B. Jordan As Superman

Following the news that Henry Cavill is likely done as Superman, a new report has emerged with a potential replacement for the role – and it’s probably not someone you’d initially think of in Michael B. Jordan. The actor has been in two Marvel films to date, playing Johnny Storm in 2015’s Fantastic Four, and playing Killmonger in this year’s Black Panther.

*Update* A new tweet from Cavill’s manager says that the actor is not leaving Superman – WB has released a statement:

“While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.”

The rest of this report has been left unchanged.

The new report comes from Deadline, who writes:

The word has been out that Warner Bros. has been mulling a completely different direction with its Superman canon for some time, even considering casting Michael B. Jordan in the role down the road.

It’s an interesting casting choice, but Jordan has shown that he’s capable of pulling of a role, so we’re sure this one will be no different. Here’s some of the reaction to the casting rumor:

As this story develops, we’ll be sure to keep you posted, as it looks like we’ll have plenty of DC Comics news in the near future.
