Has Warnes Bros. decided to look for a new Superman despite Henry Cavill announcing that the role is ‘still’ his? Following the dank of “Justice League” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” it looks like the new Man of Steel is on the hunt and Michael B Jordan could be the preferred candidate. According to a report from Variety, the studio is looking for a new profile who might interest the audience,
‘’To help find a way to make Superman relevant to modern audiences, studio brass has been polling lots of high-profile talent. There have been discussions with J.J. Abrams, whose company Bad Robot recently signed a massive first-look deal with the studio, and there was a meeting with Michael B. Jordan earlier this year with the “Creed” star pitching Warners on a vision for the character’’.
While the studio seemingly is ready to weigh in new candidate to upturn the whole commercial dank, Jordan, as of now has no given a green signal for the man in blue suit.
‘’Jordan isn’t ready to commit to taking on the project since filming doesn’t seem likely to happen for several years and he has a full dance card of projects’’
‘’Insiders think that a new Superman film is unlikely to hit screens before 2023, given that there’s no script and no director attached’’ the report further adds.
DC produced movies went through a rough patch when Justice League and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice were met with less than glowing reviews. The saving grace came with Jason Momoa’s Aquaman which brought in $1billion at the box office and the current Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker which too broke the $1billion mark becoming the first R-rated movie ever to do so.
