Earlier this morning it was announced that Henry Cavill is out as Superman, an iconic purpose he played in 3 films so distant — Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League. Although not by any error of Cavill’s, those 3 superhero films were put down for their forbidding mood and nihilistic indicate of perspective — dual things Superman is not famous for, so it’s distinct that DC would wish to start anew. Although with whom is a surprise, and an comprehensive provide to fans, as one name stood out from a container of Superman hopefuls: Michael B. Jordan!
This comes pleasantness of Deadline who stated: “The word has been out that Warner Bros. has been mulling a totally opposite instruction with its Superman canon for some time, even deliberation casting Michael B. Jordan in a purpose down a road.” Michael B. Jordan is indeed an sparkling and desirous choice.
Michael B. Jordan won over nerd hearts with his description of Killmonger, a puzzling knave in Ryan Coogler’s shining Marvel film Black Panther. We’d be lingering if we didn’t discuss that he also played a superhero before with his description of Johnny Storm, aka The Human Torch in a maligned 2015 instrumentation of Fantastic Four, so Michael B. Jordan’s superhero bonafides are entrance tighten to that of a career actor, and his comfortable attract would fit good in a purpose of a impression who has always developed with his audience.
Of course, there’s a poisonous apportionment of a nerdosphere that would purchase their invisible and extremist nerd pearls during a judgment of a black Superman, and if they do, afterwards we am a improved nerd than them. Didn’t we extremist dorks ever hear of Calvin Ellis, a Superman of Earth 23!? On that Earth, this Superman serves as President and helps strengthen a Multiverse with a assistance of Justice Incarnate. You can review about him in Final Crisis #7, Action Comics #9 (2011) and a Multiversity series. Grant Morrison combined a impression and formed him on Barack Obama, he’s great.
Anyway, who knows what kind of Superman Michael B. Jordan would be playing, wether a Calvin Ellis or Kal-El, or something totally different, or if he would get a purpose during all. For now, DC and Warner Bros are focusing on a Supergirl adaptation.
Still, for now, a large aged comic book nerd can dream, can’t he? Superman wink.
