NEW Superman movie reportedly set to introduce a black Man of Steel in a DC reboot.
Reportedly Warner Bros.’ latest Superman movie will see the series rebooted with the involvement of J.J. Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates. The new movie also has raised the possibility of involving a black actor as the Man of Steel.
The Man of Steel first made it onto the big screen in 1978, with Clark Kent / Kal-El played by Christopher Reeve. He made four Superman films with his last appearance being in 1987. 2006 saw Brandon Routh take over as the Man of Steel in Superman Returns.
Yet again DC’s Superman was rebooted, this time under the direction of Zack Snyder, as 2013’s Man of Steel starred Henry Cavill as Kal-El.
The movie was a hit and Cavell starred in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and he is set to appear in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
The next Superman film is set to be produced by J.J. Abrams and written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, and questions have been raised over who will play the Man of Steel. Given that the film is being touted as a reboot many expect that Cavill will not be returning in the lead role.
According to THR, Warner Bros. and DC Films’ want to introduce a black actor to the role of Superman. Several names have been rumoured and these include Michael B. Jordan who was approached in the past.
