WB is still in search of both a black director and black actor for the upcoming Superman reboot. Also, the reboot will be Kal-El’s story and not Val-Zod or Calvin Ellis.
From THR, here’s what their article said:
When Warners announced in February that celebrated author Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing the screenplay and Abrams is producing, it did not address the matter of helming. But insiders say Warners and DC are committed to hiring a Black director to tackle what will be the first cinematic incarnation of Superman featuring a Black actor, with one source adding that putting Abrams at the helm would be “tone-deaf.”
The Superman film appears to be moving onto its own track and won’t be part of the universe, as of now. Sources tell THR that Coates is crafting a Kal-El in the vein of the original Superman comics and will have the protagonist hail from Krypton and come to Earth. While the story is currently being crafted and many details could change, one option under consideration is for the film to be a 20th century period piece.
For Superman, I would love to see Michael B. Jordan play the role just like everyone else. When it comes to a director, the first person who comes to mind is Steven Caple Jr., which I think is perfect. Another director I would choose for the film is Antoine Fuqua!
Another thing I wanted to add is that Kal-El being black is perfectly fine. Kryptonians are all aliens, so it’s not a real race to worry about when it comes to casting. I was surprised that it wasn’t a Val-Zod story, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we still see him down the line.
Whoever WB chooses, I hope they take into careful consideration. There’s a lot of great black directors and actors, but we’ll see who’ll get chosen to do the job. Overall, I can’t wait to see more info for the Superman reboot.
