In an EXCLUSIVE interview with CinePOP, Michael B. Jordan (‘Creed’) commented on the possibility of experiencing the first black Superman in theaters.
The actor’s name began to be linked to that of the hero after his meeting with Warner Bros., but apparently negotiations did not progress.
He revealed that there were other franchises and characters he could play – and he appears to have sent the studio a message.
“I don’t know what’s really going on [o Superman Negro] in particular. But our desire and the desire of all is to see black characters in heroic roles. Representativeness is important … There are so many opportunities with different franchises, different characters that never saw the light of day. And there are some who should be where they are. So let’s see how things go. “He said.
In an interview with presenter Oprah Winfrey in 2019, Jordan revealed which version of Man of Steel he’d like to experience in theaters.
He said he would rather bring Calvin Ellis (Earth-23 Superman) to life than play Clark Kent:
“It’s complicated. I hate to be an entrepreneur and understand both sides of it. There is a huge advantage in that, but being under that microscope and being compared to so many different versions of Superman… I would love to. do something original. I’d be Calvin Ellis. There’s another Superman from Earth-23. A version […] in another dimension that is black in the comics … It exists.
