Back in 2019, there were reports that Warner Bros. was looking for a new actor to replace Henry Cavill as the new Man of Steel. The studio allegedly met up with Michael B. Jordan to discuss the possibility of the actor introducing either Earth-2’s Val-Zod or a new version of Kal-El as the Black Superman. Now reporting suggesting that the new Superman movie is being set up as a “Black Superman story.”
THR is reporting that the studio has been contemplating the idea for quite a while. Also states that it is possible that the studio could return to Michael B. Jordan to star down the line.” So far we know that Henry Cavill will return as the Man of Steel and if this is the case then Warner Bros and DC could be looking to have two Superman in the DC Universe like Marvel & Sony with Peter Park and Miles Morales being their current Spider-Man.
Having two Man of Steel will really not be a surprise since there’s already a possibility for the company to have two Batman and Joker adaptations for the beginning since Robert Pattinson’s Batman and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker are from a different universe.
