Michael B. Jordan has become a potential candidate to be the next Superman and artists are already creating images of him in the costume.
Is Henry Cavill going to be reprising his role as the Man of Steel? We don't know but the story must go on and at some point Warner Bros will have to look for another potential star to put on the red cape. At the moment there have been no official names but Creed and Marvel’s Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan is apparently a candidate.
While speaking to Oprah about the rumors about his role as the next Superman he said that he was flattered but “Just being under that microscope of being picked apart and compared to so many different versions of Superman, I would rather do something original."
Jordan is reportedly eyeing the role of Calvin Ellis, who hails from Earth 23 and is the cousion of a Kryptonian named Kalel. Yeah, he got some similarities to Superman and may just be wearing a red cape after all. We have no idea which way Warner Bros. is going to go with regards to another Man of Steel film but thanks to some artists we can get a look at Jordan as Superman.
We don't really know if Henry Cavill is actually done playing Superman. There have been reports that he is done but back in December Aquaman star Jason Momoa told us that the reports were not true and that Henry Cavill "loves the character'. So should we believe Mamoa? I mean, he is co-stars with Cavill so he should be a credible source. Whatever the case may be, let's hope that we can get some official news soon. Based on the pictures above, I think the Superman franchise will be in good hands with Michael B. Jordan. What do you think?
