Never say never to Michael B. Jordan being involved with Superman as it seems he’s working on something with HBO Max at the moment.
According to a new report from Collider, Jordan and his production company, Outlier Society, are developing a project for HBO Max based on Val-Zod, one of the Black versions of Superman.
According to sources, a writer has been hired and is currently developing a script for the project. There is no confirmation as of yet if it will be a movie, limited series, or ongoing series. Jordan is not locked to star as of yet, but will serve as a producer.
This project is distinct and separate from the upcoming Black Superman project on the way from J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot company.
Val-Zod was the second Superman of Earth-2 and is one of the last Kryptonians. His entire history is different than Clark Kent’s with his parents having been executed by the High Court of Krypton. The focus of the Abrams project would be Clark Kent.
No word on a possible timeline for the Jordan project should it move forward.
