Goodbye Eric Killmonger, hello Clark Kent!
According to Variety, the DC Universe isn't quite done with Superman just yet, as Black Panther alum Michael B. Jordan pitched an idea for a new take on the Man of Steel to Warner Bros. earlier this year. Jordan's production company, Outlier Society, signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros. in January, so it's not all too shocking that the star would make the move from Marvel to DC.
While Jordan did pitch his own take on the beloved caped superhero, the film—if it were to be greenlit—would reportedly not come close to a movie theater until 2023. This is due to both the Creed star's packed list of upcoming projects as well as Warner Bros.' list of many superhero films soon to be released. (Margot Robbie's Birds of Prey comes out Feb. 7, the Batman reboot starring Robert Pattinson, Paul Danno and Zoë Kravitz is underway and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters on June 5, just to name a few.)
