Previous rumors suggested Michael B. Jordan had circled the role.
Michael B Jordan suits up as the Val-Zod version of Superman to replace Henry Cavill in a new concept design for the DC Extended Universe movies.
It’s been three years since audiences last saw Henry Cavill’s Superman grace the big screen, and many are wondering whether it’s time to introduce a new version of the DC Comics hero in his absence. That doesn’t necessarily mean recasting Kal-El, but introducing Val-Zod would be an excellent way of pushing Superman in a fresh direction. And there’s perhaps no one better to take on the role than Michael B Jordan. Back in 2019, the star discussed whether the world is ready for a Black Superman, saying that he would approach a role like that with “great care and caution.”
When Michael B Jordan was asked about the rumors that suggested he’ll play Superman in the DCEU, he noted that he’s got used to the constant headlines suggesting that he’s taking on fan-favorite characters. He didn’t rule the role out, but did explain that he’s a fan of the comics. Digital artist Savagecomics on Instagram has shared a concept design that imagines Michael B Jordan as Superman, giving him the blue, silver and red costume that Val-Zod has worn ever since his 2014 debut. Take a look at Michael B Jordan as Superman below.
