    Michael B. Jordan’s Black Superman Project Reportedly Underway for HBO Max

    Michael B. Jordan and his Black Superman project may have not gone anywhere a few years ago, but it looks like that is about to change as a new report claims that such a project is finally underway at HBO Max.Collider reports that Jordan and his production company, Outlier Society, are making a project surrounding Val-Zod. The company has hired a writer, but their identity is still a secret. It’s also unclear if it is a series or a film. Jordan’s role has not been identified either as he is set to produce, but it remains to be seen if he will star in it as well.RELATED: Superman Reboot in Development at WB With Ta-Nehisi Coates Writing & J.J. Abrams ProducingIt’s important to note this is separate from the film that Ta-Nehisi Coates and J.J. Abrams are working on. That film centers around a Black Kal-El, who is usually white. This HBO Max project with Jordan centers around Val-Zod, who is always Black.Jordan said he was flattered by the compliments of the wave of people wanting him to take the role of Kal-El for the Abrams and Coates film. He told TheHollywoodReporter that he would just be “watching on this one.” Jordan also tried to pitch a Black Superman project in 2019, but it didn’t get off the ground. BlackGirlNerds‘ sources say that Jordan was not interested in racebending Kal-El, hence the focus on a Superman that has always been Black.RELATED: DC Searching for Black Actor & Director for Upcoming Superman Film
