Review of 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.

It’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.
