After speculation that the next actor to play “Superman” in the next “reboot” of the superhero, they assure that Warner continues with its search plans and the project continues.

“The Hollywood Reporter” reported that it is already a fact that the Warner Bros. company will make the new version of “Superman” and wants an African-American actor as the main character.

More details about the movie.

The news portal revealed that although JJ Abrams will be the producer of the new “Superman” movie, he will not be the one to direct it, so the company would also be looking for a black director.

Among the names that stand out are Steven Caple Jr. (Creed 2), Shaka King (LaZercism), JD Dillard (screenwriter for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), and Regina King (One Night in Miami).

Although it has not been revealed who would be the actor who plays the iron man, weeks ago it was rumored that Michael B. Jordan would be the star of this new era of “Superman”, but the idea that the leading man is an actor is not ruled out either unknown or that his career in Hollywood is short.

JJ Abrams stated last February that there is a new, more powerful, and moving story to tell about “Superman.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to work with Coates to bring it to the big screen. We are grateful to the Warner Bros. team for the opportunity, “he said.
