Is Superman in Michael B. Jordan’s future?

According to Variety, DC Films isn’t quite finished with Superman, and are looking to re-cast the role. 

The iconic character has been rebooted two different times in the last 13 years once with Brandon Routh in Superman Returns and later with Henry Cavill in Man of Steel, but DC Films are still looking to revive the character and make it relevant to modern audiences — in comes a high-profile talent to star as the iconic character. 

According to the outlet, it was Jordan himself who pitched an idea for a new take on the Man of Steel to Warner Bros. earlier this year. But even if things go forward, we won’t get to see Jordan as the caped superhero anytime before 2023. 

There’s no word on a script or director attached to the pitch.
