Superman: New DC Film Will Have Black Director And Protagonist


Superman: The next Superman film will have a black director and protagonist, according to Warner Bros. intentions. Pictures released recently. It is worth mentioning that, in February of this year, the studio hired the acclaimed writer Ta-Nehisi Coates to develop the production narrative, which will be led by J.J. Abrams.

In this reboot of the DC hero, the plan will be to present the world with a new approach to Superman, perhaps marked by racial issues present in society. In this way, Abrams would only be on the production team, leaving the director’s place for some (or some) filmmaker who is more coherent for the subject.

The project is still in the initial planning stage, given that the Coates script is due to be delivered only at the end of 2021. However, Warner Bros. Pictures already shows a certain excitement with the new film by one of his most famous heroes.

Superman: established filmmakers are tipped to direct the new DC hero movie

According to the Hollywood Reporter, names like Ryan Coogler of Black Panther and Barry Jenkins of Moonlight have been singled out as some of the most highly rated filmmakers to receive an invitation from Warner Bros. Pictures in this endeavor.

The site still mentions Steven Caple Jr, JD Dillard, Regina King and Shaka King as candidates who would be targeted by the company, but as a second option. The name of Ava DuVernay, who is currently developing a series about Naomi, DC’s new heroine, was not remembered as a possibility.

On social media, audiences have been speculating about the inclusion of Michael B. Jordan in the cast of the new film. Nothing is certain so far, besides the production will move further away from the recent releases of Zack Snyder, such as the Justice League, which won a new version made available on HBO Max.

Let’s wait for news!
