Just read a Michael B. Jordan as Superman rumor.— Tom Taylor (@TomTaylorMade) September 12, 2018
Nice. @NicolaScottArt and I actually talked about him a lot when we created the Superman of Earth 2, Val-Zod.

Of course, some comic books fans had to rain on the parade, insisting that Jordan can’t be Superman because he’s Black.
my only take on casting Michael B Jordan as Superman is that the most sexual thing I can imagine Superman doing is holding hands whereas I want to do unspeakable things with Michael B Jordan— Brandy Jensen (@BrandyLJensen) September 12, 2018
If Michael B Jordan really gets the role of Superman I will never watch another D.C. movie again. That's insane. People are so concerned with making things "racially equal" that they r ruining shit. Superman is not black. End of story. Imagine a white dude playing Blade? Like no.— Travis Turbe (@Turbe_travis) September 12, 2018
While we aren’t sure if Jordan even wants to appear in yet another superhero flick, if it happens, we know he’s up to the task.
Michael B Jordan is facing tons of racism, covert & overt racism, and other BS because of a dumb rumor regarding the DCEU. Y'all worship anything white/str8 but disrespect and devalue non-white talent.— Jason (King T'Challa Carol Danvers rights) (@EscaflowneClown) September 12, 2018
