Michael B. Jordan has commented on his being rumored to take on the role of DC’s most powerful hero.

The past few weeks saw widespread rumors of the Creed actor taking over the iconic role of Superman after as reports indicate that Warner Bros. met with him about the issue.

The actor responded to the speculations in a chat with MTV News, stating that he has been rumored to play several characters but that anything he actually chooses to do has got to be done the right way.

Honestly, I’ve been rumored to play Morpheus, to Superman, to Duck Tales reboot, to Power Rangers, and everything in between. So it’s like, I’m kinda used to rumors that I’m playing something. But, anything that I do dive in to has gotta be done the right way. It has to be full of authenticity.

I’m a fan of comic books, you know. I understand, you know, the fans being upset at, “Oh no, why are they changing this and why are they changing that?” I would feel the same way about certain things. So just know, if I ever were to dabble in anything, it would be authentic and something I feel like people would really support.Michael B. Jordan

The above response clearly shows that for now, Jordan hasn’t been confirmed to play Superman and with Cavill’s recent statement about him still being linked to the part, nothing is definite at this point.


Jordan would sure make a unique Superman if cast in the role. He would be the first black to play the last son of Krypton and if Black Panther is any indication, a lot of movie fans would love the choice.

But for now let hope that if there is any casting call for a Superman replacement, we would be the first to know.
