Television and Hollywood have long been spaces we prominently reserve for whites. The main characters and stories revolve around issues, situations, and white customs, but little by little we began to see some changes. Michael B. Jordan will be one of the drivers of this modification with his risky new production.
The actor in charge of Adonis Creed will be part of a new project for HBO Max that will have a black Superman as the central role. It is a limited series and the development would be in charge of Jordan and his company Outlier Society to premiere on the aforementioned platform. At the moment they have hired a scriptwriter who is in charge of the plot but his identity has not been revealed.
Information about this new series is still scarce, but according to Collider with his exclusive, the actor from “Black Panther” intends to tell the story of Val-Zod, a Kryptonian who is sent to Earth before that his planet was destroyed and upon arrival, he is locked up in Arkham Asylum by Terry Sloan. It is not yet clear if Jordan will serve as producer or we will also be able to see him on camera.
Meanwhile, as previously known, JJ Abrams and his production company Bad Robot are in the production of a movie about a black Superman. The rumors were close to the idea that Michael B. Jordan could act in this film but the actor himself has already taken care to deny them.
A root change
This project is more than ambitious and interesting. The truth is that the world of superheroes has been ruled by white men and little by little we begin to see the inclusion of women and other ethnic groups. Michael B. Jordan would go on to become a great pioneer in portraying the black man of steel, something that has never been seen in the movies and that is sure to generate a stir and also a great adhesion.
