A new concept design shows Black Panther and Fantastic Four star Michael B Jordan suiting up as Superman to replace Henry Cavill.
Rumors have long swirled over whether Henry Cavill would return to play Superman again in the DC Extended Universe, and although the British actor previously spoke out regarding his potential return there’s been no actual confirmation that he will. A recent report revealed that J.J. Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates are working on a reboot of the character, supposedly eyeing up a Black lead for the new film. Since Michael B Jordan had already expressed an interest in the role, many fans are desperate to see him step into the Superman costume.
Whether he’d play Val-Zod, the Superman from Earth-2 or if he’d just be a reimagined Clark Kent remains to be seen, but this design from artist ‘barrett.digital’ on Instagram gives Michael B Jordan an intricately designed Val-Zod costume in the style of the DCEU. The lighter blue, silver cape and red details certainly makes this Superman cape stand-out from the typical costumes worn by Henry Cavill and other stars over the years. Check out the artwork below.
