Default Next Superman Movie to Have Black Lead Actor, Director, Scriptwriter

Quote:
Next Superman Movie to Have Black Lead Actor, Director, Scriptwriter

The next "Superman" movie will feature a Black actor in the lead role, a Black director at the helm, and a Black scriptwriter.

The film marks the first time a Black Superman will appear on the big screen, the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

However, a Black character called Calvin Ellis was first introduced in 2009 series Final Crisis 7, as a Superman from an alternative universe. While the more widely known Superman alias was mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent, Ellis is the President of the United States on "Earth 23."

Comic book writer Grant Morrison has said he was inspired by former President Barack Obama when he created the character.

"As I was writing it, I heard Obama making a joke about being born on the planet Krypton and being sent to Earth by his father Jor-El to save the world," Morrison told the Daily Record in 2009.

"I thought it would be a fitting end to all the darkness in America recently. All the comics have been dealing with darkness recently and, having defeated evil, it's now time to celebrate."

Ta-Nehisi Coates, the acclaimed novelist who expanded the world of Wakanda for Marvel comics, is writing the script and is expected to turn it in to Warner Bros. Pictures in December.

Coates is best known as the author of bestsellers, including "Between the World and Me," "The Beautiful Struggle," and "We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy."


But there is no indication it will be the Ellis version of Superman who appears in Coates' script.

The Hollywood Reporter reported there are several candidates for director and star, but neither has been announced.

It has also been suggested Warner Bros. could pick a relatively unknown name for the new film – as they did when Brandon Routh donned the cape for "Superman Returns" in 2006.

Previous "Superman" actors include Christopher Reeve, Tom Welling in "Smallville," and Dean Cain in "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," along with Henry Cavill in the 2017 film, Justice League.

Potential directors for the film include Barry Jenkins, Ryan Coogler, Steven Caple Jr., J.D. Dillard, Regina King,m and Shaka King, according to the Daily Mail.

"To be invited into the DC Extended Universe by Warner Bros., DC Films and Bad Robot is an honor," Coates said in a statement. "I look forward to meaningfully adding to the legacy of America's most iconic mythic hero."

Since 2016, he has also penned the Black Panther comics for Marvel, with artist Brian Stelfreeze, a run concluding with a final issue in April. He was thanked in the credits of Ryan Coogler's 2018 film, "Black Panther."

"Ta-Nehisi Coates' 'Between the World and Me' opened a window and changed the way many of us see the world," Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures, said. "We're confident that his take on Superman will give fans a new and exciting way to see the Man of Steel."

"There is a new, powerful and moving Superman story yet to be told," J.J. Abrams of Bad Robot said, the Daily Mail reported. "We couldn't be more thrilled to be working with the brilliant Mr. Coates to help bring that story to the big screen."

We'll see how that works out in a movie. I have no idea if or how successful the comics were, but i'm sure our hardcore dc-fans will/can tell.

If they can build a movie that's close to the quality of Black Panther, there's no reason why it shouldn't be well received.

My only disclaimer regarding my own opinion is that I don't care about 'canon'. It's entertainment, and I'll enjoy or criticize it as such.

as i've said, we'll have to wait and see. Depending on the actor it might be entertaining (or not). As for canon, well, that's another story....

To be fair, there IS source material that this happens so its not one of those "must make white guy black becuase whitewashing!" situations. Except there is the possibility they might not use black superman as the source...in which case they are just turning superman black.....which is a whack decision.

However in the grand scheme of things, was this black superman part of the overall DC universe? Was it a one-off? Cuz they'll have a helluva time trying to explain both black superman and white superman in the same universe without some parallel universe easy-button explanation.

IT happened with Nick fury in Marvel, except whoever made the black Nick Fury actually drew him just like Samuel L. Jackson so it was easy to just say "lets use Samual L. Jackson" as Nick Fury. But Nick Fury was always Nick Fury and they had 2 versions of him...and they chose the one that was easy to cast cuz...well...he was easy to cast lol.

I wonder in time if there is going to be a phenomenon called "hollywood blackwashing" because they're making all the roles that were either neutral or white to begin with and turn them all black....or if that will be one of those "that's the way its supposed to be!" because now whites are descriminated against but that's ok because they've been oppressing forever.....

Won't watch. Not because it's a black Superman, but because DC films have been largely garbage and not worth my time. Besides, the timing of this movie smacks of pandering.

But how will they find a young black actor who looks exactly like Christopher Reeves?

Plus i dont think they bow to pressure from the SJW because i dont think they care about the SJW nor do they have SJW (to the extent of the North America) in their market.

Nor should they care about SJW. SJW are a cancer on society and if India can avoid that, more power to them.

They do have Val-Zod aka Calvin Ellis from the comics. It looks like they're not going to use that.

Too bad they couldn't avoid covid

I hope they do something cool with this rather than just "hey, superman is black now". The Miles Morales Spider-Man was an awesome way to change it up, so hopefully they get creative!

Yeah its fine if they make a black superman who was a black superman, and not turn the white superman into a black superman just because.

But knowing hollywood, they have some kind of non-white quota to fill so they try to turn traditionally non-black characters into black characters for no good reason.

But if they want a Black Superman, I vote Terry Crews lol...but he might not be serious enough for the role.
then Idris Elba...but he might be too suave for the role lol.

:\ there is nothing about Kal-El/Clark Kent's story that is fundamentally or quintessentially white. If you made his character black, it wouldn't really change anything. His story was always allegory about an immigrant who saves everyone.

That said, I wish they would go the Calvin route. As I'd like a different story instead of the same story again.

It could be somewhere around cancel culture via whining a white guy is black now and the great travesty that it is. Story ruined now.

I mean ****... lets see I'm only 36 and I've watch this story live action 5 times now?

Christopher Reeve/Brandon Routh
Dean Cain
Henry Cavill
Tom Welling
Tyler Hoechlin

Like just stop it already. Tell me a different story, we don't need Kal-El/Clark Kent redone again.

Wha? Having Indian actors star in movies made in India? Unpossible!

Who's to say it has anything to do with Kal-El/Clark?

There are black Kryptonians in the DC comics.


My only issue is with calling him Superman, because Superman is Kal-El/Clark or his son. No the evil son but the good one. Depending on which timeline / Universe you follow


Pick a ****ing Universe and stick too it.... This is what ****s everything up.

did you hear that Tom Welling is willing to suit up for Supes in the up coming Batman with Robert Pattinson? Which would further muddle things up considering his Superman already played out in the Arrowverse's Crisis on Infinite Earths.

WB and DC need to either get their **** together or just stop. Because this is getting to stupid.

Feel like you could have packed at least 10 more SJW's in there to really drive the point home.
