Today we heard that there is a new one SupermanThe movie is being made and Henry Cavill is in talks for the movie. This may not mean Cavill is playing “Man of Steel”: rumors have it that the lead role in the movie will go to Michael B.
Michael B. Jordan, better known as ao Dogma at Black Panther, I tried one before SupermanFilm for show in the capital. In this movie, he won’t be playing the original superhero Cal-El / Clark Kent, but he won’t be playing Superman from another dimension: Calvin Ellis.
Will audiences be introduced to Black Superman? This is the intent and thing that the studio has been trying to find a way for months if not a year or two, according to sources. https://t.co/X8RTtSJ7EK

Calvin Ellis: Superman is my master!
Ellis was Superman in the comics and the President of the United States. This version of Superman It was a nod to President Barack Obama, and in some comics he also fought entire wars on America’s behalf (alone). Handy, like this head of state!
The article continues after the announcement
Since his company intends to talk about it, Black Superman is nothing new. Calvin Ellis is Superman from Earth-23

If the rumors are true, it means DC (like Marvel) is taking a “multi-verse” approach, with different versions of superheroes living in different dimensions.
I remember there were rumors way back about Michael B. Jordan taking the role. With this announcement, that may be the case. I’m frustrated if it’s Calvin Ellis or even if they make Clark Kent black. MBJ will kill the role! A man who exudes charisma and kindness, an amazing actor https://t.co/hNM8DxDi7c pic.twitter.com/V562Ep1vMW

Although Henry Cavill may not be the protagonist in the novel SupermanThe movie, he can continue to play the “original” Superman. Cavell still appears to be talking to DC, and with good reason. A movie in which the two supernatural characters meet is a possibility (see for example Spider-Man inside the Spider World), Or the two copies could coexist.
