    Default ‘Superman’ movie reboot with Ta-Nehisi Coates writing, J.J Abrams producing

    From Deadline:

    "Deadline has confirmed that Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing a Superman reboot feature for Warner Bros and DC, which J.J. Abrams is producing under his Bad Robot label.

    Hannah Minghella will serve as producer. No plot yet and no attachments despite the fact that we’ve heard how Henry Cavill is eager to get back into the cape.

    Coates is attached to a Ryan Coogler directed drama feature entitled Wrong Answer about a math teacher in Atlanta who is scandalized when he looks to get funding for his school by altering his students’ test scores. Michael Jordan is attached to Wrong Answer.

    Abrams has a big half billion deal over at WarnerMedia which he closed in September 2019."

    Superman's going to be black and I'm here for it.

    This is the most exciting Superman news in years.

    Let's see, how did the DCEU do in accomplishing the Superman checklist?

    [x] Origin story
    [x] He dies
    [x] Evil

    Yup, a reboot is past due.

    About the writer of the project:

    "Ta-Nehisi Paul Coates is an American author and journalist. Coates gained a wide readership during his time as a national correspondent at The Atlantic, where he wrote about cultural, social, and political issues, particularly regarding African Americans and white supremacy. He has also written a Black Panther series and a Captain America series for Marvel Comics."

    Any chance this is going to be the Michael B Jordan Superman movie rumored a while back?

    It sounds like we're getting a black Superman. If it isn't Val Zod and is instead the main DCU Superman with a race change, I'm afraid there's going to be more backlash than ever before that will plague the movie from start to finish.

    Eh, Cap and BP have some meandering. BP is really controversial for its sparing use of a good Tchalla.

    Regardless of their comics, which I mostly like from what I've read between them, I think these two make a great team. Coates is highly intelligent and I think Abrams is a fun director. If we had Armie Hammer it'd be my dream team lol

    Are you saying he wants to do Clark and racebend him? He's not interested in Val-Zod/Calvin Ellis?

    Zack Snyder's Superman crashed and burned so we could get Coates Superman.

    After Wonder Woman 1984 I gave up on the DCEU but with this and the Supergirl news I'm back on board the hype train.

    No Arimie Hammer unless the villain is going to be a cannibalistic white man.

    Are you referring to Clark Kent or Val-Zod/President Superman?

    Regardless, my first priority is for them to get THE Superman, the "iconic mythic hero" right and everything else can come after.
