Michael B Jordan May Be Working On HBO Max Superman Project - Report
The Creed star and his production company, Outlier Society, are reportedly producing a Val-Zod series for HBO Max.
Michael B. Jordan is a busy man these days. When he's not making fun of himself in the new Space Jam movie, the Creed star is looking out for new projects to manage, and it looks like he might have found his next big thing.
Collider is reporting that Jordan and his production company, Outlier Society, are developing a television miniseries about Val-Zod, Earth-2's Superman, who debuted during the New 52 era of DC Comics. Created by Tom Taylor and Nicola Scott, Val-Zod is one of the last Kryptonians of his universe and the second to use the mantle of Superman.
Collider's sources say that Outlier Society has hired a writer, who is currently working on the script and will be a limited series for HBO Max. It's also being said that Jordan will produce and possibly even star in, though no official word on any casting.
It's been long rumored that Jordan had been offered the role of Superman, even possibly taking over from current Man of Steel Henry Cavill, but he's shot those down numerous times. While Jordan has denied saying he'll be Clark Kent, bringing Val-Zod to the small screen is still very much up in the air.
If this project goes through, it would be another addition to what Warner Bros has in store for HBO Max in adapting more than 15 DC Comics franchises they're looking to kick off.
