According to reports, a new Superman movie is well in the works over at Warner Bros. Pictures. Ta-Nehisi Coates will be the writer with J.J. Abrams’ and Hannah Minghella as its current producers. The project is in early development.
Ta-Nehisi Coates is an author and has written books published by Marvel Comics for characters like Black Panther and Captain America, so the comic book genre is not something new for this writer. Coates has also received special credit for movies like “Black Panther,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”.] Coates was also a contributor to publications such as The New York Times and The Washington Post.
As Deadline had reported in January 2020, Bad Robot and Warner are developing the Justice League Dark Universe for film and TV. There had been rumours that J.J. Abrams was also interested in the Man of Steel and this is not the first time Abrams has tried to bring the character to the big screen. This would be the next standalone Superman movie since 2013’s “Man of Steel,” directed by Zack Snyder.
Does this mean that Henry Cavill would be back as Superman?
Fans, and the actor himself, are very enthusiastic about the characters return to the big screen. Rumors have been floating around that Cavill had been pitching ideas for a new Superman title (or titles) to Warner. As of right now, there is no official confirmation that the English actor is returning to the role.
