According to Collider, Michael B. Jordan (“Creed”) is working on a mini-series about Black Superman.

The project is not related to the upcoming JJ Abrams film – the show for HBO Max is about Val-Zod, an alternate universe Superman who has appeared in DC comics. A screenwriter was found for the project, and Jordan himself can play the main role, but the latter is not yet certain.

According to sources, Jordan, who previously worked on the Black Superman story in a film format with Warner Bros., switched to the series due to his reluctance to get into the Clark Kent’s skin change scandal.

In other words, the Abrams project seems to be rethinking the story of Kent, and not Calvin Ellis, another black Superman from the comics.
