Actor Michael B Jordan has reportedly pitched an idea for a Superman movie to Warner Bros. The film, even if it gets greenlit, will not release before 2023.

American actor Michael B. Jordan pitched an idea for a new take on Superman to Warner Bros. This year the 32-year-old star’s production company, Outlier Society, signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros. in January, so it’s not all too shocking that the star would make the move from Marvel to DC.

Despite reports of a reboot, there is no script or director attached to Jordan’s pitch, Variety reports.

“It’s still mine. I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honest of the character I wasn’t to get into. I want to reflect the comic books.

“That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.” Cavill’s statement came as Warner Bros. has refrained from announcing any new films starring the British actor since its decision to revamp the plan for the DC Extended Universe following Justice League’s flop.
