This would be a very progressive move on the part of the DC Universe, and a move that will open so many more doors for African American talent. Mr. Jordan is going to crush this role.
While Jordan did pitch his own take on the beloved caped superhero, the film—if it were to be greenlit—would reportedly not come close to a movie theater until 2023. This is due to both the star’s packed list of upcoming projects as well as Warner Bros.’ list of many superhero films soon to be released. (Margot Robbie‘s comes out Feb. 7, the Batman reboot starring Robert Pattinson, Paul Danno and Zoë Kravitz is underway and Gal Gadot‘s hits theaters on June 5, just to name a few.)
