The studies Warner Bros. and the DC Comics franchise are working on a new “Superman” movie to be produced by the director of the latest “Star Wars” installment, J.J. Abrams.
The return to the big screen of the mythical superhero is still in an early stage and It is unknown if Henry Cavill will reprise him, although the actor has expressed his willingness to participate in a new installment that Ta-Nehisi Coates is already writing, confirmed the specialized publication Shadow and Act this Friday.
“I look forward to making a significant contribution to the legacy of America’s most iconic hero.”, Assured the writer in a statement.
The latest movies exclusively starring Superman are “Superman Returns” and “Man of Steel”, 2006 and 2013, when the Hollywood studio recovered the star character of the series of films released in the 1980s.
Cavill has continued to embody the superhero in “Justice League” and “Batman vs Superman”, which are films with a choral cast that includes other figures from the DC Comics universe.
“There is a new, powerful and moving ‘Superman’ story that has yet to be told. We couldn’t be more excited to work with the brilliant Coates, ”insisted J.J. Abrams in another writing.
Last year Abrams signed with the superhero franchise to produce a DC Comics series for HBO Max, emulating the success that Disney has had in premiering television fiction derived from Marvel and Star Wars.
