Michael B. Jordan is about to take Superman to new heights.

According to multiple reports, Jordan and his production company Outlier Society are working on a Black Superman project, which will air on HBO Max. 

There aren’t many details about the project, but Collider claims a writer is working on the show that will more than likely be a limited series. The story will reportedly focus on the character Val-Zod, an existing Black version of the Superman character from the DC comics.

It’s not known if Jordan will play Superman.
