The site is reporting that they are in the hunt for a new actor to play Superman. One of the actors executives have discussed is Michael B Jordan, who, amazingly enough, has already appeared in two superhero movies. (He played the Human Torch in the 2015 mess FANT4STIC; and he was Killmonger in Black Panther.)

However, any news of a new Superman seems premature. According to Deadline, DC is focusing on a Supergirl movie. The script for that is being written by Oren Uziel.
