Ta-Nehisi Coates and J.J. Abrams are Working on a Superman Reboot
Deadline is reporting that there’s a Superman reboot in the works under the guidance of Ta-Nehisi Coates and J.J. Abrams. Coates is writing the script while Abrams is producing under his Bad Robot label. Hannah Minghella will serve as producer.
Details are scarce, really non-existent, and it’s unknown if Superman will be recast or if Henry Cavill will return. Cavill has expressed interest in reprising the role.
Coates is a celebrated and award-winning author who has covered cultural, social, and political issues. He’s also written numerous comics for Marvel including a current run on Black Panther and Captain America.
J.J. Abrams has been tied to Warner Bros. and DC for a while now and is reportedly developing Justice League Dark for film and television.
