Superman reboot is coming soon at Warner Bros. studios with Ta-Nehisi Coates writing and J.J. Abrams producing the production.

According to Deadline, author Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing a Superman reboot feature film for Warner Bros. and DC, which J.J. Abrams will produce through his Bad Robot production company.

No plot and no cast attachments have not been announced. However, Deadline reports Henry Cavill is interested in reprising the role.

Coates recently worked with Ryan Cooler in the upcoming drama feature film Wrong Answer, which is based on the Atlanta cheating scandal, where a math theater alters students’ test scores to get the school more funding. Michael B. Jordan is attached to a star in the upcoming movie.

Coates is an interesting choice for a Superman movie. Coates is a national correspondent for The Atlantic and covers cultural, social, and political issues that impact African Americans. He has written for numerous news outlets, including The Village Voice, TIME, The New York Times Magazine, and Washington Post. He has also written several non-fiction books, including The Beautiful StruggleBetween the World and Me, and We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy

J.J. Abrams’s impact on the film industry goes without saying. Abrams signed a $500 million deal with WarnerMedia in September 2019. Since then, Bad Robot and Warner are developing a Justice League Dark Universe for film and TV. Justice League Dark first appeared in September 2011 and featured superheroes including John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Shade, the Changing Man, and Zatanna. 

In relevant news, Dwayne Johnson’s DC comic book movie Black Adam is now filming in Atlanta, Georgia. The movie was originally going to hit theaters on December 22, 201, with filming scheduled for July 2019. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, filming was delayed to April 2021 and it’s released pushed back to an unknown date. The movie will also release several other characters including Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Doctor Fate.
