During an interview with CinemaBlend to discuss his new film “Creed III,” actor Michael B. Jordan was blocked from answering a question about the long-rumored Superman Val-Zod project he’s been connected with.
When the interviewer attempted to sneak in a question about his involvement in the HBO Max series focusing on Val-Zod, an alternative version of Superman from the DC Multiverse, one of Jordan’s PR people stepped in to shut down the question saying, “We can’t talk about that, sorry.”
Jordan, who initially acknowledged the question, has a laugh after the interruption telling the interviewer, “It was a noble attempt”.
The “Earth 2” Superman of the DC Multiverse, Val-Zod is a black Kryptonian who, like Kal-El, found refuge on earth.
In May 2021, when asked about his connection with a Val-Zod Superman project, Michael B. Jordan told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m flattered that people have me in that conversation. It’s definitely a compliment, but I’m just watching on this one.”
Then in July 2021, Collider.com reported that Michael B. Jordan and his production company Outlier Society were working with HBO Max to produce a TV series focused on Val-Zod.
Whether such a project is still in development remains to be seen in light of the recent “Superman: Legacy” film announcement from DC Studios.
