Superman regresará al cine de la mano de J. J Abrams y Warner Bros.

Ta-Nehisi Coates es el guionista del proyecto que aún se encuentra en fase temprana y se desconoce si Henry Cavill volverá a interpretarlo.

Los estudios Warner Bros. y la franquicia DC Cómics trabajan en una nueva película de Superman que producirá J.J. Abrams, director de la última entrega de Star Wars.

“Espero contribuir de manera significativa al legado del héroe más emblemático de Estados Unidos”, aseguró el escritor en un comunicado.

Las últimas películas protagonizadas exclusivamente por Superman son Superman Returns y Man of Steel, de 2006 y 2013, cuando el estudio de Hollywood recuperó al personaje estrella de la serie de cintas estrenadas en los años 1980.

Cavill interpretó al superhéroe en Justice League y Batman vs Superman, que son filmes con un reparto coral que incluye a otras figuras del universo DC Cómics.

“Hay una nueva, poderosa y conmovedora historia de Superman que aún no se ha contado. No podríamos estar más emocionados de trabajar con el brillante Coates”, insistió J.J. Abrams en otro escrito.

El año pasado Abrams fichó por la franquicia de superhéroes para producir una serie de DC Cómics para HBO Max, emulando el éxito que Disney ha cosechado al estrenar ficciones televisivas derivadas de Marvel y Star Wars.

‘Superman’ Reboot In The Works At Warner Bros With Ta-Nehisi Coates Writing, J.J. Abrams Producing

Deadline has confirmed that author Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing a Superman reboot feature for Warner Bros and DC, which J.J. Abrams is producing under his Bad Robot label.

Hannah Minghella will serve as producer. No plot yet and no attachments despite the fact that we’ve heard how Henry Cavill is eager to get back into the cape.

Coates is attached to a Ryan Coogler directed drama feature entitled Wrong Answer about a math teacher in Atlanta who is scandalized when he looks to get funding for his school by altering his students’ test scores. Michael Jordan is attached to Wrong Answer.

As the national correspondent for The Atlantic, Coates covered cultural, social and political issues, specifically that of African Americans and white supremacy. His 2014 cover story for that publication, “The Case for Reparations,” started a national conversation on the subject. It was named the “Top Work of Journalism of the Decade” by New York University’s Carter School of Journalism Institute.

Coates has also written for The Village Voice, TIME and has contributed to the New York Times Magazine, Washington Post and more.

His non-fiction books include The Beautiful Struggle, Between the World and Me, and We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy. Between the World and Me won the 2015 National Book Award for Nonfiction.

Of note, Coates has written a Black Panther and a Captain America series for Marvel Comics. Coates received a special thanks credit on Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther.

Abrams has a big half billion deal over at WarnerMedia which he closed in September 2019.
