Superman Fan Art Imagines Michael B. Jordan as Val-Zod

Michael B. Jordan has been long rumored to be developing a Val-Zod-focused Superman project that was touted for an HBO Max release. But ever since it was revealed that James Gunn and Peter Safran were rebooting the DC Universe after The Flash, everything has been up in the air. Gunn is currently writing and directing Superman: Legacy, a film that will feature a new Clark Kent/Man of Steel. Jordan was recently doing the press run for Creed III, where he was asked about his Val-Zod/Superman project multiple times and didn’t give a real answer on the status of that project. An artist on Instagram who goes by the handle of @Subi.Ozil created a new design that shows how Michael B. Jordan could look as Val-Zod/Superman. In the fan art, Jordan gets this version of Superman’s iconic costume that’s in a silver, red, and blue color scheme. While Jordan hasn’t confirmed if Val-Zod is still in the works, it says a lot that he’s not really speaking about the project with the press.
