Zack Snyder welcomes first Black Superman, says It’s long overdue
Zack Snyder has said he is all here for the upcoming Superman reboot that will star a Black actor in the lead. Metro reports that It’s been confirmed JJ Abrams is working on the next installment of the DCEU superhero movie and will likely cast an African-American actor to replace Henry Cavill, who was the most recent Superman.
Asked about the new direction of the franchise, Justice League director Snyder told Radio Times and other publications: ‘My feeling is that I love JJ [Abrams], I love what he’s done in the past. I’m interested to see what happens, it’s a bold and cool and probably long overdue move.’
Snyder, who said he loves Henry Cavill as Superman, explained that he is not really involved in any of the decision-making at Warner Brothers in any way, so he is just waiting to see what they do with this and how it manifests itself.
