    He's always been a superhero to me. ❤️

    According to multiple reports, the actor is developing a limited HBO Max series featuring Val-Zod, one of the last Kryptonians and the second Superman.

    Val-Zod is part of the DC multiverse and is a Kryptonian from Earth 2.

    Buzz about the series is coming on the heels of Warner Bros announcing that they are also working on a Black Superman project.

    It will be scripted by Ta-Nehisi Coates and produced by JJ Abrams and his company, Bad Robot.

    Other projects HBO Max has in the works include spinoffs of The Suicide Squad and The Batman, as well as a Green Lantern series.

    Michael hasn't officially confirmed his involvement in the Val-Zod series, but I hope he does soon so I can finally become way too emotionally invested in it.
