If Michael B Jordan has his way, then we might just get to see the first coloured Superman soon! The American actor has reportedly pitched an idea for a new take on `Superman` to Warner Bros.

This year, the 32-year-old star`s production company, `Outlier Society,` signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros. in January, so it`s not all too shocking that the star would make the move from Marvel to DC. Jordan has featured in a prominent role in Marvel's smash hit 'Black Panther'. 

While Jordan did pitch his own take on the beloved caped superhero, the film--if it were to be greenlit--would reportedly not hit the theatres before 2023. If the film does happen, Jordan will be the first non-white actor to play the superhero. 

This is because Jordan is busy with the list of upcoming projects as well as Warner Bros.` Despite reports of a reboot, there is no script or director attached to Jordan`s pitch.
