Next Reboot: New "Superman" Movie Announced

But it seems that Henry Cavill will no longer be part of it

A couple of days ago, the news that a new "Superman" movie is in the works wasn't met with enthusiasm among all fans. The main reason for this is that Henry Cavill, who is very popular with fans, will no longer play a role in the film. The main figure Clark Kent, who he embodied, will presumably not be featured in the new film either, because J.J. Abrams' latest project is apparently a reboot with a new story. Rumor has it that the comic book story about the African-American Superman Calvin Ellis could serve as the inspiration for the movie. Abrams says he is looking forward to a new, powerful and also touching "Superman" story, which he and screenwriter Ta-Nehisi Coates will bring to the big screen. Also Warner Chairman Toby Emmerich is convinced that the "Between the World and Me" author has the potential to give fans a new and exciting take on "Superman". Given Coate's previous works, which have been deeply critical of society, it seems likely that we will soon see the first African-American Superman in a film adaptation. What do you think? Does the "Superman" series really needs to get revamped with a new lead character, or would you rather have seen a sequel with Clark Kent and Henry Cavill?
