Breaking news this evening as it has been confirmed that a new Superman movie is in development at Warner Bros. Pictures. The studio has tapped author Ta-Nehisi Coates to pen the script with J.J. Abrams company, Bad Robot, producing.

The project is said to be in very early development. There is no director attached to the project at this time and the search for an actor to play Kal-El / Superman has not yet begun. There is no official confirmation on Henry Cavill’s status as the Man of Steel just yet.

“To be invited into the DC Extended Universe by Warner Bros., DC Films and Bad Robot is an honor,” Coates said in a statement. “I look forward to meaningfully adding to the legacy of America’s most iconic mythic hero.”

“There is a new, powerful and moving Superman story yet to be told. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with the brilliant Mr. Coates to help bring that story to the big screen, and we’re beyond thankful to the team at Warner Bros. for the opportunity,” Abrams stated.

“Ta-Nehisi Coates’s ‘Between the World and Me’ opened a window and changed the way many of us see the world,” said Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “We’re confident that his take on Superman will give fans a new and exciting way to see the Man of Steel.”

Amongst his credits Coates has written comic books for both Black Panther and Captain America at Marvel. More on this story as it develops.
