Let’s begin with a tale. Remember the days when Ryan Reynolds had a promising career. Remember when we found out that he was going to be playing both the Green Lantern and Deadpool, DC and Marvel characters respectively. How did that work out? It didn’t. Green Lantern was a major flop and Deadpool is still looking to be produce but I believe unlikely with Reynolds track record lately. Doing a live action superhero is tough to being with and trying to do two different characters from two different comic book companies is next to impossible to do. However, there is an exception – Chris Evans.
Those how know there IMDB history will know that Chris had played as Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) in the Fantastic Four several years ago. Later, Chris would play Steve Rogers (Captain America) in his own film as well-being part of The Avengers movie plus another solo sequel. Chris was able to pull this feat where Ryan could not. Remember, I said that one actor could not play to different characters yet Chris did but still both characters are part of the same Marvel universe. (Technically speaking, FF belongs to 20th Century and Captain America/Avengers belong to Disney/Marvel.) Don’t cross the streams.
Now, with this late news with Jordan. I have no problems with him as I love the movie Chronicle he was in. If you have not seen it, please check it out. Think of it as Heroes (season 1, remember the good and only season to the show) meets the Blair Witch Project. Jordan is cast as the new Johnny Storm; ok, and the rumor that he might be appearing in Batman vs. Superman or Man of Steel 2: Electric Boogaloo as one of two possible characters. Those two are John Stewart (The Green Lantern) or Victor Stone (Cyborg). Considering how testy geeks and nerds have been lately for the past couple of years, I think it would be best to have Jordan stick just to the FF reboot or get a lesser known or unknown actor to play in the Bats/Supes movie. This is becoming quite the clusterfuck.
Fresh off his official casting as Johnny Storm in the “Fantastic Four” reboot, actor Michael B. Jordan may have yet another superhero role up his sleeve: a small part in “Batman vs. Superman.”Latino Review reports that Jordan may be in the running for the unspecified role, which is set to be minimal in the “Man of Steel” sequel, but recur in later D.C. Comics films.”According to sources, the production is currently looking for a black actor in his early 20s who is also physically fit,” Latino Review writes, adding that they’ve heard Jordan has already met with director Zack Snyder about the part. The site points out that The Hollywood Reporter previously noted that Snyder doesn’t cast a wide net when looking for stars, but “target[s] actors from a narrow shortlist of those they want.”
