J.J. Abrams Reportedly Working On A New "Cape" Project At WB - Could It Be SUPERMAN?

A very reliable source has indicated that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams might be developing a new superhero project at WB, & there's a lot of speculation that it could be Superman.

There have been "rumors" (really just wishful thinking and speculation) doing the rounds for quite some time that J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Star Trek) might be in line to direct a new Superman movie for Warner Bros., but it looks like we may now have something more solid to go on.

While appearing on Barstool's "My Mom’s Basement" podcast, Variety's Justin Kroll had the following to say when the recent mega-deal between Abrams' production company Bad Robot and WarnerMedia was brought up: “I hope the new Warner Bros. deal leads to more stuff, maybe someone with a cape. We’ll see. That’s a hint.”

Of course, the Man of Steel is not the only DC Comics character with a cape, and we have been told that the studio is making Supergirl a priority moving forward (Batgirl is another possibility), but one can't help but wonder if this is a little tease that Abrams really is chatting with WB about taking the helm of a new Superman adventure.

Kroll knows his stuff, after all, and is often privy to details of major news stories long before they hit, so while we'll obviously have to take this as a rumor for the time being, it is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
