Por lo que he leído, es un personaje que ya existe en los comics, pertenece a otro universo, o algo así.
Who is Calvin Ellis, the Black Superman?
Calvin Ellis is Kal-El from Earth-23.
His first appearance came in Final Crisis #7 by Grant Morrison and Doug Mahnke. Calvin Ellis is Superman, and he is also the President of the United States on Earth-23.
Calvin Ellis was a name chosen by Alan Moore in 1985 as an alias and was revived for this character.
Just like Clark Kent, Calvin landed on Earth as a baby after Krypton exploded. He was taken in and raised by a poor couple who raised him to be kind and stand up for himself and what is right in his life.
He became Superman and was an inspiration for all heroes on this Earth, helping form the Justice League and eventually becoming the U.S. President to try to help the country as a politician as well as a superhero.
The reason most believe this might be Calvin Ellis is due to past comments by actor Michael B. Jordan.
When asked if he would play Superman, he hesitated and said he would never try to play Clark Kent but would play a Black Superman if it was Calvin Ellis.
“I’ll be Calvin Ellis,” Jordan said. “There’s another version of Superman in another dimension that is Black already in the comic books that exist, and I think the comic book purists can accept that more than me being Clark Kent from Kansas. That’s a different thing.”
No estaría nada mal darle un nuevo enfoque a algo tan trillado. Y quizá sería un buen espaldarazo para el actor, hacen falta caras nuevas, joder.
Pero no estamos en los noventa, así que nada. Obviamente en ese guión todo va a ser adoctrinamiento para que reflexionemos sobre el mal que causa el hombre blanco.
