In an interview with Jake’s Takes, Jordan was asked if it was true that he would play Superman. “I hear the rumors and all of that and I take it as a compliment. I appreciate that people think of me that way in these roles. I don’t have anything else to say about him, but whatever or if he really is, I think it would be an interesting thing.”
Recently, the actor gave another interview to Cinepop and made similar statements. “I don’t know. I don’t really know what’s going on with this particular thing, but I think everyone’s desire to see black characters in protagonist roles is very important. Acting is important.”
