Deadline has confirmed that Darnell Metayer & Josh Peters will be writing Val Zod, the HBO Max adaptation that Michael B. Jordanís Outlier Society is producing for DC Entertainment and Warner Bros Television.

Val Zod is the story of another Kryptonian with powers who hails from the same doomed planet as Superman. The hero is Black, and he finds refuge on Earth 2. Like the original Man of Steel, he is sheltered on his adopted planet but eventually in the comics is pitted against a brainwashed Superman.

Metayer & Peters are TV credited with writing the American Snow, Amazon's The Nola with Sam Raimi directing and Hannibal, based on the life of the Carthaginian general Hannibal, they scripted for Scott Free and Endeavor Content. They recently worked on Transformers: Rise of the Beasts for Paramount Pictures, set for release June 24, 2022.

There has been some talk about Jordan playing the Man of Steel, but it is unclear whether he might star in this one. He is currently credited with being an executive producer along with Elizabeth Raposo for Outlier Society. Stefano Agosto, SVP Television for Outlier Society, will also oversee the project.

I hope they really go into the New 52 Earth 2 series with this. I think that could have a lot of potential whether it's just a universe that tells that story through Val Zod as the main character or it eventually expands with connected projects like JSA, World's Finest with Power Girl and Huntress, or a resurrected Thomas Wayne as Batman.

Interested to see how this turns out. Val Zod is a fav of mine but I would have just as easily been cool with Cal Evans....although Jordan is kinda to young to play him
