We all know what Superman looks like, or at least what Hollywood portrays him to look like. A white dude with a chiseled jawline, a perfect smile, and abs of steel. This got us thinking about how badass a black Superman would be and in this day and age, don’t be surprised if we see on in the coming years! Here are some actors that we thought would work perfectly for the role:
Idris Elba: Who doesn’t love a confident black man that talks slow and dresses classy. Let’a not forget he was named People’s 2018 “Sexiest Man Alive”
Michael B.Jordan: This may be our favorite option. We’ve already seen him in Marvel movies and his shirtless physique after all that training for Creed really has made him look like “The Black Superman”
Shemar Moore: Let’s just cut to the chase here, people: Shemar Moore is every girl’s dream man. The 48-year-old heartthrob has a habit of looking dangerously sexy 24/7, whether he’s in character as Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds or, ya know, simply existing as a human.
Omari Hardwick: The 43-year-old actor currently stars on the hit Starz series Power, and his racy sex scenes have earned him a legion of fans, who can’t get enough of him. Besides the fact that he’s a walking sexpot, the adorable father of two and University of Georgia graduate is also a poet and social justice activist when he’s not on set. I’ll never forget the first time I laid eyes on him in the 2010 film For Colored Girls, and I’ve been swooning over him ever since. If you’re not yet familiar with Omari, scroll through these sexy photos to see why he’s all I want for Christmas.
