Warner Bros., responsible for gifting the world with movies adapted from DC Comics, is one of the biggest entertainment conglomerates in the world. From the Harry Potter film series to 2023’s highest-grossing movie, Barbie, the company has made some rather great contributions to the history of Hollywood movies.

Warner Bros.’s infamous rivalry with Disney is no secret since both these companies are parent organizations of the superhero franchises DC and Marvel, respectively. Fans of these franchises have not been too kind to each other.

According to an industry insider, Warner Bros. might get involved with Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan’s upcoming movie. This news is obviously not going to sit well with fans of the MCU.

Warner Bros. Might Get Involved with Michael B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler’s Next Project

Michel B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler have been collaborating for more than a decade now as the first project that they in together is Fruitvale Station, released in 2013. The independent film gave way to one of the most iconic actor-director partnerships which has expanded to major film franchises over the years.

Jordan and Coogler reunited for the seventh Rocky film, Creed. The movie saw the actor in the role of Donnie Creed, son of boxer Apollo Creed. Three years later, the actor-director duo worked together in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Black Panther, which starred late actor Chadwick Boseman in the lead role.

The Without Remorse star is going to work with Ryan Coogler once again and this is going to be the most exciting collaboration so far. As reported by industry insider Jeff Sneider, this new project might be a vampire movie.

Sneider has reported yet another new update on this on his X account as he has insinuated that Warner Bros. might be the one who will get the distributorship for this movie by using a vampire emoji.

This will add to the tension between the already feuding Marvel and DC fans as Coogler and Jordan were first under the Disney (parent company of Marvel) umbrella and now they will be related to DC (a subsidiary of Warner Bros.). There is no official confirmation regarding this yet.

This documentary is centered on how Superman star Christopher Reeve found his strength and purpose through activism after getting paralyzed due to an equestrian accident. Although quite a few companies have been competing to land it, the inspirational documentary might after all end up at the home of the Superman franchise.

This deal will be great for Warner Bros. since DC Studios is working on Superman: Legacy, which is set for release in 2025 as of now.
