Regina King Reacts To Possibility of Directing Black 'Superman' Movie

Regina King is reacting to the possibility that she’ll be directing the new Superman movie.

The 50-year-old One Night In Miami director heard of the rumor that she’s on a short list of dream directors for the project from DC and Warner Bros.

While speaking to MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross over the weekend, Regina revealed that the rumor was news to her.

“I’m curious, because this is a little bit of gossip. You’re rumored to be on the short list to direct Superman. You and Barry Jenkins, both of your names have been thrown out there,” Tiffany had mentioned. “Anything you want to tell us? Is there any news you can break this morning about those conversations?”

Regina then replied, “Tiffany, that is news to me. You have broke the news to me…a news break, live on MSNBC!”

After pausing for a moment, she added that she had not “heard that until just now.”

Regina‘s name was listed on a dream list put out by many outlets after the studio shared it wanted to hire a Black director for the movie, as it would focus on the first Black Superman.

If you didn’t see, Regina is set to direct a comic book movie adaptation. Find out more here…
