Mega director and producer J.J. Abrams could take over creative responsibilities for several characters in the DC universe and his main sought-after prizes are Superman and Green Lantern.

A source at San Diego Comic-Con revealed that Abrams is setting his sights on Green Lantern and the Man of Steel for future projects as part of the deal he signed with Warner Bros. recently.

Plans going forward are unknown but recasting the part of Superman seems more plausible now. Henry Cavill’s status has been in question a lot as of late although there has been no formal parting of ways between him and the studio.

For Abrams to step in, it means a relaunch of the franchise that keeps Superman in the same age bracket as Batman. Robert Pattinson is taking over as a spry 30-something Dark Knight.

Abrams restarted the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises and became an expert of the sci-fi and fantasy genres in the process. He reassumed duties on Star Wars after the debacle of Rian Johnson and The Last Jedi.

JJ Abrams has a reputation for filling a major vacuum and relaunching franchises. If the rumours are true, he might be just the calling card that DC needs.
