Black Panther star Michael B Jordan has responded to *those* rumors about a potential role in JJ Abrams' Superman reboot.

Jordan–who played villain Erik Killmonger in the Marvel movie–has been linked to Abrams' upcoming Superman title, to which Black Panther comics writer Ta-Nehisi Coates is also attached.

In a recent interview with Jake's Takes, Jordan admitted that the "whispers and the rumors" linking him to the coveted role of Superman were "a compliment".

Failing to offer a flat-out denial, the actor continued: "I appreciate people that think about me in that type of way for these roles. I don't really have anything more to kind of give on that, other than it's just flattering and I appreciate it."

The odds appear to be in Michael B Jordan's favor, with the actor currently working with Ta-Nehisi Coates on Ryan Coogler's Wrong Answer–and let's not forget, the actor has been linked to the role of Superman before.
