“Listening to about these conversations hurts no much less now than it did again then.”
Apparently, the creators of the Krypton TV sequence needed some nontraditional casting, and Regé-Jean auditioned for the position of Superman’s grandfather.
Based on a number of sources, Geoff Johns — former co-chairman of DC Movies — allegedly shot down the concept as a result of Superman “couldn’t have a Black grandfather.”

“The clarifications nearly damage extra, tbh,” the actor continued.
“Nonetheless simply doing my factor. Nonetheless we do the work.”
“We nonetheless fly,” he concluded.
