Michael B. Jordan‘s first attempt at playing a superhero didn’t go over well with movie buffs. The 2015 reboot of Fantastic Four bombed at the box office but similar to his character in Creed, Jordan is a fighter! He’s now planning to star in his own superhero franchise.
Jordan along side Nathan Edmonson are co-authoring the comic book, North. Here’s the premise of the series from The Hollywood Reporter.
“[North] follows a soldier who is recruited into a top-secret paramilitary program that modifies his mind to make him a spy like no other. When an operation goes south, he is betrayed by the organizations he serves but quickly discovers he is far more dangerous than even his betrayers realize.”
While it sounds a lot like Captain America, we’re team #MichaelBJordan so we support you bae!
Edmonson is an accomplished writer who penned The Punisher and Black Widow for Marvel. He and Jordan met, ironically at one of Los Angeles’ top comic shops, Golden Apple and decided to collaborate on their own comic.
The pair have already completed two issues which will be published by Dark Horse Comics in 2016. According to THR, this is the start of something big for the 28-year-old. “The duo want the comic to stand alone on its own merits, one of the goals is to craft an eventual producing vehicle for Jordan.”
