DC Studios co-head James Gunn took to his social media pages to share a photo of the Superman: Legacy cast, capturing a sweet moment following a table read. The photo shows Gunn himself, with his DC Studios partner Peter Safran also featured, surrounded by the cast poised to bring the next chapter of the Superman saga to life.

In the photo, David Corenswet stands out as the new Superman, flanked by Nicholas Hoult, who has fully embraced his role as Lex Luthor with a bald head. Also featured are cast members Rachel Brosnahan, Nathan Fillion, Isabela Merced, Edi Gathegi, Skyler Gisondo, María Gabriela de Faríam, Sara Sampaio, Anthony Carrigan and Terence Rosemore.

“After the table read with the Superman cast, James Gunn wrote on Instagram. “Eve, Mr. Terrific, Superman/Clark, Otis, Lex, producer Peter Safran, Jimmy, Metamorpho, Lois, Hawkgirl, me, Guy, The Engineer all together for the first time! What a wonderful day.”

Set to begin production in March 2024, Superman: Legacy promises a fresh take on the iconic superhero saga, featuring David Corenswet stepping into the role of Superman, previously portrayed by Henry Cavill. Joining Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan in this new chapter of the Superman story is Nicholas Hoult, who is taking on the role of the villainous Lex Luthor.

Superman’s DC Universe Future

Superman: Legacy is a much-anticipated project, given that Clark Kent has been an integral part of the DC Universe for over 80 years, with various iterations and adaptations across different media. The movie promises to explore the character’s origins and his struggles to balance his dual identities as Clark Kent and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world.

James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room and a unified storyline across film, television, animation and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
