Ever since David Corenswet was cast as the Man of Steel, DC fans have been waiting to get a glimpse at his superhero suit. Superman: Legacy director James Gunn recently revealed if fans can expect to see the suit before the movie’s production start date.
It’s safe to say the Superman: Legacy hype train has officially left the station. With filming starting in 2024, Superman fans are hoping to get some massive scoops about David Corenswet’s character before the camera starts rolling. However, it seems James Gunn will be playing this one tight to his chest, with the writer-director revealing that there is a “zero-point-zero” percent chance of seeing his suit before cameras start rolling.
While it’s a tad disappointing that fans won’t be seeing David Corenswet in his spandex until filming starts, it likely won’t be long after that the official reveal comes. After all, James Gunn wouldn’t want the suit for Superman: Legacy to be revealed through set photos. Superman fans may want to synchronize their watches for when boots hit the ground in Spring 2024.
What to expect from Superman’s DC Universe debut
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 in this new chapter of the Superman story is Rachel Brosnahan, who will bring to life the character of Lois Lane, the intrepid journalist and Superman’s love interest.
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 and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world. The choice to focus on the early years of his career is a bold move that could potentially breathe new life into the character and appeal to a younger generation of fans.
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.
Superman: Legacy is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 11, 2025. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the DC Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
