It's a bird, it's a plane, it's holiday cheer!

James Gunn DC Studios Superman Legacy

It seems Santa Claus is coming to the DC Universe! Superman: Legacy director James Gunn has shared some amazing Superman-themed holiday greetings for the most wonderful time of the year.

It’s clear James Gunn has a very deep love for Superman, just as many fans do. Celebrating his first Christmas as writer and director of Superman: Legacy, Gunn shared some beautiful holiday messages based around the Man of Steel to ring in the holidays as the head of the upcoming DC Universe reboot. The full posts can be seen below.

Discourse around superhero movies, especially those in the DC Universe, tends to get pretty toxic. It’s nice to see that James Gunn, now one of the biggest figureheads of the community thanks to his role in the DC Universe and Superman: Legacy, is spreading love, not hate, during the holiday season with some wonderful Christmas messages.

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!
