DC Studios co-head James Gunn has debunked rumors regarding the budget of Superman: Legacy.

Superman: Legacy is poised to begin production this week, heralding a significant shift in the DC Universe under the new leadership of James Gunn and Peter Safran. This momentous occasion marks not just the return of one of the most iconic superheroes to the big screen but also the start of a new chapter for the DCU.

The budget of Superman: Legacy has been the center of much speculation and debate across various platforms. Amidst swirling rumors alleging the film’s budget could exceed $364 million, James Gunn took to Threads to address and debunk these claims directly. His response: “Absolutely not. How in the world do they think they know what our budget is?” While the exact budget remains undisclosed, Gunn’s comment brings a level of transparency not seen in the DC Extended Universe era.

Hollywood’s recent history has seen blockbuster budgets spiral out of control, with films like Gladiator 2, The Flash, and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny exemplifying this trend. While the exact budget remains undisclosed, the aim of Superman: Legacy is clear: to forge a new path for the DC Universe that combines fiscal responsibility with creative ambition.

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, with Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane. Joining Corenswet and Brosnahan in this new chapter of the Superman story is Nicholas Hoult, who is taking on the role of the villainous Lex Luthor.

James Gunn recently provided fans with a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of the upcoming Superman movie, showcasing the cast following a table read.
