Is David Corenswet’s Superman getting his own Fortress of Solitude in his DC Universe debut? James Gunn may have just teased the inclusion of one of the DCU’s most iconic locations in a new photo amid his Superman: Legacy prep.
Pre-production for Superman: Legacy has been ramping up in recent weeks, with filming for the project starting in just a few months. James Gunn has kept fans abreast with plenty of teases for the upcoming DC Universe film. However, his newest Instagram post may have tipped his hand in revealing the Fortress of Solitude could appear in the film.
While that BTS photo looks like nothing more than a barren tundra, the Fortress of Solitude is known for being hidden away in the Arctic Circle. The unusually flat landscape also makes the location easy for James Gunn and his team to CGI the structure into the scene, or even build a practical set for it. Regardless of which direction they go, it certainly seems Superman: Legacy will be an amazing start to the new DC Universe.
What to expect from Superman’s DC Universe debut
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!
