‘Superman: Legacy’: James Gunn Clarifies ‘Young’ Man Of Steel Rumors

No, Legacy is not a young Superman movie!

Superman: Legacy James Gunn

DC Studios co-head James Gunn recently shed light on the nature of his upcoming superhero project Superman: Legacy. The acclaimed filmmaker took to the social platform Threads to clear the air regarding the theme and direction of the film.

James Gunn is spearheading Superman: Legacy as its writer and director. While speculation had been rife about the film’s storyline, Gunn’s recent statement puts an end to a particular strain of rumors. He emphasized that he “was never making a young Superman movie, just a Superman movie.”

David Corenswet has been steadily making a name for himself in the entertainment industry with his impressive performances in various projects. He gained significant recognition for his roles in the hit Netflix series The Politician and the slasher movie Pearl.

David Corenswet’s Superman: Legacy portrayal is expected to offer a more traditional take on the beloved superhero and his alter-ego, Clark Kent. While recent iterations of the Man of Steel have explored different aspects of the character, James Gunn has suggested that Legacy features a return to the classic essence of Superman.

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.
