Superman: Legacy is set to be an ultimate love letter to the Man of Steel. In his most recent social media post, Legacy director and DC Studios co-head James Gunn revealed he used an iconic Lois Lane cover in a treatment for the film.
Fans have been excited to hear more about Lois Lane in Superman: Legacy ever since director James Gunn explained the importance of her role in the DC Universe reboot. It seems as though fans may have gotten their first crumb of what to expect from Rachel Brosnahan’s take on the character, with Gunn revealing the use of the cover of Action Comics #965 in his treatment.
For those unaware, a treatment is essentially a breakdown of important plot beats in a film, meaning James Gunn likely has a moment that recreates this iconic cover in Superman: Legacy. Fans have been waiting for years to see Lois Lane don her iconic purple outfit, so it seems as though the character is in good hands with Gunn and Rachel Brosnahan in the DC Universe.
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.
