María Gabriela de Faría is set to make her debut as The Engineer in 2025’s Superman: Legacy. A new photo from her Instagram account shows her training ahead of her first DC Universe appearance.
Fans were shocked when it was announced that The Engineer would make her live-action debut in Superman: Legacy, especially given the character is most commonly associated with DC’s Wildstorm imprint. Yet it seems María Gabriela de Faría is dedicated to making sure the character is done right, recently showing off her killer physique as the project nears its production start date.
María Gabriela de Faría’s caption seems to suggest that The Engineer will have at least a few action-packed sequences in Superman: Legacy. The film will also likely serve as a testing ground for her role in the new DCU, as the character is expected to have a leading role in The Authority, which is set to hit theaters sometime in the first phase of the new 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!
