Nathan Fillion is set to take to the skies as the Green Lantern Guy Gardner in Superman: Legacy. However, Fillion seemingly leaked a production update he wasn’t supposed to!
While fans know that Superman: Legacy is set to start filming sometime in March 2024, the actual timeline of the production has been left hazy as best. Nathan Fillion, who plays Guy Gardner, has revealed the clearest update yet, saying that a table read will be happening in Atlanta next week, with a costume fitting soon after. This caused director James Gunn to give the Green Lantern actor an exasperated response on social media.
It’s pretty shocking Nathan Fillion was the first person to leak details about Superman: Legacy, even in just a minor way. James Gunn has kept a surprisingly tight lid on the production of DC Studios’ first film. However, Fillion wouldn’t be a perfect Guy Gardner without making an obvious social faux pas, so maybe he’s a better pick for the Green Lantern than fans first thought.
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!
