With the release of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ DCEU officially ended, and now DCU is taking over. Even though Gunn’s reboot is supposed to be a soft reboot, it looks like the stories of DC characters under his leadership are going in a new direction. Since Gunn often likes to provide fans with updates via Social Media, he is always eager to answer questions regarding the development of his upcoming ‘Superman: Legacy’ the movie that is supposed to kick off the live-action portion of the DCU.
Recently, Gunn used Threads to clear up some details regarding the production of the movie. He cleared up that the development so far is going “swimmingly” as sets are being built, costumes are finished, and actors are adjusting to their roles. One fan took the opportunity to ask Gunn how much the cast he has locked in for ‘Legacy,’ and Gunn was vague in answering but confirmed that it’s more than 90 % but less than 100%, meaning that not all characters have actors attached to them, which will consequently start more rumors.
Gunn also cleared up that the costumes will be finished by the time shooting commences, and due to filming being delayed to March 2024 due to SAG-AFTRA strikes, I guess we can expect the first few “rumors” and “leaks” to appear in over 2 months.
So far, the main cast consists of David Corenswet, who will portray Clark Kent/Superman. Rachel Brosnahan takes on the role of Lois Lane, while Isabela Merced is set to play Hawkgirl. Edi Gathegi will depict Michael Holt/Mister Terrific, and Nathan Fillion will bring to life Guy Gardner/Green Lantern. Anthony Carrigan is cast as Rex Mason/Metamorpho, María Gabriela de Faría as Angela Spica/Engineer, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor. Sara Sampaio is set to portray Eve Teschmacher, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, and Sean Gunn will appear in a role that is yet to be confirmed.
