With the release of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ DCEU is officially over, and James Gunn’s rebranded DCU is ready to take over. There are several projects about to be released as a part of Phase One aptly titled “Gods & Monsters,” but the most hyped-up project currently is ‘Superman: Legacy,’ set to introduce the new cinematic Superman and the supporting cast. While Gunn is always ready to share details from the upcoming movie (that he is at liberty to share), some things are still left under tight wraps, and one of them is Superman’s new costume.

One of the questions that Gunn answered on Threads was what the odds of seeing Superman’s suit before the filming begins, and he answered in a pretty straightforward way: Zero-Point-Zero.

The filming is going to begin in March 2024, and luckily, the set photos will reveal more. ‘Superman: Legacy’ is not an origin story but will focus on a young version of Superman who works as a reporter, and over the course of the movie, he meets with key characters like Lois Lane.

The story will follow Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human family in Smallville. According to producer Peter Safran, Superman is portrayed as the embodiment of truth, justice, and the American way, representing kindness in a world that often perceives kindness as old-fashioned. Gunn and Safran view the film as the true beginning of the DC Universe.

The film is scheduled for release on July 11, 2025, and Gunn mentioned drawing inspiration from the comic book ‘All-Star Superman’ by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, as well as other comic books. Gunn confirmed his role as the director, with Safran serving as the producer. Actors David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan were cast as Superman and Lois Lane in June. Filming is set to begin in March 2024 at Trilith Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, and is expected to conclude around July of the same year.
