James Gunn may be behind the camera, directing Superman once the script is complete.
In a YouTube interview now private, DC Comic Book writer Tom King described Gunn both as the writer and director of the Superman feature. King said, “There’s stuff that I can talk to, and stuff that I can’t,” when discussing DC Studios’ creative committee. James Gunn (I mean, I mean, he’s a super nerd, and he is super creative) He’s the Superman movie director and writer. Peter Safran is kind of the creative force behind this. He reached out to a group, including me, a great, amazing screenwriter, to help him make the movies and TV series as good as they can be.

Gunn stated that work on Superman: Legacy began around mid-2022. Warner Bros. While the script was initially written by Discovery, it was not officially released until December 2022. According to reports, the film follows Clark Kent’s early days at Daily Planet. Although Gunn is confirmed to be the writer of the film, Gunn reportedly wasn’t sure if the director would be.

Details about Superman’s Legacy have not been released. However, Gunn’s version of Man of Steel (whom he refers to as “a big, ol’ gait”) is thought to be loosely inspired by Grant Morrison’s fan-favorite All-Star Superman. Gunn said that Superman. Legacy does not directly adapt Morrison’s work. He denounced the rumors that Superman would have a son in his movie, as well as those who believed the Big Blue Scout would be around the age of 25. Gunn said in February, “It keeps on getting repeated but it never happened to me.” “It was all I said about Superman being younger than he was in the forties, and Batman may be a couple of years older than Superman,” Gunn stated.

Warner Bros. recently also revealed that DC Studios boss James Gunn-Superman-legacy-dc–studios/ had been awarded Superman by Discovery. Discovery had offered Superman to him before but he decided instead to tackle Suicide Squad. “A few more years later, [and] saw how to tackle Superman [and] did it,” he stated. The Man of Steel may not be the only Kryptonian who is ready to join the new DCU. Gunn, his team, and Kara Zor El are currently working on Supergirl. It is based on King’s comic book storyline. Woman of Tomorrow was not released. Also, it is unknown if Flash‘s Sasha Calle can reprise the role for the new solo film.
Superman Legacy opens in theaters on July 11, 2020.
