With the debut of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,’ the curtain falls on the DCEU, marking the official transition to James Gunn’s revamped DCU. The upcoming Phase One, titled “Gods & Monsters,” promises various exciting projects, with ‘Superman: Legacy’ generating substantial anticipation as it introduces the new cinematic Superman and supporting characters.

Filming for ‘Superman: Legacy’ is slated to commence in March 2024, promising revealing set photos in the near future. This film, not an origin story, will center on a young version of Superman, a reporter who encounters pivotal characters like Lois Lane throughout the narrative.

The storyline follows Superman’s odyssey as he attempts to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human roots in Smallville. Described by producer Peter Safran as the embodiment of truth, justice, and the American way, Superman symbolizes kindness in a world that often considers it outdated. Both Gunn and Safran envision the film as the genuine starting point of the DC Universe.

Scheduled for release on July 11, 2025, ‘Superman: Legacy’ draws inspiration from Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s ‘All-Star Superman’ comic, along with other comic books. James Gunn is confirmed as the director, with Peter Safran serving as the producer. The roles of Superman and Lois Lane have been assigned to David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan, respectively, following their casting in June. Filming is set to take place at Trilith Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, beginning in March 2024 and concluding around July of the same year.
