With the conclusion of the DCEU through the release of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,’ the DCU is now stepping into the spotlight. James Gunn’s upcoming movie, ‘Superman: Legacy,’ is poised to be a soft reboot, indicating a fresh direction for DC characters under his guidance. Gunn, known for keeping fans informed through social media updates, recently addressed questions about the film’s progress via Threads.

According to Gunn, the development of ‘Superman: Legacy’ is proceeding smoothly, with sets under construction, costumes finalized, and actors settling into their roles. When asked about the locked-in cast for the movie, Gunn provided a somewhat vague response, stating that it exceeds 90% but falls short of 100%. This implies that while a significant portion of the cast is confirmed, not every character has an assigned actor, inevitably sparking further speculation and rumors.
