Superman is reimagined by James Gunn!
When production on James Gunn‘s Superman: Legacy gets underway, Superman will once more travel to the skies. The well-known author and filmmaker announced the start of pre-production for the DC Studios film on social media.
Gunn tweeted the cover page of the script with the words “I’m honored to be part of the heritage.” And what better day to launch Superman: Legacy‘s early pre-production than Superman Anniversary Day? Now operational are costumes, production design, and more.
In order to explore the early years of the Last Son of Krypton, close to the time he first started working at the Daily Planet in Metropolis, DC Studios is casting a new Kal-El for Superman: Legacy. As a result, Henry Cavill won’t be playing the DC Comics hero again.
Given that Clark Kent has played a significant role in the DC Universe for more than 80 years and has undergone numerous versions and adaptations across multiple media, Superman: Legacy is a highly anticipated project. It is promised that the film will examine the character’s beginnings and his difficulties to manage his twin personas as Superman and Clark Kent while fending off bad guys and rescuing the planet. It’s a brave approach that might potentially give the character fresh life and appeal to a newer generation of followers to concentrate on the beginning of his career.
According to James Gunn and Peter Safran, their plan for the DC Universe entails fixed screenplays, leeway, and a common plotline for all cinema, television, animation, and video game ventures. The two clarified that their eight-year plan is not a complete reboot because the DC Universe might bring back components from earlier DC eras.
