Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy director James Gunn is about to reboot the DC movie franchise as co-CEO of DC Studios over at Warner Bros.

Next year, Superman: Legacy will kick off the DCU’s Chapter One: Gods and Monsters and the production is about to start filming.

Gunn has posted a selfie from the studio lot with the main cast including Man of Steel star David Corenswet, Lex Luthor actor Nicholas Hoult and Lois Lane actress Rachel Brosnahan.

The filmmaker captioned his Instagram post: “After the table read with the Superman cast.

“Eve, Mr. Terrific, Superman/Clark, Otis, Lex, producer Peter Safran, Jimmy, Metamorpho, Lois, Hawkgirl, me, Guy, The Engineer all together for the first time! What a wonderful day.”

Gunn has previously teased that this Superman movie will be set in a DC universe where other superheroes already exist.

He previously shared: “Superman: Legacy tells the story of Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas. He is the embodiment of truth, justice, and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.”

Meanwhile, the new Superman chest emblem was spotted at the table read and teases the plot’s comic book inspiration.

Hawkgirl actress Isabela Merced revealed the Superman: Legacy logo from the table read and it’s the same chest emblem as the one worn by Clark Kent in DC Comics’ Kingdom Come storyline.

The 1996 miniseries is set in an alternative future where a new generation of superheroes now have more in common with the villains they fight. As a result, the old guard Justice League return to take them on. 

It’s unlikely that the new movie will be a direct adaptation, but considering Gunn’s synopsis above, it sounds like inspiration will be taken at the very least.

Superman Legacy hits cinemas on July 11, 2025.
