The news was hardly surprising when James Gunn confirmed his dual role as both writer and director for the highly anticipated reincarnation of Superman.
The project, entitled “Superman: Legacy,” promises to reboot the franchise yet again and kick off the new chapter of DC films dubbed “God and Monsters.”
As per Gunn’s tweets, the film will showcase Superman’s struggle to reconcile his Kryptonian roots with his human upbringing, embodying the values of truth, justice, and kindness in a world that often neglects such virtues.
As a devoted admirer of Gunn’s previous cinematic endeavors, I am eagerly anticipating what he will bring to the table with this fresh take on the beloved superhero. Of course, let us not forget that the iconic character was created by the visionary duo of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
Mark your calendars for July 11, 2025, as “Superman: Legacy” is set to soar into cinemas, worldwide.
Yes, I’m directing Superman: Legacy to be released on July 11, 2025. My brother Matt told me when he saw the release date he started to cry. I asked him why. He said, “Dude, it’s Dad’s birthday.” I hadn’t realized. pic.twitter.com/ohQNV8nI4g— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 15, 2023
