James Gunn teases Superman: Legacy casting news

James Gunn teases Superman: Legacy casting news

DC studio head James Gunn has teased that Superman: Legacy casting news could be on the way very soon.

James Gunn, the CEO of the newly-created Warner Bros Discovery as well as the co-head of DC Films, has teased that Superman: Legacy casting news is on the way.

Recently, alongside Peter Safran, Gunn revealed the news that the DC franchise on the big and small screen is getting a reboot. Now dubbed the DC Universe, Superman: Legacy is said to be the start of it all. Sadly however, that new Superman movie will not be starring Henry Cavill. In fact, Cavill in DC is no more. And no, I still haven't gotten over it yet.

Speaking of DC, check out the latest trailer for The Flash.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. At the time of writing, we have no idea who will be cast as the new Clark Kent aka Man of Steel. However, it seems that we might be getting casting news sooner than expected.

As spotted by, a fan asked James Gunn on Twitter, “Will we get any major casting announcements in the next six months?” and Gunn simply replied, “Yes.”

While it’s not specified which casting announcements will be made in the coming months for the new DC Universe, given that Superman: Legacy will be its first major entry, it’s safe to assume that this will be part of the first round of casting announcements.

However, before we enter into the new DCU, the upcoming The Flash movie is said to have a major impact on how we lead into Gunn’s new universe with the popular Flashpoint comic book storyline taking centre stage.

In related DC movie news, we recently got our first glimpse at the 2019 Joker movie sequel, Joker: Folie á Deux starring the returning Joaquin Phoenix alongside Lady Gaga as (potentially) Harley Quinn.

Superman: Legacy is expected to arrive in cinemas on 11 July 2025. That’s assuming, of course, the movie suffers no delays which is always a probability.
