Superman: Legacy revealed, is the start of the new DCU

When it comes to the DCEU, the word chaotic springs to mind. It certainly hasn’t been an easy ride for DC Studios. There’s been plenty of controversy.

In recent months, fans called on DC executives to axe Ezra Miller and Amber Heard from the franchise. There was also the whole Snyder Cut campaign, plus the Joss Whedon accusations. Sprinkle in a few box office duds like Black Adam and you can see how the DCEU found itself in a sticky situation. James Gunn was recently brought on board to drive the DCEU to success. The past several weeks were plagued by rumours that Gunn was cutting loose DCEU stars like Henry Cavill and Jason Momoa. Well today, Gunn and Peter Safran have provided their first real update as studio heads and it’s good news for fans.

We finally know what the plan is. Gunn and Safran revealed the first 10 projects in their rebooted universe which is simply being referred to as the DCU. Chapter One, which we presume will function like Marvel’s phases, is known as ‘Gods and Monsters.’ As reported by Variety, the chapter will include the previously announced Superman film written by Gunn - now titled Superman: Legacy. This will not star Cavill. A new actor will portray Clark Kent but it will seemingly kickstart the new era for DC.

The film is set to release on 11 July, 2025, and will focus “on Superman balancing his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing,” according to Safran. Following that, there’s ensemble film The Authority, Batman and Robin flick The Brave and The Bold, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, and Swamp Thing.

On the TV side of things, we’ll have Creature Commandos, Waller (starring Viola Davis), Lanterns, Paradise Lost (a Wonder Woman prequel), and Booster Gold. I’m somewhat intrigued by the idea of a mystery Green Lantern series. Which project are you looking forward to? There’s so much to unpack.
