Gunn has been engaged on the script for a while, properly earlier than the brand new slate was introduced in late January.

In an announcement on Twitter, Gunn explains a bit about how he got here to the choice:

“Sure, I’m directing Superman: Legacy to be launched on July eleventh 2025. My brother Matt informed me when he noticed the discharge date he began to cry. I requested him why. He mentioned, ‘Dude, it’s Dad’s birthday.’ I hadn’t realized.

It has been an extended street up to now. I used to be provided Superman years in the past – I initially mentioned no as a result of I didn’t have a means in that felt distinctive and enjoyable and emotional that gave Superman the dignity he deserved.

Then a bit lower than a 12 months in the past I noticed a means in, in some ways centering round Superman’s heritage – how each his aristocratic Kryptonian mother and father and his Kansas farmer mother and father inform who he’s and the alternatives he makes.”

Gunn not too long ago squashed casting rumors surrounding the position as he indicated a casting director hasn’t even been employed as but. “Superman: Legacy” is the one movie from the slate to have a set launch date and is scheduled to hit cinemas on July eleventh 2025.
