The Kryptonian is coming back! Filming has officially begun on Superman: Legacy, the film that will definitively inaugurate the new DC universe led by James Gunn and Peter Safran. The director and producer himself, through his Instagram profile, has already shown something interesting to the fans. After the first photo with the entire cast, Gunn returned to social media to give a first look at the hero's costume: in the shot, the classic red S stands out on a yellow and blue background, the detailed embroidery can be appreciated and fans have already started speculating about what all that snow around the logo means. Will the Fortress of Solitude dispersed among the ice of the North Pole be immediately central?

It's not all. With his post, James Gunn also announced an unexpected title change for the film. Apparently, it will no longer be called Superman: Legacy, but just Superman. The original title made one think of a film about the origins of the superhero, in line with the first plot details that have emerged over these months. James Gunn directly explained the change: “When I finished the first draft, I called it Superman: Legacy. But once it was over, it was clear that it was just Superman."

Clark Kent fans are now waiting to see more images from the set, perhaps David Corenswet himself as Superman. Together with him, we remember, we will also see Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane and Nicholas Hoult will play the new Lex Luthor. Many other faces have already been announced: Skyler Gisondo (Jimmy Olsen), Anthony Carrigan (Metamorpho), Edi Gathegi (Mister Terrific), Nathan Fillon (Guy Gardner), Isabela Mercad (Hawkgirl), for a film that immediately promises to be huge for the DCU.

The theatrical release of Superman is set for July 11, 2025.
