New DC boss James Gunn is set to direct the next “Superman Legacy” movie, the studio confirmed Wednesday. The announcement comes several months after co-directors Gunn and Peter Safran made the controversial decision to recast the superhero previously played by Henry Cavill.
Hitting theaters on July 11, 2025, “Superman Legacy” will serve as Gunn and Safran’s flagship DC Extended Universe film. Gunn also wrote the script for the project, billed as “Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas.”
This is a developing story.
