Everything we know about Superman: Legacy

It seems like James Gunn is not playing around with the upcoming Superman: Legacy. The film will feature the Suicide Squad director as the front-runner and will bypass the origin story of Superman. Apparently, Superman: Legacy will take the audience through how Clark Kent became the symbol of strength, justice, and hope.

The upcoming movie will star a powerful ensemble of actors. David Corenswet will don the Superman suit while Rachel Brosnahan will play his love interest, Lois Lane. Other actors making an appearance in the James Gunn directorial include Isabela Merced, Nathan Fillion, and Anthony Carrigan. With a set release date, a respected director, and an impressive cast, the only thing the new Superman has on its plate is a blockbuster.
