DC Studios co-chief James Gunn has found a director to helm Superman: Legacy and it is… James Gunn.

The film, which Gunn has also written, will hit theaters July 11, 2025 and will mark the launch of the new direction of the studio’s DC Comics adaptation franchise as announced at the end of January.

Gunn made the announcement via his social media accounts –

Previously, Henry Cavill had been playing Superman on the big screen since 2013’s Man Of Steel. However, with the advent of Gunn and Peter Safran taking the reigns of the newly reorganized DC Studios, Gunn has decided that their first Superman story will focus on a younger iteration of the iconic superhero, necessitating a change of actor in the role. No word as to who will be stepping into the Man of Tomorrow’s red boots.
