    A First Look At David Corenswet As Superman Has Been Released

    Gaze toward the heavens! Actually, redirect that gaze to James Gunn’s Threads profile – the online platform just released the inaugural look at David Corenswet donning the iconic Superman cape in the eagerly anticipated reboot of the legendary superhero.

    Within the image, we observe Corenswet slipping into the signature crimson footwear of the Last Son of Krypton, presumably within the confines of Clark Kent’s abode. Outside, a peculiar luminous threat looms over Metropolis. His costume appears slightly worse for wear, hinting at previous scuffles involving blasts of energy. Despite the chaos unfolding beyond the window, Superman’s composed demeanor — likely due to his accelerated abilities — is striking as he readies himself to join the fray.

    The suit’s design is reminiscent of modern takes on the classic ensemble seen in DC Comics, borrowing elements from Jim Lee’s artistic interpretation during the “New 52” era of the early 2010s. The bold “S” emblazoned on his chest is a nod to “Kingdom Come,” the acclaimed miniseries by Mark Waid and Alex Ross presenting a stark future where elder superheroes emerge from seclusion to face a reckless new brigade of heroes.

    With a concise teaser, Gunn presented the full image on Threads captioned: “Get ready. Superman 7.11.25.”

    Pondering over this mere snapshot might seem excessive, yet the symbolism it portrays is noteworthy. It places emphasis on the mere mortal aspect of this iconic character. Silver screen portrayals haven’t shown Superman, typically clad in an instant, go about such a mundane task as putting on boots. Normally, a quick dash into a phone booth or a dizzying spin is all it takes for Clark Kent to become Superman. Here, the suit is treated like tangible attire; it has weight, it accumulates dirt, its fit on Corenswet is realistic with noticeable folds and creases. It’s intentional imperfection.

    The implications this has for Gunn’s interpretation of Superman remain to be seen. But the image seems to signal a more grounded, possibly fallible iteration of the Man of Steel. Fans can look forward to Gunn’s Superman gracing theater screens on July 11, 2025.
