    James Gunn Unveils New Title For Anticipated ‘Superman’ Film As Production Kicks Off

    The anticipated Superman: Legacy film by James Gunn has undergone a title change.

    With the film’s production officially starting on February 29, it has been renamed to simply Superman.

    On his Instagram, Gunn expressed his excitement about the commencement of production on “SUPERMAN” on February 29, which, by a happy coincidence, also aligns with Superman’s birthday.

    “Originally, when I completed the first script draft, it was titled Superman: Legacy, but by the time I finalized it, it became evident that the movie should just be called SUPERMAN,” Gunn explained.

    In Gunn’s announcement, he shared a snapshot of the redesigned Superman logo, which echos the emblem seen on Superman in the 1990s’ comic series Kingdom Come, but replaces the comic’s black and red hues with Superman’s iconic yellow and red colors.

    Set in an ominous dystopian future, Kingdom Come portrays a world where the fresh crop of heroes falls short of maintaining global peace, forcing veterans of the Justice League, including Superman, to emerge from retirement and take a stand. Although never adapted for the big screen, the Kingdom Come version of Superman’s attire was donned by Brandon Routh in the Arrowverse’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” event. Routh is also known for his role as Superman in Superman Returns released in 2006.

    The new Superman film (not Superman: Legacy) is set to hit theaters on July 11, 2025, marking the inaugural movie in a newly conceived DC Comics cinematic universe under James Gunn’s direction.
