THE Guardians of the Galaxy The director also spoke about his reluctance to embark on the project initially.

Superman: Legacy will be the first film of the Gunn-Safran period. Warner Bros. expects the project to be completed by July 2025.

“It focuses on Superman balancing his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way. He’s kind in a world that thinks kindness is old-fashioned,” Safran told reporters in January.

Gunn explained his reluctance to take on the project on Twitter: “I initially said no because I didn’t have a unique, fun, emotional way that gave Superman the dignity he deserved.”

“Then just under a year ago I saw a way in, in many ways centered around Superman’s legacy – how his aristocratic Kryptonian parents and farming Kansas parents inform who he is. and the choices he makes.”

“Just because I’m writing something doesn’t feel it in my bones, visually and emotionally, enough to spend more than two years making it, especially not something of this magnitude. But, to sum it up, I love this storyline and am incredibly excited as we begin this journey.

Moreover, this Superman will not be played by Henry Cavill, who played the superhero in Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) And Justice League (2017), and who appeared in a cameo in 2022 Black Adam.
