James Gunn Information Ta Nehisi Coates Superman Movie

The filmmaker and co-Head of DC Studios, James Gunn, may be pushing Superman: Legacy at full speed, but he is not standing in the way of a certain other Superman project. In 2021, it was reported that J. J. Abrams would produce a Superman reboot film with Ta-Nehisi Coates as the screenwriter. More recently, Gunn and Peter Safran took over the management of DC Studios, and one of the first orders was to develop their own reboot of Superman. Nicknamed Superman: Legacy, the film has already been given a premiere date that should be released in theaters in the summer of 2025.

When Gunn and Saffron came into play at DC Studios, plans to make more films starring Henry Cavill’s Superman were immediately leaved. This could lead to speculation that the project previously announced by Abrams and Coates will also be leaved. However, speaking to i09, Gunn explained that the production of Superman: Legacy is not affected by the Abrams and Coates Film, and vice versa. He clarifies that he has not yet seen a script for the Film in person, adding that if the Film were shot, it would take place in its own autonomous universe, a bit like Joker and Batman. As Gunn Explains:

It seems that Gunn is not determined to say that the Film will definitely happen, because he wants to wait to see the script before making such decisions. It was rumored that the Film would follow a black Superman. From the very beginning, it was also made clear that the Film was developed as a standalone story, so despite the other changes at DC Studios, Coates did not have to change course with what had been written so far.

Who will be the next man of steel?

We know that Henry Cavill is on his way as Superman, but with a release date for Superman: Legacy, a Casting announcement should be made in the near future to reveal who the next Man of steel will be. Recently, Gunn told Variety that there were “very good choices” for the role. He also shared what it would take to know that you have in mind the perfect person for Superman. As Gunn explained:

It is not known when the Film, written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, could be released, but as far as Superman: Legacy is concerned, this Film will be released in theaters on July 11, 2025.
