Although some people might not have anticipated Henry Cavill to be replaced, it appears that director James Gunn’s idea centres on a much younger Superman, whom Gunn has not yet cast. There are many opportunities for success with a new take on the Man of Steel. He must stay clear of one major pitfalls, though, in order to fully realise that.
Avoiding a Superman Rehash
In a new interview with Variety, Superman: Legacy writer and director James Gunn spoke about what he feels his upcoming reboot needs to avoid.
Gunn pointed out how the project wouldn’t be worth making if “it was just a redo of any other Superman adaptation:”
“I don’t think the movie would be worth making if it was just a redo of any other Superman adaptation… For us to truly thrive as a studio, we need to honor the past of these characters while simultaneously seeing them in a new light.”
Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav also elaborated, making it clear that “[they] have a real opportunity to breathe life into these characters.” Star Wars Exact TIME of Movie & TV Panels In 2023
Many Possibilities for James Gunn’s Superman
Fans only truly know that the narrative of Superman: Legacy will have the Kryptonian “reconcile his Kryptonian background with his human upbringing as Clark Kent,” aside from the fact that it will centre on a younger version of the superhero. Everything else is uncertain other from that. But, given how bizarre and weird James Gunn’s works can be (see The Suicide Squad or Peacemaker), fans shouldn’t be concerned that the remake will cover old material.
There has been much speculation regarding Jason Mamoa’s possible portrayal of Lobo as the adversary in Legacy. Such decision would undoubtedly be unusual compared to alternatives like Brainiac or Metallo. Recent speculations also claim that The Authority, a brand-new team of anti-heroes that Gunn and his collaborator Peter Safran will be bringing to life in a different project, would eventually confront the new DCU’s Superman.
It’s clear that whatever this upcoming DCU has in store for Clark Kent and his heroic alter-ego will be far different than anything before.
