The new Superman suit has officially debuted. As filming on James Gunn‘s “Superman” (formerly “Superman: Legacy”) continues

James Gunn, the acclaimed writer-director, has unleashed a tantalizing tease into the cinematic stratosphere: behold, the unveiling of the new Superman suit! As the wheels of production churn for Gunn’s latest opus, tentatively christened “Superman” (formerly dubbed “Superman: Legacy”), he generously offered denizens of cyberspace a glimpse into the metamorphosis of star David Corenswet into the iconic Man of Steel.

Prepare thy ocular orbs for a sight both beguiling and bewildering: the suit, bedecked upon corniest’s sinews, appears not as the pristine emblem of righteousness one might expect, but rather, weathered and besmirched, suggesting a narrative rife with grit and grime, where Superman shall descend into the maelstrom of battle, unyielding and unrelenting.

the writer-director shared to his Threads account a first look at star David Corenswet in costume as the Man of Steel. The first thing fans might notice is the suit is quite dirty and weathered, which suggests Superman will be doing plenty of down-and-dirty fighting in the movie.

Gunn added on Threads that the first look photo “was taken on set by Jess Miglio and was entirely in-camera.”

In a testament to the artistry of the craft, Gunn, via the conduit of his digital sanctuary known as Threads, revealed that the enigmatic image was captured amidst the tumult of the set by the skilled lens of Jess Miglio, all without the aid of digital trickery, residing wholly within the realm of the tangible.

Corenswet is getting the big break

Corenswet is getting the big break of a lifetime as the star of “Superman,” which marks his first time leading a major Hollywood tentpole film. The 30-year-old actor is best known for his supporting roles in two Ryan Murphy-created Netflix series, “The Politician” and “Hollywood.” His most notable film role prior to “Superman” was probably “Pearl,” the Ti West-directed horror movie starring Mia Goth.

For Corenswet, this cinematic odyssey marks an ascent to the zenith of stardom, a coronation as the lead in “Superman,” his inaugural foray into the annals of Hollywood’s grandest spectacles. Familiar to aficionados of the small screen for his roles in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix symphonies, “The Politician” and “Hollywood,” Corenswet’s previous celluloid dalliances, most notably the Ti West-helmed horror saga “Pearl,” merely primed him for this pivotal moment under the Kryptonian sun.

Starring opposite Corenswet in “Superman” is “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane. Nicholas Hoult is taking on the role of Superman’s infamous villain Lex Luthor, while Gunn’s cast also includes Skyler Gisondo (Jimmy Olsen), Anthony Carrigan (Metamorpho), Edi Gathegi (Mister Terrific), Nathan Fillion (Guy Gardner), Isabela Merced (Hawkgirl) and more.

Beside Corenswet in this celestial ballet, the effervescent Rachel Brosnahan, laureled with an Emmy for her effulgent portrayal in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” assumes the mantle of the intrepid Lois Lane, while the enigmatic Nicholas Hoult, ensnared within the labyrinthine machinations of villainy, embodies the nefarious visage of Lex Luthor. Gunn’s pantheon of players further expands with luminaries such as Skyler Gisondo, ensconced within the raiment of Jimmy Olsen, Anthony Carrigan metamorphosed into Metamorpho, Edi Gathegi metamorphosing into Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion gallantly donning the mantle of Guy Gardner, and Isabela Merced soaring into the firmament as Hawkgirl, among others.

Superman: Legacy

While originally titled “Superman: Legacy,” Gunn revealed in February that he trimmed the title down to just “Superman.” Around the same time, Gunn posted the first cast photo from the movie’s first table read of the script. Speaking to Variety at the SAG Awards this year, Brosnahan said it was thrilling to hear Gunn’s words aloud.

Initially christened “Superman: Legacy,” Gunn, in a gesture of cinematic austerity, pared down the title to its elemental core, “Superman.” Concurrently, he unveiled a hallowed image of the ensemble gathered in communion, the vanguard of the narrative’s genesis, as they partook in the sacred ritual of the table read. In reverent discourse with Variety amidst the glitz and glamour of the SAG Awards, Brosnahan exuded effervescent enthusiasm, regaling the ineffable thrill of hearing Gunn’s verbiage uttered aloud, a symphony of syllables coalescing into the tapestry of their shared destiny.

For Brosnahan, the allure of Lois Lane lies in her indomitable spirit, her acumen, and her wry wit, qualities she eagerly anticipates embodying under Gunn’s aegis. Yet, the journey has only just begun; the characters, still gestating within the crucible of creativity, await their definitive incarnation upon the silver screen.

“Superman” is slated to grace the hallowed halls of theaters on July 11, 2025, courtesy of Warner Bros., promising a voyage into the unknown, where heroes and villains clash amidst the cosmic expanse, and the human spirit soars on wings of celluloid fantasy.

“It was pretty amazing,” Brosnahan said about the table read. “Some of us met for the first time. Some of us got to see each other again. It was amazing to hear the script out loud. As with all of these films, there’s a lot of action sequences and things. So to hear the pacing of the film and to get to hear these characters occupied by the actors who play them is really fun. It’s also a great group. You can’t ask for more than that when doing something like this.”

“I have always loved Lois Lane,” the actor added. “She’s smart, ambitious and can be funny. She knows she’s the smartest person in the room more often than not. When the opportunity came on…I’m such a fan of James Gunn from afar…we’re still finding these characters. We haven’t started shooting yet. You’ll meet the final version of them.”

“Superman” is set to open in theaters July 11, 2025, from Warner Bros.
