‘Superman: Legacy’ Director James Gunn Shares Script Status

Superman: Legacy is set to begin filming in early 2024. However, according to writer-director James Gunn, the script for the first DC Universe film isn’t finalized just yet.

With filming set to start in less than half a year and the script submitted right before the WGA Strike, many fans have assumed the Superman: Legacy script has been cemented. However, Legacy writer-director James Gunn has recently debunked this idea, saying that he’s always changing small things about the upcoming DC Universe debut:

Fans shouldn’t worry that this means the start of the DC Universe is going to be rushed. This is standard practice with any film, from the biggest studios to the smallest indies. It’s important for a script to be flexible as production goes on in case any elements don’t end up working, so it seems James Gunn is taking his job as director of Superman: Legacy very seriously by keeping options open.

What to expect from Superman’s DC Universe debut

Superman: Legacy is a much-anticipated project, given that Clark Kent has been an integral part of the DC Universe for over 80 years, with various iterations and adaptations across different media. The movie promises to explore the character’s origins and his struggles to balance his dual identities as Clark and Superman while fighting off villains and saving the world. The choice to focus on the early years of his career is a bold move that could potentially breathe new life into the character and appeal to a younger generation of fans.

James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
