Justin Howell, who is the lead stunt double for David Corenswet's Man of Steel in James Gunn's Superman, recently spoke with the Be More Super outlet, where he shared an interesting tidbit regarding the film's production schedule.

While Howell didn't give away any specifics related to the film's plot, he did disclose that filming is expected to wrap in July.

Principal photography on Superman officially began on February 29. 

According to the Macon Telegraph, filming is expected to leave the closed confines of Fayetteville, Georgia's Trilith Studios, and shoot on location in Macon, Georgia, near the end of May.

This comes after Gunn and co. were filming on location in Svalbard, Norway, where they filmed exterior shots for the Fortress of Solitude.

As previously disclosed, Superman, formerly titled Superman: Legacy, is currently filming at a private, heavily-guarded sound stage in Atlanta, which accounts for the lack of set pics and leaks that usually accompany superhero pics.

In addition to the on-location filming in Macon, Georgia, the cast and crew will also be traveling to Ohio soon, where they'll likely shoot at a site that could potentially be used for the Hall of Justice.

It seems Gun will be pulling double-duty over the next few months, as he'll also be helming a few episodes of Peacemaker season 2, which is also filming at Trillith.

With cameras set to film out in the open soon, the hope among the fandom is that Gunn and DC Studios will soon reveal the first, official full look at Corenswet's Man of Steel costume.

It was hoped that the reveal would come on the anniversary of the release of Action Comics #1 but while Gunn did share a social media post with Corsenwet and Rachel Brosnahan, the suit was not revealed.

The James Gunn-directed (and written) film stars David Corenswet as Kal-El/Clark Kent, Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific.

Rounding out the cast are Sean Gunn as Maxwell Lord, María Gabriela de Faría as Angela Spica/The Engineer, Terence Rosemore as Otis, Wendell Pierce as Perry White, Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.

Additionally, Nicholas Hoult has been confirmed by Gunn to portray Lex Luthor in the film. Milly Alcock was also recently cast as Supergirl and is also expected (but unconfirmed) to appear in Legacy, as well.

More recently Pruitt Taylor Vince was cast as Jonathan 'Pa' Kent, while Neva Howell signed on to play Martha 'Ma' Kent.

Currently set for release on July 11, 2025, Superman: Legacy Superman is the first film in Gunn's reboot of the DCEU.

@ProfessorWhy - Most of Gunn's recent films have been between 9 and 15 months for post, so a year is about the average for him.

I wonder which trailer will have the most hype after comic con


Captain America Brave New World

Daredevil Born Again

@WakandaTech - superman, because it's a reboot.
sully - 4/22/2024, 8:42 PM
@WakandaTech - 1. Superman, 2. Daredevil, 3. CA:BNW. In that order. For me, Daredevil might have the #1 spot and Superman being #2. Daredevil might have a more thorough trailer than Superman. I can't imagine effects will be far along enough on Superman to have an actual trailer. We'll probably get some teaser with small cut scenes with more practical effects and a voiceover.

I’m curious if we’ll get a cameo from any Superman cast members in Season 2 of Peacemaker. Them filming concurrently certainly leads to the possibility. And not out of the realm of possibility when we got 2 Justice League members from the old universe cameoing in the first series. Maybe they’ll make a joke about Superman looking different etc (or even Cena commenting that this Superman no longer has a poop fetish in this universe and has something equally as…un-Superman like)

@CerealKiller1 - I wouldn’t be surprised if we get more jokes about Peacemaker listing random and unverified “facts” about superheroes like Hawkgirl or Mister Terrific that he heard or read about on the internet

Dudes changed but not that much lol

Right now I'd expect Gunn's first DCU movie to make around $400 million at most. It has no star attractions. No one really wants it. Seeing Superman in CGI is not new or a big deal. Gunn is not a great filmmaker and his Suicide Squad and Peacemaker are not what people want from DC movies.

Then I expect Gunn's next movies to drop off and make much less while Joker 2 and The Batman 2 make more. After about 3 movies, WB should decide to cut Gunn's projects and trim budgets. Then he quits.

If Superman Legacy outright flops, WB will kill Gunn's DCU much quicker because they no longer have the money to risk blowing on more. And with Barbie's success and the MCU's decline, they will no longer be so eager to try to create their own MCU.

@PartyKiller - and then back to one off superman and Batman projects for about 20 years 😭

@PartyKiller - It took them 10 years to kill the DCEU.

Makes sense movies usually take 4 months or so to film…

Anyway , just inject this into my veins now!!.

Also with them slowly about to do on location shooting , I wouldn’t be surprised if we start getting set pics next month or so.

If you have to use a stunt double to cover your ass, you don't deserve a million dollar paycheck.
JFerguson - 4/22/2024, 8:18 PM
Filming on location in Norway for the fortress of solitude is crazy in a good way
PaKent - 4/22/2024, 8:28 PM
In Gunn we trust!

Eagles0589 - 4/22/2024, 8:36 PM
I saw earlier today that they are filming in a city about 15 minutes North of me starting at the end of May, there is an extra casting call, if only I didn’t have college classes this summer.
