It's come to light that James Gunn may have revealed the new "S" logo the Man of Steel will don in Superman: Legacy almost a full year ago on social media...

The Superman: Legacy cast recently took part in the movie's first official table read, and a photo shared by Hawkgirl actress Isabela Merced is believed to have given us a first glimpse of the new "S" logo David Corenswet's Man of Steel will sport in the movie.

Director James Gunn hasn't confirmed or denied that this shield - which is inspired by the Kingdom Come logo - will be a part of the new costume, but it looks like the filmmaker may have teased this reveal almost a year ago.

The DCU Updates page noticed that Gunn shared a post to Bluesky Social shortly after joining the social media site, and included the very same Kingdom Come-style symbol. This could be a coincidence, but it seems like a very random image to add to this particular post.

Again, Gunn has yet to comment on the table read "leak," but with principal photography set to commence next week (or possibly even this weekend), we might just get a glimpse of the new suit for ourselves.

Superman: Legacy will also star Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, along with Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern Guy Gardner, and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.

More recently, Sara Sampaio signed on to play Lex's assistant/lover Eve Teschmacher, and Skyler Gisondo has been cast as Jimmy Olsen.

Members of the anti-hero team The Authority are also expected to appear, and María Gabriela de Faría (Animal Control) has been cast as Angela Spica/The Engineer.

Milly Alcock's Supergirl is also rumored to make her debut ahead of her own Woman of Tomorrow movie, but that's yet to be confirmed.

We're still not sure exactly how these other superheroes will factor into the story, but Gunn has previously revealed that Superman's dual-life as both Clark Kent and the Man of Steel will be explored in the film, suggesting that these characters will be his "super friends." Whether they'll be part of an actual team or not remains to be seen.

“Superman: Legacy is the true foundation of our creative vision for the DC Universe. Not only is Superman an iconic part of DC lore, he is also a favorite character for comic book readers, viewers of earlier movies, and fans around the world," said Gunn during the DCU slate announcement. "I can’t wait to introduce our version of Superman who audiences will be able to follow and get to know across films, movies, animation and gaming.”

@Doomsday8888 - how so?
Doomsday8888 - 2/27/2024, 1:56 PM
It's Supes' birthday, filming is about to begin, rather than have a leaked pic, i reckon Gunn would like to release an official image.
We'll see!

So the Routh Symbol from Infinite Crisis.

Probably the worse Superman symbol i have seen in live action honestly.
TheVisionary25 - 2/27/2024, 1:41 PM
@BlackStar25 - well , it’s based on the Kingdom Come one lol

lazlodaytona - 2/27/2024, 1:53 PM
@BlackStar25 - I like it for older Superman, like in Kingdom Come.

But this Superman is supposed to be in the early years of his life, so still young and already established. So, NO, I do not want that symbol for this film.
DankMan - 2/27/2024, 2:13 PM
@BlackStar25 - You're wrong on a couple things. It is "worst" not "worse". And the symbol is great
DankMan - 2/27/2024, 2:16 PM
@lazlodaytona - Superman used that same symbol when he was young in the Kingdom Come universe as well.

The symbol itself is amazing and I bet it is going to be red and yellow instead of red and black.
lazlodaytona - 2/27/2024, 3:14 PM
@DankMan - it could be for sure

@DankMan - correcting grammar isn't hip man. Do better.

@McMurdo - Being dumb isn't hip. Virtue signaling isn't hip. Do better.

@McMurdo -
@DankMan - The word "hip" isn't hip.
We use the phrase the cat's pajamas around here! 🤪
PatientXero - 2/27/2024, 8:01 PM
@BlackStar25 - I respectfully disagree with your opinion. It’s one of, if not my favorite version of the symbol. I love Kingdom Come.
McMurdo - 2/27/2024, 11:28 PM
@DankMan - seek help when safe for you to do so.
DankMan - 2/28/2024, 9:29 AM
@McMurdo - you’re projecting my guy, hope you’re alright
McMurdo - 2/28/2024, 1:14 PM
@DankMan - you're gaslighting now my friend. Hang in there.
DankMan - 2/28/2024, 1:23 PM
@McMurdo - says you bud
McMurdo - 2/28/2024, 1:28 PM
@DankMan - correct that's how these comments sections work pal.

@McMurdo - I'm not your pal, guy.
McMurdo - 2/28/2024, 1:54 PM
@DankMan - shoot, I'm the best you got bub.
DankMan - 2/28/2024, 2:09 PM
@McMurdo - Ok bud, whatever you say. Bye

Why would he use the Kingdom Come S? Makes no sense.
Steel86 - 2/27/2024, 1:50 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - From the leaks, grain of salt please, its Kingdom Come but yellow instead of black. Everyone has their personal taste. The My Adventures with Superman S is very similar. And eventhough I didn't like it at first because I love the cartoon it grew on me
ObserverIO - 2/27/2024, 1:55 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - He might be basically doing a long version of Kingdom Come, with new heroes such as The Authority becoming more popular than the more traditional, classic heroes such as Superman and the Justice League who are seen as outmoded old fuddy duds.
mastakilla39 - 2/27/2024, 2:03 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - From the leaks and twitter posts Gunn has been hinting that he's going to adapt Kingdom Come. Premise is even similar to Superman Legacy's synopsis where Superman has to remind all the current heroes that truth and kindness isn't considered old fashion.

Rock also said him and Gunn spoke about Black Adam's future, that it was never a definite no but just not in phase 1.
PatientXero - 2/27/2024, 8:04 PM
@mastakilla39 - That’s a slippery slope, and hopefully WB don’t [frick] with him as much as they did Snyder, who was clearly going to a take on Injustice.
WruceBayne - 2/27/2024, 1:35 PM
I’m used to seeing that particular design on an older Superman so it’ll be interesting to see how it’s pulled off on this version.
NicolausCopernicus - 2/27/2024, 1:39 PM
Regardless what you think of the movie itself or the colro scheme,
this is the best modern superman logo for me
