Do you think Superman: Legacy is introducing one too many characters?
In the James Gunn directed pic Kal-El/Clark Kent will be portrayed by David Corenswet, Lois Lane is played by Rachel Brosnahan, Guy Gardner/Green Lantern will be portrayed by Nathan Fillion, Isabela Merced was cast as Hawkgirl, Mister Terrific will be portrayed by Edi Gathegi, while Anthony Carrigan plays Metamorpho.
Before the SAG-AFTA strike got underway, it appeared that the film was on the cusp of casting Lex Luthor, Jimmy Olsen, and Perry White.
And while the strike persists, there are more rumors appearing that there are still quite a few more DC superheroes and villains set to appear in the film.
On the social media platform Threads, James Gunn responded to a fan who shared his fears about the number of characters being introduced in the film.
Said Gunn, "I don’t understand this fear. There are less characters than in 40-Year-Old Virgin. Did you think Steve Carell got enough time?"
In short, Gunn is stating that despite the large ensemble cast, David Corenswet's Superman will definitely be the main focus.
The only question that leaves us with is which of the previously announced superheroes will be the "Cal" of the film?
Currently set for release on July 11, 2025, Superman: Legacy is the first film in Gunn's reboot the DCEU.
Outside of the DC Studios Elseword title, Joker: Folie à Deux in 2024, DC fans will have to wait until 2025 to see Gunn's vision for the new cinematic universe. What's the over/under on whether Gunn gets tired of responding to fan questions on social media?
