Ever since we got official word that David Corenswet would be suiting-up as our new Man of Steel in James Gunn's Superman: Legacy, there's been a lot of fan-art doing the rounds online, but this latest image from artist Logan Burns is one of the more impressive efforts we've seen.
The artwork presents a slightly stylized take on the Pearl actor as the legendary DC Comics hero, and may give us a pretty good indication of how he'll actually look in the upcoming movie. The costume takes inspiration from the more modern iterations of Supes' iconic suit, and Burns has shared two different versions of the pic, one with the red trunks and one without.
We still don't know what Legacy's take on the costume is going to look like, but Gunn has indicated that he won't be straying too fat from the classic design.
In addition to Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Legacy will also feature Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern Guy Gardner, and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.
We're still not sure exactly how these four 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.”
Casting is currently underway for Lex Luthor, Jimmy Olsen and Perry White, and now that the WGA strike has come to an end (though the SAG-AFTRA strike is still on), announcements may be forthcoming.
The Righteous Gemstones actor Skyler Gisondo was recently rumored to be a "top choice" to play Jimmy, while brothers Alexander and Bill Skarsgård are said to have tested for Luthor along with one-time Superman candidate Nicholas Hoult. Gunn has yet to weigh in on any of these reports, however.
Barring any delays, production is scheduled to commence next January.
