There's a lot of Superman: Legacy fan-art out there, but we think this latest effort, which imagines David Corenswet as the Man of Steel with and without the iconic red trunks, is worth a look...

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.

While no one could come close to what Donner and Reeve did, I at least hope that Corenswet's performance will recapture audiences awe, wonder and imagination.
JobinJ - 10/14/2023, 9:46 PM
@MCUKnight11 - yo. For real tho. The Donner and Reece movies are classic. But they are corny and actually not that good. Reeve is a great Superman, but the movies are kind of bad.
dragon316 - 10/14/2023, 10:18 PM
@JobinJ - defiantly bad with sequels Superman vs solar man kidnaps woman takes her up to space he lets go she falls no floats she doesn’t die she’s in space
ReverseFlasher - 10/15/2023, 3:21 AM
@MCUKnight11 - the first superman film is pretty pitch perfect. That being said, to imagine only donner and reeves are or were capable of bringing that magic, is a failure of imagination.

There can and definitely should still be collaborations between actor and director that are capable of reaching such heights. Superman is not some story that is impossible to crack or adapt, at any time. It’s both universal, and timeless.

@dragon316 - in the first one he flies around the earth and reverses it’s spin. And it somehow turns back time? Lol. It would literally kill everyone on earth and cause catastrophic floods.

@ReverseFlasher - Perfect? Lol. It’s silly. in the first one he flies around the earth and reverses it’s spin. And it somehow turns back time? Lol. It would literally kill everyone on earth and cause catastrophic floods.

Looks like advertisement for an Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Halloween Special...













Origame - 10/14/2023, 9:23 PM
@VictorAlonzo - it's because of the implication.
valmic - 10/14/2023, 9:20 PM
looks dooshie

"Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane"

Literally the only bit people are more excited about.
Fogs - 10/14/2023, 9:28 PM
That's a speedo, not trunks.

Looks AI made btw
dragon316 - 10/14/2023, 10:21 PM
@Fogs - people first call it photoshop gimp Microsoft art , now it’s ai all of sudden what’s next for it to be labeled
ReverseFlasher - 10/15/2023, 3:24 AM
@dragon316 - dude your english is improving a lot! I’ve never heard the phrase photoshop gimp ms art, but i get it, and I love it lmao.
Fogs - 10/15/2023, 5:26 AM
@dragon316 - Well there's not really another way of creating authoral digital art unless it's photoshop or a similar software, don't know what you're talking about.

The details, the suit, it's all generic and texturized like a lot of AI stuff we see around. Just investigate and you'll see what I mean.

What emotion is this look on his face supposed to be conveying?

It appears as if he's attempting to stifle a super fart.
StSteven - 10/14/2023, 10:47 PM
@Feralwookiee - Yeah, I was kinda asking the same question and I think that you may have hit upon the answer. Either stifling a super fart or super constipation. Or it could be the look of relief after releasing said super fart only to realize that he actually super sharted. Definitely bowel-related either way.
AnthonyVonGeek - 10/14/2023, 10:07 PM
Why’s he look like he just smelled a bad fart?
Feralwookiee - 10/14/2023, 10:16 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek - Because he couldn't stifle it.

*See above post* ^ 🤪
AnthonyVonGeek - 10/14/2023, 10:45 PM
@Feralwookiee - those kryptonite poisoning farts are the worst.🤣🤢
DalekCraigWasson - 10/14/2023, 11:15 PM
Pretty much exactly what I don't wanna see in a Superman costume: Marvel-ized lines on the side, a belt that's not really a belt (Snyder already did this!), the raised bumpy texture. It's absolutely a 21st century superhero movie Superman costume, and we already got one of those recently.
bkmeijer1 - 10/15/2023, 3:52 AM
@DalekCraigWasson - "Marvel-ized lines on the side"

Finally someone else who notices the. I really don't like them. Make all the superhero suits looks the same
harryba11zack - 10/14/2023, 11:24 PM
sup needs his knickers back.
solskulldeath - 10/14/2023, 11:37 PM
basically dAvid Corenset is Henry Cavill 2.0 base on looks
Forthas - 10/14/2023, 11:42 PM
At 6'4" I am afraid that David Corenswet will look too gangly. Logically, if Superman were to live in the real world, his height would further give away his identity.
NinnesMBC - 10/15/2023, 12:39 AM
Nice fanarts and I hope the trunks return, enough time has passed to keep on ignoring them.

Brandon Routh wore them twice in Superman Returns and as his slightly similar dippelganger in Crisis on Infinite Earths so they still work. So did Tyler briefly in the Fleischer suit.
Th3Batman - 10/15/2023, 2:13 AM
They're both the same. The suit looks fine with or without them, now can we move on from this stupid debate ? They will in no way, shape, or form make or break this movie. The #1 aspect people should be talking about is the writing.
ShellHead - 10/15/2023, 2:17 AM
This looks like an AI generated image and therefore is not art
bkmeijer1 - 10/15/2023, 3:53 AM
@ShellHead - yeah I thought the same. And if it's real fanart, it sure doesn't look that way
Nightwing1015 - 10/15/2023, 1:18 PM
@ShellHead - people take AI images as a base and edit them - they also fine tune it with their own prompts. Absolutely is art. More than most modern “art” is anyway where it’s just a pineapple on a table or some shit
GetsugaTensho22 - 10/15/2023, 3:03 AM
Well, at least it’s not by BossLogic 🤷🏽‍♂️
That guys work is awful and I have no idea how he got so many celebrities to notice him.
KNIGHT3OOO - 10/25/2023, 11:10 AM
That facial expression is not very Supermanly. Otherwise it looks good, but the expression makes him seem like an A$$hole
