SUPERMAN: LEGACY Table Read May Have Revealed A KINGDOM COME Inspired 'S' For David Corenswet's MAN OF STEEL SUPERMAN: LEGACY Table Read May Have Revealed A KINGDOM COME Inspired 'S' For David Corenswet's MAN OF STEEL

The first table read for Superman: Legacy got underway today in Atlanta and screenshots of (now deleted) social media posts may have revealed what James Gunn is thinking in regard to the House of El crest.

On the very first day of table reads for Superman: Legacy, details for the highly-anticipated Superman reboot are already leaking out it seems.

Two of the cast members, Hawkgirl actress Isabela Merced and Miss Teschmacher actress Sara Sampaio posted their name cards to Instagram to share their excitement but may have inadvertently revealed the design for the House of El crest in the process.

The design for the crest seems to definitely take inspiration from the 1996 Kingdom Come DC Comics miniseries from Mark Waid and Alex Ross.

Fans are now wondering if James Gunn is going to fully commit to the Kingdom Come motif and go with a red and black emblem, as opposed to the traditional red and yellow.

With filming set to start this Spring, fans likely won't have long to wait before getting their first glimpse of David Corenswet's Superman suit. Filming is rumored (but unconfirmed) to begin in March so the reveal could come any day.

Back in December, Gunn disclosed via Threads that the costume was, "mostly done but we’re still going back and forth on some elements."

He also previously teased that the suit would be a mixture of classic and modern designs while also being something totally new and different.

Superman: Legacy, 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, Sean Gunn as Maxwell Lord, María Gabriela de Faría as Angela Spica/The Engineer 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.

The latest report on the film has the full main cast assembled in Atlanta for the first of what will undoubtedly be many table reads before filming gets underway.

Currently set for release on July 11, 2025, Superman: Legacy is the first film in Gunn's reboot of the DCEU.  Filming is expected to begin in just a few weeks.

In Gunn we trust.

@vectorsigma - you trust, I'll wait for the finished product first!

@vectorsigma - #InGunnWeTrust
There you go, fixed it for you
vectorsigma - 2/22/2024, 10:03 AM
@AquaClunge - i have full trust after getting gotg trilogy, suicide squad and peacemaker.
vectorsigma - 2/22/2024, 10:04 AM
@Nolanite - thank you very much mr. Nolanite
DeadClunge - 2/22/2024, 11:17 AM
@vectorsigma - I liked GOTG 1 and TSS but the others projects were a bit too childish for me. I didn't even finish peacemaker.
vectorsigma - 2/22/2024, 11:25 AM
@AquaClunge - gotg 3 was childish for you with the theme of animal experimentation and an egomaniac who will destroy a planet on a whim?
DeadClunge - 2/22/2024, 2:57 PM
@vectorsigma - yes, yes it was. None of that animal stuff affected me because they were all CGI with cutesy voices setup to pull at the heart strings. Never worked on me. And the high evolutionary came across as an adult brat who didn't feel menacing at all because he spent most of the time screaming.

Just my take of course

@vectorsigma - speak for yourself
Comicmoviejunki - 2/23/2024, 10:48 AM
@AquaClunge - GOTG 1 is the only good project he has directed. The others are childish trash
DeadClunge - 2/23/2024, 11:39 AM
@Comicmoviejunki - I agree but I did like TSS tbh.
FireandBlood - 2/22/2024, 3:21 AM
Oh, shit 😬
ProfessorWhy - 2/22/2024, 3:38 AM
I just watched peacemaker finally..... I'm afraid Gunn's Superman is going to be a strange flavor that doesn't scream "DC". Too childish and too adult, at the same time. An omelet filled with skittles
Himura - 2/22/2024, 3:41 AM
@ProfessorWhy - Who said it would be anything like Peacemaker? James Cameron made Aliens and Titanic. Directors can make more than one type of movie.
Th3Batman - 2/22/2024, 3:49 AM
@ProfessorWhy - He already confirmed it would be nothing like his previous work due to the nature of the character.
Twenty23Three - 2/22/2024, 3:57 AM
@ProfessorWhy - you watched a comedy show about a complete idiot. It’s not going to be any indication of how Superman will be.

@ProfessorWhy -

You just might be right. Please don't bury us with GotG d!ck jokes.
ProfessorWhy - 2/22/2024, 12:18 PM
@DocSpock - thanks for understanding my comment and not over reacting like I just tried to assassinate Gunn
DocSpock - 2/22/2024, 12:38 PM
@ProfessorWhy -

You got several likes for the comment. Not everyone responds with text because of the troll reactions.

@Repian - if without trunks , I could see it being similar to that with a cape

I wouldn’t be surprised though if we get something closer to the Kingdom Come look considering Gunn has teased it with some of his posts.

Twenty23Three - 2/22/2024, 12:43 PM
@Repian - for a mainly forgettable little run, this suit goes a lot harder than it really has any right to
Twenty23Three - 2/22/2024, 3:59 AM
Whilst I do love the KC logo, I’m hoping this is just for the table read because they are trying to keep as much under wraps as possible. I mean they will most likely be tweaking and working on designs until the actual shooting starts.
Himura - 2/22/2024, 11:00 AM
@Twenty23Three - Yeah I agree. The design of his S is pretty iconic and a lot of people look forward to see how it looks in every movie. I dont think they'd reveal it during a table read.

Time for golden age aesthetics to come back.

Glad it's happening, because all those plastic power rangers costumes were starting to put me off of the superhero genre.
WruceBayne - 2/22/2024, 5:11 AM
I wonder if Lex is going to get his mech armor in this or at any point going forward?
TheVisionary25 - 2/22/2024, 6:07 AM
@WruceBayne - that would be cool

We haven’t seen it in live action besides Supergirl

Highflyer - 2/22/2024, 5:21 AM
I hate it.
Fares - 2/22/2024, 5:50 AM
I can dig it
Nolanite - 2/22/2024, 6:02 AM
I love it
GhostDog - 2/22/2024, 6:39 AM
I’m kinda feelin it but this could be divisive for some. I’ve always liked that logo. I do hope that he keeps the yellow with it instead of the black though, but maybe that’s wishful thinking here.
ObserverIO - 2/22/2024, 6:49 AM
TheVisionary25 - 2/22/2024, 7:07 AM
Cool , I dig it!!.

This might be me reading too much into it but this symbol seems indicative of Clark’s arc in this film too of reconciling his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing…

The design is alien enough but it still resembles an S that it can easily be misunderstood as such which could lead to him being named Superman by Lois or whomever.
