SUPERMAN: Newly Unearthed Set Photos Seem To Suggest Mysterious Spaceship Belongs To [SPOILER]

New photos from the Cleveland/Metropolis set of Superman have seemingly revealed who will pilot the mysterious ship that arrives just outside The Daily Planet. Find more details on that right here...

Yesterday, we shared more photos from the set of Superman showing a ship of some sort with stairs descending from a doorway. With the idea clearly being to create all but those steps with VFX, we were left in the dark when it came to who might be piloting the thing. 

Well, another round of set photos showing the interior prior to its construction have seemingly confirmed that it belongs to Mister Terrific! 

Not only does this explain the ship's relatively small size, but it means the Justice League International member will likely arrive at The Daily Planet to help fend off whoever might be attacking Metropolis. We'd bet on him being joined by the movie's other heroes as well. 

It's also possible this is a separate ship; until we see more from set, we can't be certain. 

Cameras are expected to begin rolling tomorrow, meaning we should get to see them in action...unless DC Studios manages to completely close off the street and surrounding buildings. 

Michael Holt debuted in Spectre #54 in 1997 and was created by John Ostrander and Tom Mandrake. He's a technological genius with 14 PhDs and is an Olympic-level athlete. As Mister Terrific, he uses T-Spheres, advanced gadgets that provide holographic projection, hacking, and offensive capabilities. 

And yes, he's often arrived on the battlefield in his own ship which you'll see in the X posts below...

A closer look at David Corenswet's Superman has also been revealed and, upon closer inspection, it seems the Man of Steel used his Freeze Breath to help save the day.

Superman tells the story of Superman's journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.

David Corenswet is playing the Man of Steel, while Rachel Brosnahan has been tapped to star as Lois Lane.

The cast includes Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, and Gabriela de Faría as The Engineer.

Supporting characters include Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, Wendell Pierce as Perry White, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, Pruitt Taylor Vince as Pa Kent, Neva Howell as Ma Kent, Beck Bennett as Steve Lombard, Mikaela Hoover as Cat Grant, Christopher MacDonald as Ron Troupe, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor.

Milly Alcock is also expected to make a cameo appearance as Supergirl before taking flight in her own movie, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.

Superman is currently set to be released in theaters on July 11, 2025.

I hope they have Easter eggs and dialog about other heroes, but I'd rather not see them if you know what I mean. Snyder tried this same method and it blew up in his face, just make a [frick]ing movie about Superman

@bobevanz - I watched something like what you're saying for Trek recently. I agree though. I'm tired of easter eggs and nostalgia being dropped for no other reason than fan service. Make it work for the story if you do it.

@FireandBlood - if they going to put the high collar like new 52 then the trunks make no sense. But if they went old school like cavills then I can see the trunk working better (barely)

I get they're trying to mesh the 2 looks but it's like putting on a football jersey over a suit. Lol.

@UniqNo - This is Gunn. We saw with Guardians all the great concept art he could’ve chosen, and almost always chooses the worst possible version. He’s got no eye for costume design, unfortunately.

Can someone explain how shoving all these other characters into a "Superman" movie is any different than what they were doing with Snyder and the DCPU?


They are STILL putting the horse before the cart, and clearly don't believe a solo Superman movie will put asses in seats in the '20's.
I haven't seen anything from this project yet that makes me feel that they've learned from their past mistakes and have truly course corrected.

@Feralwookiee - Snyder sucks at juggling a large cast in a normal runtimes and cant edit stuff down properly and even with his bloated runtimes he still doesnt fix the problems

Gunn has shown he can have a large cast and develop them

In the guardians movies all the characters have a proper place in the story

in BVS, Wonder Woman, while cool is tacked on and then the rest of them are pointless youtube video sneak peeks

@Feralwookiee - Depends on how they're used in this film and future films.

MoS was set in a grounded Earth. BvS introduced heroes, gods, atlantians, speedsters, an Motherboxes. All while doing the Dark Knight Returns, and Death of Superman. BvS was doing too much.

Will Guy Guardner continue in the DCU as the main GL? Considering we're getting Hal and John, probably not.
Will Mr Terrific be a DCU main stay? What about Hawkgirl and Metamorpho?
I doubt these heroes will be the Justice league.

And if the rumors are true, then this will be a semi reverse/not reverse version of the Kingdom Come storyline. Where a New (newish), Superman will show the world (and these heroes), how to properly be a hero.

And the biggest thing you have to remember. Every single movie has more than 1 character in it. I don't understand where this idea that only superhero movies are not allowed to have more than one character.
The problem with BvS wasn't the amount of characters. It was the amount of stories it wanted to tell.

A Superman story about Supes TEACHING heroes how to be a hero is the most Superman story you can get. It's also one we've never seen on the big screen.

@dracula - "Gunn has shown he can have a large cast and develop them".

And that's always been his problem. He focuses on having a larger cast in teams to be the protagonist, but he never knew how to focus that on one primary character. He always uses big team-ups as his ace and for the projects he works on with teams, it's worked in his favor. I guarantee for this movie we'll see Superman in some team-up to help him in several threats instead of handling it himself.

Exactly.


I know what Gunn keeps insisting, that he's trying to create one unified shared primary universe, but I can't help the suspicion that all of these other characters are failsafes if "Superman" fails at the box office. Like if they are received well, they will get their own solo films made. Hell, even Supergirl feels like a failsafe since they are adapting Woman of Tomorrow.

I just don't trust him or what's going on at DC Studios.

@kazuma - "Every single movie has more than 1 character in it." That's not the same thing as having multiple super characters in it, especially when they all have vastly different sci-fi/fantasy origins that have nothing to do with each other.

If they explain it with the catch-all of metahumans, then it could work. But they'd have to explain that concept, expositorily at least (but with LuthorCorp supplying arms to militaries, it could easily be worked into the plot if Lex is creating and supplying into metagenetic tech).

ObserverIO - 6/23/2024, 11:21 AM
@TheLight - They haven't even succeeded in the mandate of creating a singular focused universe. We still have multiple Batmen and Jokers that they're selling us. But that could be mostly Zaslav's fault.

He's charged James and Peter with creating a more focused and cohesive product, but he's tie-ing their hands with The Batman franchise at the same time.

@ObserverIO - Lois Lane doesn't exist in the real world. Do we need her origin? Comic movies have been the biggest thing in theaters for almost 20 years now. I think people understand superheroes now.
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 6/23/2024, 1:03 PM
@kazuma - But we do have normal humans like Lois Lane. Her secret origin is that she was born like all humans are.

People understood the genre of superheroes a long time ago. But if Marvel Studios had Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Ant Man, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Ms Marvel and the GOTG show up in the first Iron Man movie with no explanation of their origins, it would have been an unmitigated disaster. Kinda like the DCEU was.

@ObserverIO - Hulk didn't have an Origin. Thor didn't have one. Scott Lang did, but not Hank Pym. We're 20 years in. Do you really think people need to be spoon fed every single detail about a character to understand them?

Look at Star Wars. Yoda didn't get an origin story. Darth Vader didn't get one (I'm talking original trilogy). Obi wan didn't either.
Why does Guy Guardner need an origin story but Yoda Obi Wan doesn't?

@TheLight - Man of Steel is THE BEST SUPERMAN MOVIE & Gunn Superman will flop....they will blame Zack Snyder or ppl who liked his vision. But the reality is Gunn is ONLY good with UNKNOWN or C-LIST characters like GOTH or Suicide Squad.

@kazuma - Hulk had an origin movie (only 4 years before) that TIH was a pseudo sequel to, his origin was recapped in the opening titles and it was made clear in exposition. There's a whole scene where General Ross explains who, what and how the Hulk is to Blonsky.

Thor did have an origin. There was a whole movie. Thor, 2011, Kenneth Branagh.

Ant Man was a journey of discovery. Scott Lang, a regular guy robs Hank Pym and is surprised when the stolen suit he is wearing shrinks. We discover who, what and how Ant Man is in the movie.

Star Wars is set in galaxy far, far away. They are aliens. That's their origin. It's explained in the opening text 'A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away'.
What a Jedi Knight is is then explained by Obi Wan to Luke Skywalker.

That's why Green Lantern need an origin story but Yoda and Obi Wan don't.

@TheLight - I'm not defending anything at this point, but maybe we should wait and see. Remember, the things that Gunn has released along with all the leaks and rumors, doesn't actually amount to much. Hopefully we just haven't gotten a clear picture of what's really going on.

@ObserverIO - So you need 2 hours to say how a hero got his powers? You ever read a comic? They're not 2 hours long.


*Guy Gardner punches bad guy into a building, causing damage and puts civilians in danger*

*Superman flies in and saves the civilians*

Superman: Are you trying to save people or are you just looking for a thrill?

Guy Guardner: Hey rookie. I'm a certified Green Lantern. I've been patrolling this sector long before your shiny red boots hit these streets.

Boom. We know what he is and what he does and how long he's done it.

2 hours isn't needed.
TheLight
TheLight - 6/23/2024, 3:24 PM
@Patient2670 - We've already had "we should wait and see" plenty of times. It resulted in the mess that was the DCEU. It was the very factor as to why DC took forever establishing a universe that they could've put together in the 90s. They dropped the ball then. More is going on even now behind the scenes and I'm betting a lot of those stakes are unfairly placed on Superman being a success. If not, he'll be their scapegoat and most likely get blacklisted.

@kazuma - A comic is not a movie.
Also, in terms of comics canon there was a whole origin issue for Green Lantern and all of the superheroes. It was only in the last few decades or so that they stopped doing that and just introduced superheroes fully formed and guess what, mainstream superhero comics aren't as popular anymore because of how legendarily inaccessible they are now.

They did the explain a superhero in one vague sentence thing. It didn't work. Remember how The Flash was explained to audiences? "So you got struck by lightning?"
That was it.

"So you got struck by lightning?"

That makes no sense to anyone that isn't a comic geek.

"I'm a certified Green Lantern. I've been patrolling this sector long before your shiny red boots hit these streets."

Neither does that.

Now if you watch a movie that shows a crime lab guy get struck by lightning and suddenly discover that he can run superhumanly fast then that suddenly makes sense.

Superheroes are stupid.
The GA has known that superheroes are stupid since forever. It's a hard sell.
If a guy says that he's a Green Lantern and he patrols space sectors and he's flying around wearing a costume and displaying superpowers then it's stupid, but if you sit and watch a 2 hour movie about it then it's no longer stupid (unless that movie is the Ryan Reynolds version).

Because then instead of saying "What?! He's a what and wtf does that explain wtf he's doing?" you'll be saying "Oh no, see this guy he was a pilot a really good pilot and then one day he saw something land in a field and it was a friggin alien and he was dying and he gave him this ring and he puts it on and suddenly he's transported to this planet..." etc etc etc. Suddenly it's no longer stupid or absurd because you saw it happen. You saw it with your own eyes, you experineced the absurdity in a movie along with the main character.

That's the difference 2 hours makes.

@ObserverIO - "and guess what, mainstream superhero comics aren't as popular anymore because of how legendarily inaccessible they are now."

And that has nothing to do with having to tell an origin story for every god damn character to ever be on the big screen.
Comics are failing because of how convoluted they are. People aren't picking up a new GL comic and being confused on who Hal, John, or Kyle are. They're confused at how many different books they need to pick up first. The required reading is killing the comics (DC/Marvel), industry. Not the lack of origin stories. What your asking for IS the problem with modern comics AND the problem the MCU is facing right now.

Comics require too much extra reading. You can't just pick up a comic and read it anymore. Everything is interconnected and it's hurting the industry.

@kazuma - While that is true origin stories are not in any way a hinderance and the lack of them is certainly a contributing factor. Whenever they reboot to do away with continuity, they always softboot instead. Crisis was probably the most successful DC reboot thanks to modern retellings of origins such as Man of Steel, Batman: Year One and Perez's Wonder Woman. Flashpoint was probably the second most successful, again a less soft reboot and origins were retold.

If an audience member wants to get into a continuity, they need to know where to start. There needs to be a start.

@TheLight - I guess what I'm trying to say is we really have no choice but wait and see what happens. I'm hoping for something good, rather than write it off out of hand just because we've been disappointed before. I'm not saying you have to trust James Gunn, and yeah, the stakes are high and it'll be on Gunn's head if it doesn't work. He won't get blacklisted, but he probably won't get to be CEO of a studio again. He'd go back to being a writer/director for hire, where he's a proven and profitable commodity.
I just think it's one thing to temper your expectations, and another to write it off entirely, based on one photo and a bunch of leaks.

When I said blacklisted, I meant about Superman, lol. Remember how long it took for him to return to the big screen after Superman IV. But I understand your point.


"I just think it's one thing to temper your expectations, and another to write it off entirely, based on one photo and a bunch of leaks."

Again I get what you mean and respect it. But I still will have my guard up. Disappointment for today's Hollywood is too casual for wishful aspirations.
