SUPERMAN Set Photos Reveal Daily Planet's Iconic Globe But Clark Kent's Workplace May Be Under Attack

Work to transform Cleveland into Metropolis is ongoing, and while we've already caught sight of the DCU's Daily Planet, the newspaper's iconic globe has now arrived on Superman's set! 

It's been shown on banners, of course, but the physical prop...well, it's an absolute beauty. 

The globe will seemingly hang above the entrance to the Planet's headquarters; Clark Kent will work there in the movie, with Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Cat Grant, Steve Lombard, Ron Troupe, and Editor-in-Chief Perry White joining him. 

We'd say it's likely some or even all of those characters will soon make their presence felt, though it's possible we won't get to see them if the set is heavily protected. So far, we've only caught a glimpse of Gabriela de Faría as The Engineer and that was several months ago; with that in mind, it may be wise not to get your hopes up for any big reveals. 

Interestingly, fake debris is also being delivered to Superman's set, suggesting an action scene could take place at the iconic Metropolis location. If so, we may well see the Man of Steel emerge from those spinning doors to do his thing and save the day. 

After the divisive first shot of David Corenswet, some shots of him suited up would go a long way in easing the minds of sceptical fans. 

Check out these newly revealed Superman set photos below. 

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.

As nitpicking seems to be the main sport around here...

...Globe is too small, lol

Cool to see they are including one tho :D

@Apophis71 - could be a smaller globe at the front entrance that mimics the giant one on top of the building.

Or, could be Hollywood trickery. Who knows if it’s a real prop to be used by actors or enhanced later in post.

Either way, it does look really good. From a Production Designer standpoint, I think it points to the aesthetic for the film overall. Gunn seems to get Superman’s brighter vibe and retro futuristic style. Snyder’s biggest flaw was trying to make Superman a Batman-dark edgy character.

@MG0019 - Oh I'm certain they will have a bigger version on the roof, was just goofing around :D
ObserverIO - 6/20/2024, 11:35 AM
@Apophis71 - The bigger one on the roof is confirmed in the skyline on one of the banners.
ItsNotForMeWahh - 6/20/2024, 9:46 AM
The globe will come down in a battle and Superman will put it up as a symbol while simultaneously hinting he's connected to it
Apophis71 - 6/20/2024, 10:08 AM
@ItsNotForMeWahh - Probably but why I would kinda look for a bigger version on the roof for that not a smaller one above the door.
TheVisionary25 - 6/20/2024, 10:17 AM
@Apophis71 - yeah

If he’s meant to catch it , it will be more impressive that way
lazlodaytona - 6/20/2024, 10:34 AM
@ItsNotForMeWahh - did that already with Superman Returns

Really dig what i'm seeing.

As simple as certain things are, they are still important, this could really be Gunn's forte when it comes to his version of Superman.

This looks like a job for...someone else.
DarthAlgar - 6/20/2024, 10:57 AM
@Origame - Ray Stantz from Ghostbusters once shared those sentiments.

Origame - 6/20/2024, 10:59 AM
@DarthAlgar - I don't remember Ray with a mustache. I'm calling shenanigans

DarthAlgar - 6/20/2024, 11:02 AM
@Origame - I raised my eyebrow at that too. Just Dan Aykroyd in general with a mustache is weird to me.
Origame - 6/20/2024, 11:04 AM
@DarthAlgar - petition that Dan aykroyd must shave twice a day to avoid such a monstrosity
Patient2670 - 6/20/2024, 12:21 PM
@Origame - I believe this was a cameo he did in "Casper".
Origame - 6/20/2024, 12:40 PM
@Patient2670 - I know. I'm joking. But the mustache was clearly done to make him distinct for rights reasons.
Patient2670 - 6/20/2024, 1:17 PM
@Origame - Fair.

I should have signed up for extras in cincy, oh well. Maybe next time lol Longlegs tickets on sale now!
HermanM - 6/20/2024, 10:08 AM
That globe is just for the entrance. I'm sure the top of the CGI exterior building will have one too.
RolandD - 6/20/2024, 10:18 AM
That looks great. I hope that there is a larger one on the roof but either way, that looks awesome and I love the attention to detail.
TheVisionary25 - 6/20/2024, 10:39 AM
Nice , I like the globe!!.

I do wish it was bigger and on the roof but oh well , this is fine aswell.

I also dig the look of the building , feels retro which I hope is the aesthetic of Metropolis in this universe overall aswell.
theBlackSquare - 6/20/2024, 10:47 AM
The globe appears to be spherical and has continents on it.
Good job lads, carry on.
sheisthekey - 6/20/2024, 11:58 AM
I'm getting Superman Returns vibes with that building and glove, could this be a homage from Gunn to Singer?
valmic - 6/20/2024, 12:23 PM
Gunn is definitely paying homage to all that came before.
