As filming continues on James Gunn's Superman ("Legacy" has been dropped) in Svalbard, Norway, the first photos from the set have been shared online (via Just Jared).

Unfortunately, these shots don't reveal David Corenswet suited-up as the Man of Steel, but they do give us a first glimpse of Maria Gabriela de Faria in-costume as the Engineer!

The Deadly Class actress was spotted shooting a scene in a harness (most likely for a flight sequence) and leather outfit, sporting the same hairdo she had in the officially-released cast photo.

In the comics, Angela Spica, aka Engineer, is a member of the super-group known as The Authority. She has a liquid body due to nanites in her bloodstream, and has the ability to create solid objects with this metal alloy.

We don't know if these exact powers will carry over for the character's big-screen debut, however.

Check out the Superman set photos at the link below, and be sure to keep an eye out for updates.

Superman will also star Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern Guy Gardner, and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.

More recently, Sara Sampaio signed on to play Lex's assistant/lover Eve Teschmacher, and Skyler Gisondo has been cast as Jimmy Olsen.

Milly Alcock's Supergirl is also rumored to make her debut ahead of her own Woman of Tomorrow movie, but that's yet to be confirmed.

We're still not sure exactly how these other 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.

“Overjoyed to be announcing the start of principal photography on SUPERMAN today, February 29, which just so happens to be – coincidentally and unplanned – Superman’s birthday,” Gunn captioned the logo photo. “When I finished the first draft of the script, I called the film ‘Superman: Legacy.’ By the time I locked the final draft, it was clear the title was SUPERMAN,” he added. “Making our way to you July 2025.”

Gunn continues his streak of casting fine as wine Latinas and/or Spanish women

In before people start complaining about the look…

There have been atleast 3 Engineers in the comics and 2 have been versions of Angela Spica who is the version Maria seems to be playing.

One of them had a body suit that would come out of their skin while the other had nanotechnology that gave her that silvery metal look and could form solid objects with her body.

I personally think Gunn’s version will be combined with “Hope” from Brian Azzarello’s Lex Luthor:Man of Steel who was a female hero that he created to take attention away from Superman sway public opinion which I think will happen here too.

@TheVisionary25 -

I’ll complain about her look…

Why does her hairstyle have to be “edgy.” A normal hairdo would’ve worked just fine.

TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 3/15/2024, 3:26 PM
@tylerzero - maybe that’s just the hairstyle Maria had?

@TheVisionary25 - the more I think about it, the more I like this idea. Think it's exactly the kind of thing Gunn would do. He has changed villains quite a bit before.

Just wonder if it's gonna be the nanotech version then and whether or not she's gonna be called Angie, Hope or The Engineer.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 3/15/2024, 4:27 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I think Engineer and maybe she takes on the identity of “Angelica Spica”

I could see their being a bit of a nod by having her be named “Project Hope” or something.

bkmeijer1 - 3/15/2024, 6:35 PM
@TheVisionary25 - that makes sense. Gunn does like to call things "Project [insert name here]"

@TheVisionary25 - I think you might be right on the money with that, makes a lot off sense.

the plot being based on Luthor/what's so funny about truth justice and the american way.

with The Authority taking the place of The Elite.

@XtremeXFan - I was thinking the same thing. Mixing those two stories sounds exactly like what Gunn would do

@AmazingFILMporg - agreed and given her abilities she's going to be heavily enhanced with CGI
dracula
dracula - 3/15/2024, 3:21 PM
so either its being simplified to her just being able to generate the nanite weapons from her hands or the costume will be enhanced in post and they will cgi paint her face

jst5 - 3/15/2024, 3:28 PM
@dracula - You'd have to think they would cgi her skin....isn't the skin silver?
McMurdo
McMurdo - 3/15/2024, 3:38 PM
@dracula - Shell certainly be enhanced.
CaptainFlapjaks
CaptainFlapjaks - 3/15/2024, 6:03 PM
@dracula - perhaps its a xmen 2000s collosus or iceman incident where she can turn on and off the metal skin effect?

Lmfao Gunn and his cheap CW looking suits.

It may look better in post but I ain't holding my breath.

@Nomis929 - hahaha 😂 that last bit of dialogue lol


I found her first appearance in Authority 1 for 2 dollars in at least a 9.4. couldn't believe it. The shop owner almost didn't want to let me have it but I'm a regular and he knew how salty I would be. He's usually psychotic about digging through his back issues to re-price I remember him digging out Lady Deadpool literally an hour after the rumor went life I walk in to find it cuz I knew it's be there and see him pull it. I'm like you sneaky sneaky little man

Can't Wait for Comic Con 2024

I wonder which trailers will get the most hype

Supeman
Captain America Brave New World
Joker Folie a Deux
Daredevil: Born Again

@WakandaTech -

1st Superman
2nd Daredevil (maybe, Marvel knows how to edit a trailer to make it look better than it actually is)
3rd The Joker 2
4th Falcon Of America:So Brave New World

bkmeijer1 - 3/15/2024, 4:07 PM
@marvel72 - I'll stick to Captain America, but the added 'so' to 'So Brave New World' is pretty funny

@WakandaTech - The Fantastic Four.

Looks like she’s wearing a costume from one of the Singer X-Men movies. 🤷‍♂️

I see some folks still don't understand that set photos of costumes, and on screen versions of costumes are often very different. Those motion tracking dots on the suit are obvious indications that the suit will be added to, and or tweaked in post. We see this on almost everyone super hero costume. In fact motion tracking has become so advanced that sometimes you don't even need the dots.

I get being skeptical, but come on guys lol.

@RedFury - most of us are going off gunn iffy track record on superhero costumes. The is miss more often than hit imo

@AquaClunge - this surprises me because I can't really think of a costume under his watch that I would say looks bad. I enjoyed all of the costumes in GotG, Peacemaker looks exactly like he's supposed to, and his SS characters all looked great as well.
DeadClunge
DeadClunge - 3/16/2024, 6:20 AM
@RedFury - high evolutionary, nova corps, Adam warlock all looked terrible imo. Gamora's leather jacket combo looked pretty boring compared to some of her comic costumes, I liked peacemakers outfit but hated King shark's design.

Sometimes he hits the mark other times he doesn't for me.
RedFury
RedFury - 3/16/2024, 10:38 AM
@AquaClunge - that's fair, I can see where you're coming from on those side characters in the sense that their on page comic looks certainly were better than what we got.

Within the guardians universe I just chalked it up to being the space vibe of it all. Truly I believe that's a sort of MCU problem in general. The costumes are often over designed; but it doesn't bother me as much I guess.

To each their own :)

I'm not gonna make an opinion on a freaking set photo, especially with no context or knowledge of how it's going to look on screen.

You guys are just being ridiculous.

Hopefully she is chrome looking in the movie,she looks chrome to me in the comics.
