Superman director James Gunn may not have shared a new look at David Corenswet as the Man of Steel for Superman Day, but thanks to a new set video, we do have what might well be our first glimpse of another DC Comics hero that's set to make his big-screen debut in the upcoming DCU reboot.

After initially setting up at the Headlands Beach State Park in Cleveland, Ohio last week, production has moved to Mentor, Ohio, and this video appears to show a stunt sequence either being filmed or rehearsed.

While most of the footage is taken from a fair distance above the set, the camera does zoom in towards the end, giving us a quick look at who is believed to be X-Men: First Class actor Edi Gathegi as Mr. Terrific.

It's impossible to tell for certain, but the guy in the red shirt is a tall, well-built Black man who launches himself into the air at one point, so there's a decent chance this is indeed Curtis Holt using his T-Spheres to take down some bad guys.

So far, the only major reveal that has come from set photos is a glimpse of María Gabriela de Faría in-costume as The Engineer, but we did get a first official look at David Corenswet in his Super-suit a few weeks ago.

The image, which showed an already battle-tested Man of Steel putting his boots on to go deal with another potentially catastrophic threat to Metropolis, was effective enough, but it's probably fair to say that the majority of fans weren't overly impressed.

Superman will also star Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, and Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho.

Sara Sampaio is on board as Lex's assistant/lover Eve Teschmacher, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Neva Howell will play "Ma" and "Pa" Kent, and Wendell Pierce will play Perry White. 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 first official photo earlier this year. “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.”

@Evansly - Haha for real! I Gota say though, Gunn and Co have done a good job so far in keeping the productions quite close knit. There really hasnt been anything too revealing in terms of paparazzi set photos. All we've really seen is just what he's revealed himself and a couple of pap photos of the engineer

@dagenspear - what did you think of Acolyte EP 3. I enjoyed first two, but the third jumped the shark for me in many ways.
dagenspear - 6/13/2024, 5:41 PM
@McMurdo - Not watching it. Personally, I don't have much interest in the structure of that story (call me weak in fandom but I'd rather see a story about more impactful moments in the Star Wars world or characters, wasn't sure about Andor though either before I watched it, thought it was one of if not THE strongest thing Disney has done with Star Wars). From what I've hear, 3rd episode is bad and cheap, other episodes, heard complaints (from some of the more aggressive attitudes) but what little I saw wasn't really much bad in writing construction wise to me, more weak in execution and/or foundation, but don't know .

@dagenspear - well we are getting the story where is Darth Bane and the rest of the siths, The Old Republic, so that's the most I'm interested, but I like this show.
dagenspear - 6/13/2024, 11:47 PM
@RegularPoochie - I don't know what this show is doing. LORD willing, if I hear about something I'd find interesting, like those things, I may take a look.
McMurdo - 6/14/2024, 3:56 AM
@dagenspear - yep. First two aren't too bad. Third one is really really awful honestly. I don't blame you.
RegularPoochie - 6/14/2024, 7:58 AM
@McMurdo - I second this, it wasn't bad bad, but it was way too much downward, as it should have been upwards, lol.

@harryba11zack - dude, Gunn's first look/release of this dude is important considering the a-hole turned Gathegis into an "ashy" to-be-death statue.
This kid is WAY better than that racist garbage.

Glad for the dude. He was great on Start Up and For All Mankind.
TheVisionary25 - 6/13/2024, 2:50 PM
Yeah , seems like it could be Edi…

Also it’s definitely stunt rehearsal moreso than shooting (idk how anyone would think it would be the latter).

Anyway , he’s a good actor & choice for the role so looking forward to seeing him as the 3rd smartest man in the DCU!!.
