DC Studios is embarking on an exciting new chapter, led by co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran, heralding a fresh era for the DC Universe. The anticipation surrounding their creative approach to the DC mythos continues to escalate, fueled by Gunn’s remarkable contributions to The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Gunn has already confirmed that certain Guardians cast members will join him in this new venture, with Pom Klementieff, who portrays Mantis, hinting at ongoing discussions. In a recent interview, Klementieff unveiled that Gunn has a specific character in mind for her, promising an action-packed continuation.

“We’ve been talking about it,” Klementieff revealed. “There’s one specific character that James Gunn’s thinking of. It would continue doing action too.”

The inaugural blockbuster film in the DC Universe under Gunn’s direction is set to be Superman: Legacy. Gunn assumes the roles of writer and director for the film, while David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan take center stage as Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane, respectively. Superman: Legacy delves into the story of Superman’s journey, navigating the reconciliation between his Kryptonian lineage and his upbringing as Clark Kent in Smallville, Kansas. As the embodiment of truth, justice, and the American way, Superman is guided by human kindness in a world that sometimes overlooks these virtues.
