“Superman” is Coming: Director James Gunn Says His Take on the Comic Book Hero is On Track for July 2025


A new “Superman” is coming, like it or not.

New DC comics movies head James Gunn says on Twitter X that his version of the well worn tale is coming in July 2025.

The new take stars David Corenswet as Clark Kent/Superman and Rachel “Maisel” Brosnahan as Lois Lane. No word yet on Jimmy Olsen, but it worries me that Pete Davidson could get that role. Richard Kind should play Perry White. But no one asked me.

PS Why is Superman one word while Spider Man is two?
